NZ media note Time’s choice of Pope Francis as Person of the year

Time magazine’s choice of Pope Francis a Person of the Year has prompted interest from the New Zealand media.

Auckland Diocese spokesperson Lyndsay Freer was interviewed on RadioLive last Thursday.

Mrs Freer told CathNews, “It’s no surprise, after reading his apostolic exhortation, Joy of the Gospel, and the many impromptu homilies at his daily Masses and public audiences, that Francis breaks new ground for Catholic sociology, while preserving doctrinal integrity.

“The carrot rather than the stick is his preferred modus operandi  focusing on the fact that we are all embraced and loved by God.”
