Pope Named 'Person of the Year'

Posted: Updated:

Pope Francis became the third Pope selected as Time Magazine's person of the year. 

Bismarck Bishop David Kagan says he thinks Pope Francis was selected because like the two other Popes who received the honor, he, too, made a global impact in a short period of time.

"The Holy Father is a very outgoing and engaging person and I think that immediately that got everyone's attention. He's kept everyone's attention with his consistent mercy and love of God of all people and his advocacy for the poorest of the poor," says Bishop David Kagan, Bismarck Diocese 

Next April, Pope Francis will canonize Pope John the 23rd and Pope John Paul the second as saints in the Catholic Church.
