    This week marks the second anniversary of Pope Francis' election to the papacy. What impact has he really had on the Catholic Church? Edward Stourton speaks to two of his biographers. A report out this week by the Christian think tank Theos argues that cuts to legal aid in England and Wales are "threatening" the rule of law. We hear from the report's co-author and Law Society president, Andrew Caplen. Matt Wells reports from the US city of Ferguson, the scene of civil rights protests last summer, where tensions between young secular activists and older, more religious civil rights leaders are surfacing. In the 70th anniversary year of Christian Aid, Kevin Bocquet looks back the history of the charity. And as a series of public talks called "Faith and Fashion" resume at the London College of Fashion, we ask: what should you wear when you work for God?

We speak to Cardinal Vincent Nichols, leader of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.
