In a new video, Pope Benedict XVI uses his Apple iPad 2 to visit a new Vatican website. To launch the Vatican’s new news portal, news.va, Pope Benedict XVI sent his first tweet, “Dear Friends, I just launched News.va Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI.”
“It’s a way to celebrate his 60th ordination anniversary and also to keep up to date with technology,” explains Rome Reports.
The Pope’s iPad 2 includes a short video created by Rome Reports which highlights the story of his priestly vocation and also includes an interview with the Pope’s brother Georg Ratzinger, who is also a priest.
