The “Unorthodox” orthodox Pope Francis has been named Time Magazine’s person of the year.

“He took the name of a humble saint and then called for a church of healing,” Time wrote in its announcement. “The septuagenarian superstar is poised to transform a place that measures change by the century.”

Following him in the top five were NSA leaker Edward Snowden, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad amongst others.

The top 10 also included Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, President Barack Obama, Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of Health and Human Services and more.

The new Pope “comes at a time when the church seemed to be needing a huge burst of new energy,” Time contributor Howard Chua-Eoan said in a video announcing the magazine’s decision.
