Fr. Thomas Reese, S.J.

Pope Francis After Six Years

Saturday, February 16, 2019 | 10:00 am

Thomas Reese

Six years ago, Pope Francis was elected pope and captured the imagination of the world.  He has changed the style of being pope and redirected the pastoral and political priorities of the church.  How effective has he been?  What have been his successes and failures?  Join us as Fr. Reese shares his insights into the first six years of Pope Francis' papacy.

Fr. Thomas Reese, S.J., is a senior analyst at Religion News Service.  Previously he was a columnist at the National Catholic Reporter (2015-2017) and an associate editor (1978-85) and editor in chief (1998-2005) at America magazine.  His column, Signs of the Times, appears regularly in the National Catholic Reporter.  Father Reese entered the Jesuits in 1962 and was ordained in 1974.  He was educated at St. Louis University, the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley, and at the University of California Berkeley, where he received a Ph.D. in Political Science.
