(Vatican Insider) Well, for what it’s worth (and there’s no telling what it’s actually worth), Forbes magazine has ranked Pope Francis as the 4th most powerful man in the world. Putin, Obama and Xi Jinping round out the top four. Each year Forbes provides a power-ranking of the heads of state, financiers, philanthropists and entrepreneurs.
My guess is that when told the news, Pope Francis said “…and? Who cares. Let’s get back to serving the needy.”
