    For the holiest of holies, he has about as much theological insight as a random facebook picture posted by your grandmother.

  2. If you knew that any out-of-context remark you made ran the risk of being argued about for the next few centuries, your tweets would be pretty anodyne too.

    Jesus prefers bumper stickers!

    “How can we celebrate the Year of Faith better in our daily lives?”

    Why are you asking for my advice, isn’t that YOUR job?

      “By speaking with Jesus in prayer, listening to what he tells you in the Gospel and looking for him in those in need.”

      Apparently his Twitter-style is to post all the answers to his own questions.

        To be fair, it’s probably the policy-imposed style on the intern-priest that tweets away on his Vatican office cubicle.

  5. regondi says:

    Maybe he’ll tweet forgiveness for the children who tempted all of his priests to impure actions.

  6. penguinchris says:

    His tweets somehow remind me of another old guy who clearly doesn’t completely understand technology (despite being in Star Trek), Walter Koenig.

  7. peregrinus says:

    Can we tweet confessions to him?  Will he #follow the best confessors?

  8. patter says:

    It’ll be unusual for him, talking to a greater power that replies.

  9. Fef says:

    It’s nice to picture His Holiness curled up on a couch in the Basilica, tapping away at his flip phone while giggling, “O Meus Deus! Ut ‘sic temere!”

  10. Brainspore says:

    OK, I’ll ask: why isn’t he tweeting in Italian?

  11. cjporkchop says:

    Someone please hack his account, edit his profile to declare all of his tweets ex cathedra and infallible, and then post tons of pictures of Grumpy Cat.

  12. You gotta admit, though, @Pontifex is a pretty bad-ass account name. Aw, yeah.

    I wonder if @PontFX is still available?

     Other equally insightful Pontifexes are available: @Pontifex_it and @Pontifex_de will get you there.
