The disturbingly many facets of Francis
Ten years ago, Francis was elected pope. An interim assessment of the international role of the Holy See in his pontificate.
"Francis the Enigmatic" was the headline of a German weekly magazine a year after his election in 2013. Ten years later, some mysteries have been solved, others remain.

And there are many facets to be illuminated in this pontificate. The results are not always flattering for the Argentine Jorge Mario Bergoglio. But some of his initiatives will remain in historical memory.
