About the Lecturer
Dr. Austen Ivereigh is a writer, commentator and speaker on contemporary church affairs, with a specialist interest in the Church of Latin America and the papacy of Francis. He drew on his D.Phil. from St Antony’s College, Oxford, in 1993 — which was published as Catholicism and Politics in Argentina, 1810-1960 — for his biography of Pope Francis, The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope, which has been translated into many languages. He has recently published a follow-up, reviewing the pontificate, published in the US as Wounded Shepherd: Pope Francis and the Struggle to Convert the Catholic Church and now available in the UK. As a journalist and commentator, he has written widely on church affairs and on the Francis papacy more specifically for The Tablet, Commonweal, The New York Times, Crux, America magazine, Thinking Faith and many others. He appears often on BBC and other media. 

About the LMU Latinx Theology and Ministry Initiative
This initiative emerged from a need to assess and then respond to the large population of Hispanic Catholics in the United States, and is a joint project of Loyola Marymount University's Department of Theological Studies and Center for Religion and Spirituality. As a Catholic university in the largest Catholic archdiocese in the country, LMU is uniquely situated to gather data and marshal resources that will aid in preparing Latinx Catholics for leadership and service in the Church. As the Hispanic Catholic population continues to grow, LMU seeks to grow in the capacity to truly serve this important community in the Body of Christ.
