TIME's Person of the Year - Pope Francis

TIME just named their Person of the Year - they chose the Pope;
Man who gives lapsed Catholics a modicum of hope
That the Church is capable of modifying views.
Francis walks a different path while in St. Peter's shoes.

Said the Church has focused on the rules of sex too much
And that Congregations have, hence, fallen out of touch
With the teachings Jesus preached on what our lives are for.
Francis wants good Catholics to work to help the poor.

'though I'm glad the tone has changed, the dogma's still the same.
You still can't become a priest if you were born a dame.
Church still harbors clergy who helped cover up a crime...
Who am I to judge him, though?  I'll leave that up to TIME.
