The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is “encouraging Catholics to learn about the Pope — in 140 characters or less,” a statement reported.

Starting Monday and through Friday, Oct. 29, the USCCB will post one question a day to their Twitter followers (using the hashtag #popeculture) on the life and teachings of Benedict XVI.

The first person to provide the correct answer as an @reply will receive a free copy of the book, “Benedict XVI: Essays and Reflections on His Papacy.”

The bishops’ similar Facebook campaign ran from Oct. 11 through Oct. 15.
