Pope Francis' Tweets

The Pope meets the Holy Spirit

Continuing on a custom started by Pope Emeritus Benedict, Pope Francis has been sharing tweets in various languages, including Latin, which also gives him the opportunity to create longer phrases. Here are some of the recent tweets, each of which is a meditation in itself:
 - Christians are ready to proclaim the Gospel because they can’t hide the joy that comes from knowing Christ.
 - Are you angry with someone? Pray for that person. That is what Christian love is.
 - Let the Church always be a place of mercy and hope, where everyone is welcomed, loved and forgiven.
 - How many kinds of moral and material poverty we face today as a result of denying God and putting so many idols in his place!
 - We must not be afraid of solidarity; rather let us make all we have and are available to God.
 - Consumerism has accustomed us to waste. But throwing food away is like stealing it from the poor and hungry.
 - Care of creation is not just something God spoke of at the dawn of history: he entrusts it to each of us as part of his plan.
 - Christ leads us to go out from ourselves more and more, to give ourselves and to serve others.
 - The world tells us to seek success, power and money; God tells us to seek humility, service and love.
