He was, indubitably, quite the person — a physician, academic, journalist and an inspired diplomat.

He was outstanding as John Paul II’s spokesman and did a masterly job handling the pope’s last days, funeral and sede vacante.

His brilliance made highlighted the bumblings of his successor, Federico Lombardi — it was like Obama being succeeded by Donald!

I, as you can see from what I wrote in my “The Next Pope 2011” a great fan of Dr. Navarro-Valls.
