Pope Francis I

PERSON OF THE YEAR: Pope Francis I has been making people rethink what it means to be catholic. Slightly different from previous popes, Francis has been showing the world how to practice the faith. Images of him kissing the disfigured and washing the feet of juviniles has given him great popularity. Chosing to live in his own apartment, cook his own meals, and drive himself from place to place, people of all nations and faiths are looking to him as a figure of humility and kindness. In the face of all of today's problems and questions, the pope has answered and responded faithfully. He has created a change in the hearts and minds of many, and challenges all catholics and others to be Jesus's hands and feet on Earth.
