You can now get to know the Pope even without getting to Rome. Pope Francis has once again showed how ‘techy’ he is by joining Instagram. The 79-year-old Pope joined Instagram on Saturday and his handle, @Franciscus already boasts of over N1m followers in 24hrs.
“Instagram will help recount the papacy through images, to enable all those who wish to accompany and know more about Pope Francis’ pontificate to encounter his gestures of tenderness and mercy. We will choose photographs from the Photographic Service of L’Osservatore Romano, selecting certain details. In this way we can show those aspects of closeness and inclusion that Pope Francis lives every day.” he said.
His Instagram handle is “@Franciscus” and it looks like an interesting page to follow.
