Find Pope Francis On Instagram


Well, not many people know, or at least they didn’t until published a feature that Pope Francis has an account on Instagram. It’s been kept low-key to date but the Catholic News Service has reported ‘after a trial run of several months, the Vatican Instagram is set to become one of’s main platforms for social media communication.’

Pope Francis is very popular on Twitter, take a look at @Pontifex and you’ll see that it’s currently sporting 3,062,959 followers. He appears to tweet daily, with posts like this:

‘Seeking happiness in material things is a sure way of being unhappy’.

Where we find hate and darkness, may we bring love and hope, in order to give a more human face to society’.

With the bigger push now towards Instagram, apparently followers will see ‘inspiring scenes that recall the presence of God in our lives: Sometimes we will find objects, or (signs) used as metaphors, or persons sharing with us the joy of being Christians,” according to José-Miguel Chavarría Múgica, a web producer for the Pontifical Council for Social Communications and the creator of the Papal Instagram account. He told The Huffington Post, “We are at a very early stage with Instagram. Now we are just exploring different options for all kinds of audiences.”
