The leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI, has officially resigned…the first pope to step down since the Middle Ages. He said goodbye yesterday with his final words as pope being, “I am simply a pilgrim beginning the last leg of his pilgrimage.”
Oh and he deleted all his tweets.
The official Twitter account of the Pope @Pontifex no longer has any tweets, his avatar pic has been removed and his name has been replaced with Sede Vacante which means ‘the seat being vacant’ in Latin.
If i was the Pope i’d be bleak hey.
He should totally open up a new account and call it @ShitTheExPopeSays.
My apologies if you thought this was gonna be a serious Pope article..trying to keep it light hearted and what not hey. You should know by now though that i don’t write about religion. Gets people all worked up. And besides do we really need to go into that whole sex abuse scandal? Ya thought not.
Why did the Pope delete all his Tweets..well most likely so his successor can take up the account, but i like to imagine that the reason is because someone found out his last tweet was gonna be TGIF.
