An interview with the Pope's secretary

Gerald has posted his translation of an interview with Monsigor Georg Gaenswein, the Pope's personal secretary. It is a very in-depth interview, touching on topics from his childhood in Black Forest to his path to the priesthood to, yes, whether the Pope is wearing Prada. The perhaps more globally important issues include the Pope's lecture in Regensburg, relations with the Islamic world and Summorum Pontificum. A yeoman's work in translation - someone send Gerald a big ol' pot of coffee from me!
