Abstract

Pope Francis gave an interview with the Jesuit periodical La Civilta Cattolica about himself, his Jesuit identity, and the state of the Church today. Much of the media focused on his comments about seeking a new balance in dealing with controversial topics like abortion and homosexuality. In this conversation with National Public Radio reporter Nialla Boodhoo I talk about some of the broader dimensions of the Pope's vision in this rather extensive and revealing interview.
