Reuters: Behind the Charm, a Political Pope

Reuters reports:
"Jorge is a political man with a keen nose for politics," says Rafael Velasco, a Jesuit priest and former colleague who is now rector of the Catholic University of Cordoba, in central Argentina. "It's not an act, the humility. But it's part of his great capacity to intuitively know and read people."
I don't get the connection between humility and a "great capacity to intuitively know and read people."  This might be a subtle attempt at signalling the Pope's overwhelming public displays of "humility," might be at bit much for even some Jesuits.

Prepare for the attacks on free markets by this Pope.

  1. The humility is a good sign. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt until attacks on the free market actually come. I'm not Catholic though.
