Now that the initial furor around the Holy Father’s Twitter account has died down a little, I want to pass along a suggestion made by a reader who left me a constructive voicemail.
We could designate a day to post prayerful, helpful tweets to the Holy Father (@Pontifex). If we concentrate our efforts on a certain day with the same language, we will create a “stack” of good tweets, instead of scatterings over days when they might not be noticed.
For example, a theme for our @Pontifex Day could be “Summorum Pontificum”.
@Pontifex Holy Father, thank you for #SummorumPontificum.
Otherwise, on other days.
@Pontifex Holy Father, I offered my Sunday Communion for your intention.
@Pontifex Holy Father, I prayed my #Rosary for you today.
Get the idea?
We should all use the same language.
Perhaps we should designate Tuesdays as the day for this? I suggest Tuesdays because the Roman Curia is open for business in the evening.
On Monday, the theme for the Tuesday could be announced.
I’ll keep the combox open, but I’ve turned on moderation.
