Power of papal rhetoric

Sandro Magister: “This benevolence of the media toward Pope Francis is one of the features that characterize the beginning of this pontificate.

The gentleness with which he is able to speak even the most uncomfortable truths facilitates this benevolence. But it is easy to predict that sooner or later it will cool down and give way to a reappearance of criticism.”

A very nice examination of PF’s rhetorical habits, illustrated in his morning homilies.
