Pope Francis was just named TIME Magazine’s person of the year.
Who is Pope Francis? Asked this question himself in a celebrated interview with Jesuit publications in September, Pope Francis responded: “A sinner … this is the most accurate definition. It is not a figure of speech, a literary genre. I am a sinner.”
