“The Pope Whisperer”

Who is he? The pope whisperer.

Why is he in the news? He’s the first journalist to conduct an extended interview with a pope. The result is his book Light of the World.

Most appealing characteristic? Dogged determination to get that interview.

Least appealing characteristic?
An ego that has grown with his status, former colleagues say.

Most likely to say “Just a few minutes more, Holy Father.”

Least likely to say
“About that Virgin Birth . . .”

And in case you haven’t guessed who they are talking about, see here.
