This article may be the most beautiful and eloquent I've read about Pope Francis. That it comes, not from a Catholic, but a Jew, makes it partcularly meaningful. As a Catholic, I am overjoyed at his selection, and I believe the Holy Spirit was present in the conclave. People of good will are hopeful. Those small, pitiful souls (they know who they are) who only want to cricitize, will certainly find fault with him. But that should be expected. Jesus was faultless, and look what they did to him. Can a mere mortal expect any more favorable treatment. Thanks, Paul, for having the class to say what many prominent Catholics should have said, but didn't.
