Ignatius Press’ Jesuit Fr. Fessio on Pope Francis

From the Founder and Publisher of Ignatius Press, Father Joseph Fessio — himself a Jesuit — comes the following commentary:

“It is a brilliant stroke of the Holy Spirit that completely faked out the media (and me too, I have to say). A son of Ignatius takes the name of Francis. A man of Old World heritage who is part of the New World. Truly a Pontifex Maximus (which means “the greatest builder of bridges”). He’s solidly orthodox with a zeal for the poor. His model is the obedience of Ignatius and the poverty of Francis. How blessed we Catholics are in our popes!”

Does this mean we can count on some English translations of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio books soon?

"Only good things are to come!! Saying yes is the best. See you around, friend."
