Imagining what the Pope's first 10 Instagram posts could look like

The Pope has joined Instagram.

His first post on Saturday morning, from his individual account (separate from the official Vatican account), was captioned:

Pray for me
Rezad por mí
Pregate per me
صلوا من أجلي
Priez pour moi
Módlcie się za mnie
Rezem por mim
Betet für mich
Orate pro me


The sincere post signals a first for the Papacy, and shows that a standard operating procedure has begun for the Roman Catholic Church's social media.

He does not compose his own tweets at present, and is unlikely to be posting unsupervised and candid selfies on Instagram any time soon - it's going to all be very brand managed.

But what if it wasn't?!

Join us on our voyage as we imagine what it would be like if the Pope were like every other damn Instagram user in the world.
