He’s on the same list this year with Broadway’s Lin-Manuel Miranda, Caitlyn Jenner, Lester Holt, and Mark Zuckerberg. Interestingly, he’s not on the list of “Leaders,” but grouped with “Titans.” (Other categories include “Artists,” “Pioneers” and “Icons.”)

In a brief appreciation, Vice President Joe Biden writes:

He’s electrified the world because he embodies the basic tenets of Catholic social doctrine that also cut across all great faiths—everyone is entitled to be treated with dignity; we have an obligation to help the poor; we have responsibilities to one another and to our planet. And he embodies our collective obligation to give meaning to these universal principles, that faith is a gift revealed not just in what we believe but also in what we do together. That’s especially the case in America, where the history of our journey is always in the direction of inclusiveness and acceptance, toward expanding rights and recognizing differences, and where everyone is welcome.
