Pope Francis Makes Surprise Appearance On Cover Of Rolling Stone Magazine



Estimated Reading Time: <1

Pope Francis has become the first ever pontiff to grace the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. The Pope is pictured smiling and waving in the cover of the magazine. The cover story about the Pope is titled, “The times they are a-changin.'”

Pope Francis is definitely one Popular Pope/ Last year he featured on Time magazine twice and was also the magazine’s ‘2013 Person of the year’

Rolling Stone is a rock music magazine and it is really surprising to see the Pope on it. The magazine’s contributing editor, Mark Binelli had some great words for the Pope:

 “In less than a year since his papacy began, Pope Francis has done much to separate himself from past popes and establish himself as a people’s pope.”

“After the disastrous papacy of Benedict, a staunch traditionalist who looked like he should be wearing a striped shirt with knife-fingered gloves and menacing teenagers in their nightmares, Francis’s basic mastery of skills like smiling in public seemed a small miracle to the average Catholic.

But he had far more radical changes in mind. By eschewing the papal palace for a modest two-room apartment, by publicly scolding church leaders for being ‘obsessed’ with divisive social issues like gay marriage, birth control and abortion (‘Who am I to judge?’ Francis famously replied when asked his views on homosexual priests) and – perhaps most astonishingly of all – by devoting much of his first major written teaching to a scathing critique of unchecked free-market capitalism, the pope revealed his own obsessions to be more in line with the boss’s son.”
