First Time, now The Advocate — quite the year for Francis!

TIME-Cover-Pope FrancisTheAdvocate-Pope FrancisFor Pope Francis to be named Person of the Year by Time magazine … that’s understandable. After all, Pope Francis has captured the hearts (and, with his recent Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium, the minds) of countless millions around the world — Catholics and non-Catholics alike. But to be named Person of the Year by The Advocate, a leading magazine covering “Gay News, LGBT Rights, Politics and Entertainment”?  Now that’s progress!

One thought on “First Time, now The Advocate — quite the year for Francis!

  1. It is refreshing that Francis does not condemn homosexuality as intrinsically evil. That is not Catholic doctrine. But is it in the pope to change the doctrine that forbids any act of intercourse that is not open to the possibility of bringing new life? There’s a lot of work to be done yet.
