The humble yet wildly popular leader of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Frances, will be featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine’s February 13 issue.
The cover article, “Pope Francis: The Times They Are A-Changin’,” which was published Tuesday on Rolling Stone’s website, addresses everything from Francis’ rise to the papacy to his widely discussed comments about homosexuality and economics.
The lengthy piece also discusses the pope’s leadership approach and the humility that has made him endearing to so many.
“It’s a funny thing, papal celebrity,” wrote Binelli. “As the archbishop of Buenos Aires, [Jorge Mario] Bergoglio had never been an especially gifted public speaker. But now that he’s Pope Francis, his recognizable humanity comes off as positively revolutionary.”
Pope Francis has become the first pontiff to grace the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
He has also graced the cover of Time magazine.
