Time magazine recently released its acclaimed “World’s Most Influential People.”

Three of the Top 100 are men of faith:

  1. Bartholomew I, the leader of the Eastern Orthodox Church & Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople
  2. The Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism
  3. Richard Cizik, leader of the government affairs officer for the National Association of Evangelicals, as well as a pioneer in environmentalism

This from the story:

Other religious leaders contributed to the list by writing profiles of those named in the “Time 100.” Dallas megachurch pastor Bishop T.D. Jakes profiled movie mogul Tyler Perry and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu profiled performer Peter Gabriel.

Most notably missing from this list is Joseph Ratzinger. You know, this guy!
