Little Flowers

According to The Telegraph, Andrea Tornielli is releasing a new book about Pope Francis entitled, 'The Little Flowers of Pope Francis'.

Tornielli's book will be interesting.

I can't wait for the recounting of 'how Pope Francis tamed the self-absorbed, promethean neo-Pelagian, sourpuss, long-faced mournful, authoritarian, elitist, querulous and disillusioned pessimist, careerist, elitist, liquid Christian, rosary counting, functionary airport Bishop'.
