• What is the mission of the Pope?
  • What is the theology of Pope Francis?
  • How is he healing the divisions in the world and in the Church?

Pope Francis has been the head of the Church for 10 years as Bishop of Rome. Upon his accession, he set out to reform the Curia, decentralize the Church, and ultimately change communication within the Church and from the Church to the world. How has he succeeded in his intentions so far? Many see his pontificate as a needed new wind for the Church, an aggiornamento 2.0. Others fear the doctrinal ambiguity of papal documents and pronouncements, as well as the widening schisms in the Church (Amoris Laetitia, Tradicionis custodes, the German Synod). The aim of the event will be to explore these two perspectives in an honest Czech-Slovak theological discussion.
