Pope Francis Named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year
Time magazine named Pope Francis its Person of the Year yesterday, crediting him with shifting the message of the Catholic Church while capturing the imagination of millions of people who had become disillusioned with the Vatican.
Time’s managing editor Nancy Gibbs explained the magazine’s choice on Wednesday, calling the Pope “a new voice of conscience.”
Francis, who gained world praise in 2013, became the first Jesuit pope in March 2013 following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI.
This is the third time the magazine has chosen a pope as its Person of the Year. ‘Time’ gave that honor to Pope John Paul II in 1994 and to Pope John XXIII in 1963.
