A friend sent me a link to George Weigel's article on the national Review Online site. His article titled: The First American Pope gives us some more background on our Holy Father as well as some insight into where his papacy may be headed.
Mr. Weigel met with the then Cardinal Bergoglio back in may 2012. He relates some of their conversation in his article.
While I knew that this cardinal was the right choice when he asked the faithful to pray for him before he gave us his blessing, I know it even more after reading this article.
Here is the link to The First American Pope.
