person of the year

Dec 11, 2013

This morning TIME magazine named Pope Francis as Person of the Year for 2013. There is no great surprise in this since several pope’s have been so named (Pope John Paul II in 1994 and Pope John XXIII in 1962).

One of the advantages for us when a pope receives this TIME title, is that the media is filled with commentaries on the pope, with some pretty useful reflections on his style and emphases.  You can find these comments online with a Google search.  While some of these articles miss the point by remaining with outward appearances, a number of others get the point and so present thorough and insightful reflections on Francis the person and Francis the pope.
