The Tweetable Pope: A Spiritual Revolution in 140 Characters by O'Loughlin
Michael O’Loughlin uses Pope Francis’s almost daily “tweets” to his 21 million followers to explain why this pope has captured the world’s imagination and to explore his strategy and vision for the Catholic Church. Grouped by the Pope’s most pressing concerns: forgiveness, mercy, injustice, poverty, war, joy, the environment, and more. O’Loughlin contends that these seemingly simple communications provide a direct line to the Pope’s heart, illuminating a peaceful, loving, and courageous visionary. The Tweetable Pope is a thoughtful and enlightening examination of how the Pope is using this exciting and fascinating new medium to communicate directly to his flock, and how we, too, can be more centered on what matters most to God.
Michael O'Loghlin is a Boston Globe journalist and Catholic commentator.
