Francis has another interview scheduled for 8 August 2014 with Padre Joaquin Giangreco on the parochial radio station of Campo Gallo. (For more on Giangreco scroll down below the video.) Like the professional football athletes he so admires, Francis also believes in intermittent training. Coming off his working vacation Francis warmed up for the interview this past weekend with a second phone call to the cloistered Carmelite community of nuns in Lucena, Spain.
Padre Joaquin Giangreco's interview with Francis will be the first ever live radio interview for a pontiff. No word yet on whether or not Francis will be taking callers' questions. Giangreco is one of Francis' famous street priests of Argentina and their history goes back some years.
