Our pope this week was the first to hold the most popular papal name in Catholic Church history. A divisive figure in his early days, he repented of his old ways and went on to become so renowned that the emperor himself prostrated himself at this pope’s feet.
It just so happens that Episode #53 is on Pope #53. We swear we didn't realize this until after the episode was recorded.
