Pope Francis after two years: a glimpse back

It's been two years since Pope Francis was elected to the Chair of Peter, and it's interesting looking back to see what was being said in the media about him just days into his pontificate. This, from Whispers in the Loggia (March 18, 2013) is, I suppose, as good an example as any; and if it shows us anything -- from cufflinks to substance -- perhaps it shows us that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Maybe another thing to consider is the question: who were the first to understand the intentions of Pope Francis most completely and accurately, the conservatives or the liberals?
