Francis in Profile

Nearly everything we were able to read about Pope Francis in the immediate aftermath of his election seems to have come (some of it verbatim) from a single source:  John L. Allen's March 3 profile posted on the National Catholic Reporter website.

Allen, as we have said before, seems to be the best-informed Vatican-beat journalist writing in the English language.  So although we could cut and paste a few of his observations here, we'll simply suggest that you read the whole piece.
