Serving you the (nearly) daily Pope Francis news

Beginning a New Journey, on Instagram

This morning at St. Peter’s Basilica, Pope Francis celebrated Mass, gave a homily, and conferred two episcopal ordinations (full text in Italian, full video).

As well, he made an array of appointments.

And today Pope Francis opened an Instagram account (see: www.instagram.com/franciscus/) and announced it by sending a tweet:

I am beginning a new journey, on Instagram, to walk with you along the path of mercy and the tenderness of God. (link)

and sent his first three posts to Instagram:

Pray for me (link 1)

I want to walk with you along the way of God’s Mercy and tenderness. (link 3, video link)

And that’s the Pope Francis news for the day!
