Jorge Rouillon is a veteran Buenos Aires journalist who became acquainted with Pope Francis when he served as archbishop of Buenos Aires from 1998-2013.
Rouillon has the distinction of being among the many people for whom the future pope has prayed for personally, after he mentioned to Archbishop Bergoglio that he was awaiting the results of medical tests for possible prostate cancer. Doctors subsequently gave Rouillon a clean bill of health, but not knowing this to be the case, the archbishop continued to pray for the journalist for several weeks afterward.
In this interview with Register correspondent Father Fernando Mignone, Rouillon shares memories of that incident and of other meetings with the man who was fated to become the Churchs first Latin-American pope.

Let’s hear the unfiltered truth from those who remember Bergoglio’s actions during Argentina’s Dirty War.
Reacting within days to the statements, speaking through a spokesman to Newsweek Argentina, then Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio declared his "unhappiness" with the statements, made at the University of Regensburg in Germany, and encouraged many of his subordinates with the Church to do the same.
"Pope Benedict's statement don't reflect my own opinions", the then Archbishop of Buenos Aires declared. "These statements will serve to destroy in 20 seconds the careful construction of a relationship with Islam that Pope John Paul II built over the last twenty years".
"Son of the Church", my aspe.
For starters, all popes are the enemy of Christ. There were excellent historical and biblical reasons Protestants traditionally believed, with near the papacy was antichrist.
I don’t post these things to anger Catholics. I’m sorry they have been duped, but they need the truth. And Evangelicals need the truth as well. Most of us would be better off if we understood why our ancestors believed as they did.
As for the Dirty War, many who were there swear Bergoglio wasn’t such a saint.
Antichrist : The Pope? -The Historic Protestant View
The Papacy is Antichrist: A Demonstration
There were Popes, including Peter, long before the first protestants, . Was Peter an enemy of Christ?
There’s been good popes and bad popes. The Church marches on.
Thanks for admitting that!
I can't believe that, even as I'm a critic of some aspects of the theology which has developed concerning the office.
But I'll check the "war" link, just to see what is being said.
I think I've seen or understand the other info well enough.
My own opinion on these sort of matters, along with the "whore of Babylon" as to that spirit's identity, is difficult to describe. She wants to sit anywhere and everywhere...and is most certainly not limited to sitting upon the Roman Catholic church. No, it's different. Any believer can fend her off. Fending off her minions, even if not allowing them to lead one along her paths, can be a bit more difficult. And when her minions come for one's life --- then better be prayed up and ready, even ready to die. It has happened.
They burned Hus, and would have burned Luther. But the persons who did the one crime, and would have enjoyed the other, were (and are) not the only murderers around, it does stand to bear in mind...
And the jury is still out on Francis. Pray a lot. He needs it. We all need it.
I do; every night.
It’s an utter misreading of a Scripture to believe Peter was anything but a little stone, as the original language attests. Christ Himself was the rock upon which the real church is built. Peter certainly was no pope. There is zero evidence from Scripture that he was treated as a pope and there is zero evidence he was ever in Rome. The truth is it took centuries for the Bishop of Rome’s seat to develop into anything resembling what we know as the papacy. The forces of iniquity that led to the papacy were already at work in Peter’s day, but it took time for them to coalesce into the papacy.
I don’t have time to run through history, but it doesn’t take long to uncover the truth if you really want it. Most don’t want it. Most people prefer myths, lies, and tradition to the truth, even when their own soul is at stake. 2 Thessalonians 2 speaks of people who would be fooled by the Son of Perdition because they “received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” But if you are one of those who received a love of the truth, and you have a genuine desire to uncover the truth, you might start by researching the Donation of Constantine and the Isidorian Decretals. You will soon see the papacy rose to power on frauds, forgeries and other wickedness. These things have been recognized for centuries by the people of God.
I pray you are a lover of truth.
I didn’t give a link because I don’t know what can be trusted. I have a genuine curiosity about what Bergoglio was really doing during that time. That’s why I said I would like to hear from those who know. Some allege his actions directly led to deaths, to include Catholic priests who were tortured and killed. Did he speak up about the thousands who went missing.
