Pope Francis the Coolest Pope Ever?
Pope Francis recently joined some young people in taking a selfie, and the pics have gone viral.
From The Atlantic:
Pope Francis made history on Wednesday and became the first head of the Catholic Church in history to pose for a selfie, doing so with a bunch of Italian teens from the Italian Diocese of Piacenza and Bobbio. Those 500 teens were treated to a special audience with Pope Francis. It is unconfirmed if he had anything to say about twerking during the conversation.
From the Telegraph:
The Pope told the young crowd he wanted to meet with them “for selfish reasons … because you have in your heart a promise of hope.”
“You are bearers of hope. You, in fact, live in the present, but are looking at the future. You are the protagonists of the future, artisans of the future,” the pope told the pilgrims.
“Make the future with beauty, with goodness and truth,” he said. “Have courage. Go forward. Make noise.”
