Non-Catholics for the Pope

I would like to thank my fellow NCP members for helping us help Pope Francis reach his goal of 10 million Twitter followers! Below is a news article on the subject:

“Hallelujah! Pope Francis Rejoices After Reaching 10M Twitter followers (Mirror)

As leader of the worldwide Catholic Church, Pope Francis already has something in the region of 1.2 billion followers. But that didn’t stop the technologically-savvy pontiff rejoicing Sunday morning when he hit 10 million followers on Twitter – a relatively conservative figure in comparison. Times Live “Dear followers, I understand there are now over 10 million of you!” Francis wrote on his account, @Pontifex. “I thank you with all my heart and ask you to continue praying for me.” Reuters The first non-European pope in 1,300 years has tripled the number of followers of the @pontifex handles since succeeding Benedict XVI in March, according to the Vatican, which announced Francis had reached 10 million after adding together the followers of all his accounts. This would make the pontiff more popular than The New York Times and just behind rapper Kanye West, according to websites.

“The account was officially opened on Dec. 12, 2012 in times of Pope Benedict XVI, who at the end of his term had over 3 million followers. After the resignation of German Joseph Ratzinger to the chief office of the Catholic Church, the account @Pontifex was suspended until March 17 this year, after the assumption of Argentinian Jorge Mario Bergoglio.”

The next meeting of the NCP membership committee will be on November 1st (All Saints Day). Time and location TBD. For information on joining the group or RSVPing on behalf of your immortal soul, please contact Siobhan, whose newest administrative tasks on behalf of this group will be compensated for after her death.
