“TIME”- PERSON OF THE YEAR IS POPE FRANCIS

The editor said our Pope has become a new voice of conscience “For pulling the papacy out of the palace and into the streets, for committing the world’s largest church to confronting its deepest needs and for balancing judgment with mercy. Pope Francis is TIME’s 2013 Person of the Year, “ wrote managing editor Nancy Gibbs.

“Rarely has a new player on the world stage captured so much attention so quickly–young and old, faithful and cynical– as Pope Francis.”
“In his nine months in office, he has placed himself at the very centre of the central conversations of our time: about wealth and poverty, fairness and justice, transparency, modernity, globalization, the role of women, the nature of marriage, the temptations of power.”
