How the Pope spent Palm Sunday

By +Tina Cruris

Pope Francis spent a traditional Palm Sunday spreading the gospel and building up Catholics worldwide for the coming Holy week, which is one of the most important in the Christian calendar. His Holiness also focused on sending a message to children worldwide to reassure them that they can trust the Catholic Church, and that pedophile priests are a thing of the past.

The Pope was also introduced to the concept of 'The Selfie'. For everyone over 35, 'a selfie is a type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone. Selfies are often associated with social networking, like Instagram. They are often casual, are typically taken either with a camera held at arm's length or in a mirror, and typically include either only the photographer or the photographer and as many people as can be in focus'.

"With 1.2 billion Catholics, this should beat the Ellen selfie"
"I thought a Palm Sunday Selfie was what guys did when they gave up sex for lent," said an anonymous Cardinal when we phoned the Vatican for a statement.

Since learning about the power of the camera phone, Pope Francis has been trying to take selfie pics with a whole bunch of people including Paris Hilton.

The rest of the Pope's day was pretty much uneventful. Dinner at 6, daily chat with Jesus at 8:30, then stream last week's Game of Thrones season premiere.
