They say that behind every great man, there is a great woman. In the case of Pope Francis, there were more than one (taking for granted, of course, the immense presence of our Blessed Mother Mary in his life). Here we would like to share a little about those who were most influential. The source for today’s post is Austen Ivereigh’s “The Great Reformer”, a thorough biography of Pope Francis which, it must be said, (like any book) requires a critical reading.
