Pope Francis Named Time Magazine Person of the Year

December 12, 2013

Time Magazine’s pick of Pope Francis as its “Person of the Year” is an excellent and inspired choice. In its decision, Time points to the Holy Father’s calls for compassion and his humility in his service as the Vicar of Christ. May those who encounter this news join in the mission of Pope Francis to joyfully share the Word of God with all people. Let us pray for him and ask the Lord to bless him with continued energy.
