Pope Francis asks prayers on his first anniversary



Vatican City, 13 March 2014: In a post on the social media on Thursday, on the occasion of the first anniversary of his Pontificate, Pope Francis asked all to pray for him. The Pontiff wrote on his Twitter account @pontifex: “Please pray for me.” This is probably the shortest tweet he published on his twitter handle.

Pope Francis has always asked people to pray for him, and it has become his typical style to end his meetings or audiences always with a request to pray for him.

The Pope has now close to 11 million followers on his Twitter account @Pontifex. And the re-tweeting of Pope’s message is reported to be reaching at least 60 million people. The Pope’s English-language handle alone has over 3 million followers. The papal tweets are published in nine languages on the micro-blogging website.
