  • How Pope Francis understands the reform of the Church
  • How Pope Francis was elected on the platform of a reform that went far deeper than what was normally being proposed by other Cardinals
  • How Pope Francis’ vocational story has prepared him for this reform, bringing the Lord’s mercy to a wounded world
  • How the Pope is seeking to reform both the clergy and the laity
  • How the 2007 Aparecida document of the General Assembly of the Bishops of Latin America and the Caribbean has charted the path for his papacy
  • How Pope Francis’ words during World Youth Day in Brazil put into action the type of reform Pope Francis is challenging all of us to live.
