As usual, Time Magazine has elected the person of the year. The 2013 chosen one is the Pope Francis.
The People’s Pope is distinguished by his charisma and by his willing to turn the Vatican into a more humble church. His simplicity has gathered millions of believers and has given some credibility back to Catholicism.
