After only nine months as the head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis has been named TIME magazine Person of the Year 2013.
TIME said the former Argentinian Cardinal has become the ‘new voice of conscience and is the person who had the greatest impact on the world in 2013.
“Rarely has a new player on the world stage captured so much attention so quickly – young and old, faithful and cynical – as Pope Francis,” editors at Time Magazine said.
The runner-up to the Pope is the National Security Agency whistle blower, Edward Snowden and third place is the unlikely activist, Edith windsor.
