Who Am I to Judge?

Author, former priest, and Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence James Carroll explores the first 400 days of Pope Francis’s tenure. Mere days after the Pope names 19 new cardinals, Carroll leads a highly-interactive discussion on his radical rule that isn’t afraid to criticize the Church. Drawing on his December article in The New Yorker, our expert speaker sheds light on how the Pope’s style of “collegiality” came to be. From his commitment to serving the poor to his markedly conservative service in Argentina, this fascinating religious figure prompts myriad questions to which Carroll has the answers.
