A Pontificate of Power

Filippo MontefortePope Francis looks on as he presides over the “24 Hours of the Lord” at the parish of Santa Maria delle Grazie al Trionfale, on March 17, 2023 in Rome.

COMMENTARY: Contrary to the storyline pushed by papal courtier Austen Ivereigh and others, Pope Francis exercises authority in the manner of a Jesuit superior who, after hearing those he chooses to hear, makes his own decision.
