The typing in quotes is the end of the letter that came after “To Read the Full Story."  that I took from my print edition.

Regarding “Pope Francis’s Unofficial Revolution” (Review, Nov. 7):

The job of a pope is to make clear authentic Catholic teaching and to refute error. The papacy is supposed to be “the touchstone of unity.” Pope Francis is a master at sowing confusion and misguiding the faithful.
