Vatican collecting your video greetings for the pope

Just found out that the Vatican is collecting video greetings through Vine and Instagram for both Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI! I’m super excited about this, especially since Pope Francis’s birthday is coming up on December 18. I’ll most likely be using the snail mail route seeing as I’m not super creative with videos, but who knows. Maybe I’ll get a creative hair and give it try.

Will you be participating? Leave a comment below. Oh, and be sure to tell your friends and family about this great opportunity. God bless!

VATICAN CITY — Since email is so last decade, how would you like to send the pope video Christmas greetings and prayers? popevideo msg

Now you can with Vine and Instagram sharing platforms through the Vatican’s Pope2You website.

Record and post your video using Vine or Instagram and insert the link onto this form, adding any additional notes and prayers in the dialogue box.

If you want, you can also send the links directly from your device via email to adding any written words you want in the email.

The only downside is the videos they collect won’t be presented to Pope Francis until sometime after Christmas.

But there is always the old-fashioned way of sending an actual card or note by air/surface mail to:

Pope Francis

Domus Sanctae Marthae

00120 Vatican City State

and don’t forget:

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

Mater Ecclesiae monastery

00120 Vatican City State
