James Carroll profiles the Francis papacy


Noted author James Carroll has written a comprehensive article in The New Yorker on the Francis papacy. I would strongly recommend the article as required reading for those who closely follow the workings of the church. Carroll covers both the life of Francis prior to his elevation to the papacy as well as his activities during his first months as pope.
