Fr John 2  As we wrap up our third year of “Reasonably Catholic: Keeping the Faith,” and with Pope Francis soon to be packing his bags for his USA trip, Passionist Father John Baptist Pesce, a faithful supporter of RC:KF since its launch, reads from his latest research.

In a retreat talk based on months of study and delivered here for the first time, Father John delves beyond the cult of personality around Pope Francis, tracing the successes and failures that turned a quite conservative Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio into the progressive-minded, open-hearted Pope who has captured the world’s attention.
