CAMPAIGN TO NOMINATE POPE "MAN OF THE CENTURY"

Dominican Nuns' Internet Appeal

          ROME, JUN 16 (ZENIT).- "Time" magazine is conducting a poll among its readers for the nomination of "Man of the Century." (Editor's decisions may override or modify the results of the web poll.) A group of Dominican nuns supporting John Paul II's nomination have started an email campaign to bring this about. Votes can be placed at TIME MAN OF THE CENTURY.

          The Sisters are very worried that the cover of the last issue of "Time" this millennium will carry the picture of a terrible historical figure like Hitler. At the time of this writing, the standings were: Elvis Presley (16.72%), Yitzhak Rabin (16.26%), Adolf Hitler (13.47%), Albert Einstein (12.29%), and John Paul II (9.00%). Mother Theresa lags far behind, with 0.96% of the vote. ZE99061603
