Pope Francis met with Apple CEO Tim Cook at the Vatican on Monday morning.
Cook heads up a company whose stock market value hit $3 trillion in June. He spoke privately with Pope Francis on Oct. 3, the eve of the feast day of the pope’s namesake, St. Francis of Assisi — known for embracing radical poverty.
The technology executive has been in Italy since Sept. 28. He first traveled to Naples, where he launched the first Apple Developer Academy in Europe and received an honorary degree from the University of Naples Federico II.
Thank you to the University of Naples Federico II for the honor, for your hospitality, and for the incredibly important work you do. https://t.co/NfP8a6ZjC4— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) September 29, 2022
