SCU Perspectives on Pope Francis, a Jesuit

Recent papal announcement brings media attention to campus


Santa Clara was at the epicenter of news around the March 13 selection of Argentine Jesuit, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, as Pope Francis. Two Jesuits who know the pope personally—Arthur Liebscher, S.J., '69 of SCU's history department and Alfonso Gomez, S.J., who is on sabbatical at SCU from his recent post as provincial of Argentina's Jesuits—spoke to several news stations about their respective friendships with the new pope. Fr. Liebscher's comments also appeared on Good Morning America. The campus was abuzz as Broncos watched in anticipation of the news. Check out the extensive attention our SCU community received, and a video of student and staff reactions to the news.
