Good Profile of Fr. Joseph Fessio

Good profile on the man rumored to replace Archbishop William Levada at the Archdiocese of San Francisco, and who otherwise may be the most influential priest in the U.S.

It discusses his role in founding Ignatius Press, his relationship with B-16, his dismissal from the St. Ignatius Institute at USF, his banishment from San Francisco, and his resurfacing at Ave Maria University.

I only wish there had been some discussion of the rumors of financial mismanagement which have touched upon him at the St. Ignatius institute and Ave Maria.

I found the profile on a U.K. website called the Tablet by way of the Curt Jester. According to the comments on the Curt Jester post, it was apparently a surprise that the Tablet wrote so favorably about an orthodox priest.
