Pope Francis: Amid Darkness in the World, Jesus Brings Light





The Argentine-born Francis was elected pope in March, a month after the surprise resignation of Emeritus Pope Benedict.

Since then, the 77-year-old Francis' popularity has soared and he has been praised for helping to reshape the image of the church.

In December, Time Magazine named him "Person of the Year," and lauded his call for the healing of the masses who face disease, poverty and personal turmoil in their lives.
