In this program, I am not suggesting that these are the two best popes in the history of the Catholic Church. Rather, I am proposing they both have given us a somewhat “new and different model” of what a pope can be in this complex contemporary world.
We will review many of the decisions / insights that they have given us that may move the role of the Bishop of Rome in some interesting new directions for the Catholic Church. We will also discuss many of their outstanding personal qualities that have attracted great numbers of people to them. They have also raised some issues, quite different from their predecessor’s, which have caused some controversy, especially among the more conservative cardinals and bishops, issues that remain unresolved.
