"We were looking for a man of genuine piety, of deep faith, with a clear sound line of doctrine, an affirmative, positive approach to the teaching on faith and morals. We were looking for a man, as the Italians say, 'uomo di governo,' a man with long history running a big diocese and a man who is capable of making decisions and hard decisions.”

The new Pope and Cardinal George Pell met nearly 15 years ago, and have worked together on several Vatican commissions. During their first greeting at the Sistine Chapel, Cardinal Pell swore him in complete loyalty.
