The Future of Catholicism -- Up Next: Perspectives on the Future of Everything

10/14/2016; 29 minutes

Back in 2005, Thomas J. Reese -- who is both a distinguished journalist and a Roman Catholic priest -- lost his job as the editor-in-chief of a leading Jesuit magazine after the Vatican concluded that under his leadership the publication was too often running afoul of official Church doctrine. But that, of course, was before Pope Francis came along who over the last three years has inspired a whole new generation of reform-minded Catholics. In this edition of "Up Next," Reese ponders both the future of his church and the challenges that this 79-year-old pope now faces. (#31478)
