I grew up under Jesuit influence. They were a great bunch of guys - clever, humble and practiced what they preached. Pope Francis, a Jesuit, was brought up in difficult times and in a difficult country by Australian standards. He was everything and more in his chosen vocation. That he survived 'political' challenges in Argentina both from within the Society of Jesus and externally from successive interfering governments demonstrates the measure of the man. As a believer, he has been clearly chosen to lead the Catholic church into the 21st century as a meaningful and caring institution of which to be proud. I could not put the book down.
