An 11:30 a.m. meeting in Rome with Apple's CEO Tim Cook — "Amministratore Delegato di Apple" — listed on a tweeted photo of Pope Francis' daily itinerary suggests that the Pontiff may be taking a greater interest in the digital world, according to Business Insider.

The Pope began this trend of meeting with tech innovators last week when he sat down with Alphabet CEO Eric Schmidt, according to a report from The Guardian. Pope Francis was the first pope to use an iPad, posts on Twitter and has hosted Google+ Hangouts. While the purpose of the meetings with Mr. Cook and Mr. Schmidt are unclear, the Pope has been a vocal supporter of the Internet, calling the digital world an environment rich with humanity in a 2014 speech.
