Pope Francis has been named Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2013.

Time’s editor revealed the magazine’s decision on NBC’s “Today” Wednesday morning.

Pope Francis, who gained world praise in 2013, became the first Jesuit pope in March 2013 following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI.

Managing editor for Time Nancy Gibbs explained the magazine’s choice on Wednesday, calling the Pope “a new voice of conscience.”

“In his nine months in office, he has placed himself at the very center of the central conversations of our time,” she said. “About wealth and poverty, fairness and justice, transparency, modernity, globalization, the role of women, the nature of marriage, the temptations of power.”




  1. Even if I wasn’t Catholic, I’d still dig Pope Francis..Alot..But there are two other people I’d have picked for Person of the Year ; other than Pope Francis..He’s a solid 3rd place on my list


  2. I’m an old and long-time ex-Catholic, but I’m good with the choice of Pope Francis in the Top Two.
    On my list, he is right up there with #2 ranked Edward Snowden.
