TIME MAGAZINE’S ‘PERSON OF THE YEAR’ IS... THE POPE
TIME editors picked their annual Person of the Year and Pope Francis took home the title.
Pope Francis has a focus on compassion and the poor and has brought a new voice to the Catholic Church. The Pope is in a position of great power as the head of the Catholic Church, but he has been extremely humble - something that is not easy to do in his position of prestige.
Though he doesn't run a nation or have the power to start wars, Pope Francis has made a large impact as a key leader in our world today.
Edward Snowden was another man in the running for the Person of the Year crown for his leaking of the information on the way the NSA watches US citizens.
Freshman Senator Ted Cruz from Texas was also a runner up on this list along with Bashar Assad and Edith Windsor.
