Cardinal Timothy Dolan praised Time Magazine Wednesday for picking Pope Francis for "Person of the Year".

The publication credits the former Argentine cardinal with making great strides in transforming the public perception of the Catholic Church.

The magazine cites his humility, calling him "The People's Pope," but also points out his embrace of technology, saying, "He makes masterly use of 21st-century tools to perform his first-century office."

Time goes on to say, "What makes this Pope so important is the speed with which he has captured the imaginations of millions who had given up on hoping for the church at all."

In a statement, Dolan said, "Pope Francis clearly radiates the joy that comes from loving God and caring for his people. There could be no finer choice for 'Person of the Year.'"
