@Pontifex Project: Week 3

I missed last Tuesday.  Since today is one of the two days per week when the Roman Curia is open in the evening, let us have Tuesday today.

I suggested a project using Twitter HERE.  Let’s create a “stack” of tweets during the day.  Concentrate your effort on a day and single theme instead of various scatterings over days when they might not be noticed.

I often use Echofon to tweet, a plugin for Firefox.  I also use Tweetdeck.  Makes it easier.

If some of you want to offer other language versions, post below.

Here is the collective tweet for FRIDAY, 18 January 2013.  Copy. Paste. Repost. Retweet.

@Pontifex Holy Father, thank you for the example of giving Holy Communion to people who kneel #catholic

UPDATE LATIN:

@Pontifex_ln Gratias Tibi agimus ob Sanctae Eucharistiae distribuendae genuaflectentibus exemplum! #catholic

    I don’t have an account, so I thought I might render this into Latin for others.

    @Pontifex_ln
    Gratias tibi agimus, Tua Sanctitas, ob Sanctae Eucharistiae distribuendae hominibus genuaflectentibus exemplum!
    #catholic

    [My I suggest it without the “hominibus”? Extra letters to be eliminated? Thus: @Pontifex_ln Gratias Tibi agimus ob Sanctae Eucharistiae distribuendae genuaflectentibus exemplum! #catholic]

    Tweet in English has been sent.

    Tweet sent (English) and remembered hashtag!

    I am one of the not-much-into-it-tweeters. I tweeted in English. Then searched on #catholic but only found Fr. Z’s tweet nestled among other non @pontifex tweets. Am I searching incorrectly?

    Is it wrong to wonder how many others are tweeting? Should I keep my eyes lowered in silent prayer? Is this sort of like peeking to see if others are receiving on the tongue instead of in the hand? Am I being scrupulous?

    Maybe I’ll go check out Eye of the Tiber…

    You need to click the link that says “All” to get the full list. By default, the search is limited to “Top” tweets, whatever they are.

  6. OrthodoxChick says:

    Tweet in Latin has been sent to the Holy Father’s Latin account (@BenedictusPPXVI). Thank you for the translation, Father.

  7. majuscule says:

    Thank you, Will D!

    The mobile app doesn’t seem to have the “all” option.

    But I persisted! I logged on from my desktop and discovered many more options. And saw some of Fr. Z’s other readers’ tweets!

    Tweeted.
    #catholic is really generic hashtag though.

  9. PatriciusOenus says:

    OrthodoxChick

    I don’t think that is his Latin account, but rather @Pontifex_ln

    I think @BenedictusPPXVI is an impostor.

  10. acardnal says:

    Fr. Z, I would suggest a hashtag of “wdtprs” , for example.

  11. OrthodoxChick says:

    PatriciusOenus,
    I’ll double check that. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
