About

Overview

Pope Francis was elected after the first papal resignation in nearly six centuries. Francis inherited a Church in crisis: sex abuse scandals, Vatican disorder, and a diminishing Catholic flock in a changing world. The first Latin American pope, Pope Francis has brought social justice commitments to Church reform and to international affairs. His efforts have drawn simultaneous acclaim and controversy as he has attempted to balance major changes with the fundamental teachings of the Catholic Church. Media Literacy Terms and Questions are also featured in this unique collection of coverage centering around one of the world's prominent religious leaders.
