EDITORIAL: Pope Francis clear choice for Man of Year

Many publications are now naming their Man, Woman or Person of the Year, and to us the clear winner of the award has to be Pope Francis for the positive influence he has had on the world – and not just its 1.2 billion Catholics.

Since becoming pope 21½ months ago, besides trying to make positive reforms in his church he has played a key role in world affairs. The latest example of that came 12 days ago when it was revealed that he had been instrumental in getting the United States and Cuba to re-establish diplomatic relations between them.

Do you agree with our editorial position that Pope Francis deserves the title Man of the Year?
