Time Magazine named Pope Francis as Person of the Year. (Read Time’s story about the man, and the choice, here.)

He’s the third pope to be honored by Time in this way, following following Pope John XXIII in 1962 and Pope John Paul II in 1994.

We’d like to know: If the choice were up to you, would you have picked Pope Francis to be Person of the Year?
