The pope tops Fortune’s idiosyncratic list of the world’s 50 greatest leaders.

In order to make the list you couldn’t be dead or retired. The other criteria? “In an era that feels starved for leadership, we’ve found men and women who will inspire you — some famous, others little known, all of them energizing their followers and making the world better,” the magazine says.

President Obama does not make Fortune’s list.

Instead, it’s chock full of CEOs, with a sprinkling of celebrities and former heads of state/politicians thrown in, including Derek Jeter (No. 11); Michael Bloomberg (15); Angelina Jolie (21);  Gabrielle Giffords (24).

The top 10 …

1. Pope Francis, pontiff, Catholic Church

2. Angela Merkel, chancellor, Germany

3. Alan Mulally, CEO, Ford Motor Co.

4. Warren Buffett, CEO, Berkshire Hathaway

5. Former President Bill Clinton, founder, The Clinton Foundation

6. Aung San Suu Kyi, chair, National League for Democracy

7. Gen. Joe Dunford, Commander, U.S. Forces, Afghanistan

8. Bono, lead singer, U2

9. Dalai Lama, spiritual leader of the Tibetan people

10. Jeff Bezos, CEO, Amazon.com
