Pope Francis has officially joined Instagram! Check out the photos below!

Early Saturday morning, the Pope tweeted on his official @Pontifex Twitter account, “I am beginning a new journey, on Instagram, to walk with you along the path of mercy and the tenderness of God.” His new Instagram page, with the username @franciscus, became verified around the same time. And then came the first post.12826175_232096657140023_1722011915_n

Along with a photo of himself kneeling in prayer, the Pope wrote, “Pray for me.” The caption included the same phrase in eight other languages. The Pope’s profile picture is the same snapshot, and his bio reads, “‘I want to walk with you along the way of God’s mercy and tenderness.’ (Official Account. Copyright L’Osservatore Romano.)”
