POPE FRANCIS ROCKS ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE COVER
Pope Francis has become the first pontiff to grace the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. It is a typical picture of the pope, smiling and waving, above the cover line, "The times they are a-changin.'"
This is one popular pope. Only last month he was smiling from the cover ofTime magazine as its 2013 "person of the year." And that was his second Time cover appearance last year.
But Rolling Stone is a rock music magazine, so it is a landmark decision to feature him. (No jokes then about a Rolling Stone gathers no mass).
Inside the magazine is a 7,700-word profile by contributing editor Mark Binelli, who writes: "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."
Never has a pope had so much in common with a rock star.
Pope Francis, who is known for his independent streak and for captivating crowds, has landed the February 2014 cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
“The times they are a-changin’ at the Vatican,” Rolling Stone declared in the headline, offering a look “inside the Pope's gentle revolution"
