It’s what you’ve been praying for – you can now send the Pope a text.
The Vatican has launched a service in Italy that allows people to send text message of support to Pope Benedict XVI.
As the church reels from yet another pedophile scandal, the text service was introduced to allow catholics to show their support without being present at Saint Peter’s Square.
A German priest on Saturday admitted he had beaten children at a Catholic orphanage, and is also being investigated on charges ofÂ pedophilia.
The number to send your text to is +39 335 18 63 091. Pope Benedict says he will be chillin’ at the mall until 6pm, but then he has to do some homework, so text before then if possible.
