(CNSNews.com) – In the latest edition of Vanity Fair in Italy, gay pop-superstar Elton John praises Pope Francis for his humility and calls him a “beacon of hope.”

The Italian version of Vanity Fair names Pope Francis as its Man of the Year. In the cover story, Sir Elton John is quoted as saying,  “Francis is a miracle of humility in an era of vanity.”

Further, as reported by the Catholic Herald, Elton John says in the tribute that Pope Francis’s “beacon of hope will bring more light than any advancement of science, because no drug has the power of love.”

In its tribute to the Pope, Vanity Fair said, “His first one hundred days have already placed him in the category of world leaders who make history. But the revolution continues.”
