Commenting article: Pope Francis Named Time's Person of Year 2013

Pope Francis has been named Time magazine's Person of the Year for 2013, the magazine revealed Wednesday.

Pope Francis stood out 'as someone who has changed the tone and perception and focus of one of the world's largest institutions in an extraordinary way,' Time managing editor Nancy Gibbs said Wednesday.

'But what makes this Pope so important is the speed with which he has captured the imaginations of millions who had given up on hoping for the church at all. People weary of the endless parsing of sexual ethics, the buck-passing infighting over lines of authority when all the while (to borrow from Milton),' the hungry Sheep look up, and are not fed,'' Time reports.
