The leader of the Church of England has publicly named his 'Person of the Year'.
No prizes for guessing who!
"He has changed the sense of direction and purpose of the Catholic (sic) Church", Mr. Justin Welby told the BBC.
Mr. Welby was joined in his accolade by The Financial Times who wrote in their editorial of 29th December, 2013, 'The Remarkable Figure of Pope Francis', that "Pope Francis has initiated a remarkable overhaul in the direction and management of the papacy".
The Grand Orient and The Rotary Club, LGBT, Time Magazine, The Church of England and The Financial Times constitute quite a remarkable representation of worldly movers, shakers, and opinion formers praising the leader of The Church of Vatican II. But just for good measure Esquire magazine, Vanity Fair and GQ magazine can be relied upon to promote the worldly appeal of Francis to the more down-market sections of the populace.
"If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated Me before you. If you had been of the world, the world would love its own".
- John. 15: 18-19.
