American ecclesiastic, Roman Catholic priest of the Jesuit order, and analyst for news media on affairs of the Catholic Church and of the Vatican. An intellectual and articulate member of the church, he was the editor of the weekly Catholic magazine, "America" and its website from June 1998 to May 2005.

The author of many books and artices, he has a Master of Arts degree from St. Louis University (1968), a Master's of Divinity from the Jesuit School of Theology, Berkeley (1974), and a Ph.D. in political science from the University of California, Berkeley (1976). He holds two honorary degrees and has worked at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington DC as a visiting fellow and senior fellow. In 1989 he published "Archbishop: Inside the Power Structure of the American Catholic Church."

An intelligent and insightful man, articulate and thoughtful, Reese was a favorite ecclesiastical commentator during the funeral of Pope John Paul II. He was evidently forced to resign from his editor's chair at "America" when Pope Benedict XVI assumed the office of Pope.
