The Pope has now joined the millions of selfie takers on Instagram.
earlier today, Pope Francis joined the social media site by posting a photo of himself praying.
The photo was captioned with “pray for me” in nine different languages.
The Holy Father also marked the event by posting a second picture with Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom.
Within just an hour of joining the site, the handle franciscus gained over one hundred thousand followers.
The Pope has been a big name on Instagram even before he joined.
During his visit to the United States last year, the site published more than 21 million posts from over 5 million people.
