Blase Cupich

Archbishop of Chicago

Age: 65

Virtually unknown here six months ago, the mild-mannered former archbishop of Spokane, Washington (population 210,000), now oversees Chicago’s two million Catholics—35 percent of the Cook and Lake County population and the third-biggest flock in the nation. What’s more, he’s but a phone call away from his boss, Pope Francis, a man considered infallible by a billion people worldwide. Now that’s power.
