Radio Curious guest host Martha McCabe discusses Pope Francis and the future of the Catholic Church with Father Tom Reese, a member of the Society of Jesus and appointee to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.
Vogel, Attorney and Counselor, is the Host and Producer of Radio Curious. Christina Aanestad is the Assistant Producer.
Marriage, divorce and the role of women in the Catholic church are some of the topics of this edition of Radio Curious, the second of two visits with Father Tom Reese, a member of the Society of Jesuits.
 
Martha McCabe, our guest host, is a retired higher education legal counsel and civil rights attorney with masters degrees in history and creative writing.  Brought up as a Roman Catholic, she graduated from Jesuit Santa Clara University and is now a secular Buddhist.  As a novelist, she was a guest on Radio Curious in 2006. 
 
Fr. Reese entered the Jesuits in 1962 and was ordained in 1974.  Currently, he is a senior analyst with the National Catholic Reporter and a member of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.
 
When Fr. Reese and Martha McCabe visited by phone on August 14, 2015, she began their conversation by inquiring about marriage in the Catholic Church.  While the Vatican views marriage as a sacred pact between two people, it forbids its priests from entering into that union.
