Pope tweets

Pope Benedict XVI sent his first tweet today, apparently using the iPad Twitter app to do so. He used the occasion to both praise Jesus and announce the Vatican’s rockin’ new web site:

Dear Friends, I just launched Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI

What say you? (And hold off on the Anthony Weiner humor, okay? This is a café.) (Also, please do not confuse papal tweets with @oldmansearch.)

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
