Play

10:00

He may be TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year, but not everybody loves Pope Francis’ unconventional approach to the papacy. He’s washed the feet of criminals, he’s personally corresponded with a group of gay Italians, and he drives an ’84 Renault.  This hour we’ll talk about whether conservative Catholics welcome the change or think he’s gone too far.

Guests

  • Matt C. Abbott, Catholic columnist for RenewAmerica
  • Michael Sean Winters, blogger and columnist for the National Catholic Reporter
  • Dr. Leo Madden, Associate Professor of Theology & Head of the Dept of Theology, Ohio Dominican University
