A Tweet Heard 'Round the World - BXVI and His iPad

Hello, Coffee Talkers!

Pope Benedict XVI launched the new Vatican online news portal, news.va, and announced the launch with a Tweet from his iPad!

Seriously, I was just having doubts about the benefits of Twitter (having just recently joined myself), but being among the first to see BXVI's first Tweet made it all worthwhile: “Dear Friends, I just launched News.va Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI”.

Here's a fun video of the Tweeting and iPad action. It's interesting even if you don't understand Italian, I promise!

Lastly, in completely unrelated news, there are terrible wild fires raging in Alamos, New Mexico. The fire is of particular concern because of the proximity to a nuclear lab, so let's please pray for the safety of all who are being evacuated, those who are fighting the fire, and that the fire will be extinguished as soon as possible.

Peace and all good,
