What’s a guy to do after leading the Kingdom of God?

Today Pope Benedict announced that he’s going to retire–here’s a CNN News Article on it.  This may not sound like a big deal, but he is the first Pope to do this in 600 years.  I hope he sets a precedence for whoever follows him.

But, what is a Pope to do after retiring from being the Vicar of Christ? (I’m not even sure one can retire from that) I for one hope that he keeps tweeting. I have really enjoyed some of his musings.  What I like about them is that they seem to be genuine and come from a place of real love.  Who knows if he actually wrote any of this stuff, but I hope he did. Here are a couple tweets bearing his name.



Unlike other religious leaders, especially in the Evangelical world, I have found the Popes tweets to be uplifting.

Now we may not agree on everything, I am an ELCA Lutheran, but I’m willing to guess there is a lot we do agree on.

I hope that the next Pope that’s chosen will use social media wisely and upliftingly* not only for Roman Catholics, but the world.
