Vatican City, May 3 - Families should say the
rosary together this month, Pope Francis tweeted Friday.
"It would be nice, in the month of May, to recite with all
the family the Holy Rosary. Prayer makes family life more
solid," the Argentine pontiff said on Twitter.
The number of Francis' Twitter followers has broken the six
million mark in various languages including Latin the Vatican
said Monday.
Francis's latest tweet was on Labour Day when he said his
thoughts went out to "all those who are unemployed, often as a
result of a self-centred mindset bent on profit at any cost".
Most of the followers were already connected to the
@pontifex tweet, launched by Pope Benedict in December 2012,
but the new pope has added almost two million followers
since his inauguration March 13.
The Pope's tweets are written in nine languages, including
the Latin feed, which has some 87,000 followers, according to
the most recent figures released by the Holy See.
Following the election to the papacy of Bueonos Aires
archbishop Jorge' Mario Bergoglio , Spanish has rapidly closed
in on English as the most read language for the Pope's tweets.
Over the past two weeks the number of faithful who have
signed up to the pope's Portuguese-language tweets has boomed
largely due to the fact that Francis will be in Rio de Janeiro
for World Youth Day in July.
