The unexpected retirement of Pope Benedict XVI and the election of Francis I, the first Pope from Latin America, appear to be bringing significant changes at the Vatican. The international role of the Catholic Church may change as well. Our panel of experts will analyze what the early days of the new Papacy tell us about the way ahead.
