Francis is the third Pope to be made Person of the year by Times Magazine. John Paul II got the same honor in 1994.
Time magazine named Pope Francis its Person of the Year on Wednesday, 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.
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.
The Argentine pontiff – who, as archbishop of Buenos Aires was known as the slum cardinal for his visits to the poor and penchant for subway travel – beat former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden and gay rights activist Edith Windsor for the award.
Why are secular people so found of the Pope?
Simply because he have promised them salvation, if they keep on going good work.
To make the Pope the man of the year 2013, is also an example of media being in the pockets of the men of power.
2013, was the year when Edvard Snowden exposed President Obama as a cyber criminal. But to honor Snowden is to risk being blacklisted in the USA.
2013, was also the year when Vladimir Putin stood up against the G8-Islamic Jihad consensus in Syria, blocking a new USA lead military assault. It was also the year when the freedom fighters in Turkey stood up against the facets dictatorship in Ankara. A year full of events, which deserve our attention.
What is the achievements of Pope Francis?
Forgotten is the tens of thousands of victims of criminal priests.
Has he compensated all the victims of sexual crimes and rapes by Roman Catholic priests?
Has he ended the mafia funding of the Vatican, by closing down the corrupt Vatican Bank?
Has he ended the Vatican’s support for the PLO, who wants to divide Jerusalem, and bring Judea and Samaria back under Islamic occupation?
The truth is that the present Pope is a glossy sweet talker, who keep on cover up all the crimes of the Vatican priesthood. The Pope do not represent Jesus the Messiah. But the hypocritical liars, who make a mockery out of the true Christian faith.
Stay away from this falsehood.
