Alan Jones and George Pell

Alan Jones

Sydney broadcaster Alan Jones spoke with Cardinal George Pell in Rome on the day of the inauguration of the newly elected Pope Francis. Is Pope Francis conservative or liberal?

In this wide-ranging 2GB interview, Cardinal Pell was asked for the inside story on the Papal conclave which elected Pope Francis and to introduce Australians to the new Pontiff. 

Will Pope Francis be a Pope for liberals or conservatives, asks Jones - and what does the election of this humble outsider with 'mud on his boots' mean for the Church and world?
