It’s been five years since the election of Pope Francis, the charismatic and highly-visible leader of today’s Catholic Church. During his tenure, Francis has shaken up some of the church’s long-standing traditions and taken steps to be more inclusive, but he’s also been criticized by some for not doing enough to address things like sex abuse and women’s issues. This hour, we look at the tenure of Pope Francis to this point, as well as his impact inside and outside of the Catholic Church.
