Pope Francis offers reduced time in Purgatory for Catholics that follow him on Twitter


Salvation – or at least a shorter stay in Purgatory – might now be only a tweet away with news that Pope Francis is to offer “indulgences” – remissions for temporary punishment – to the faithful who follow him on the social media site.



Around 1.5 million are expected to flock to Rio de Janeiro to celebrate World Youth Day with the Argentine pontiff later this month.



But for those who can’t make it to Brazil, forgiveness may be available to contrite sinners who follow Francis’s progress via their TV screen or social networks.



The Sacred Apostolic Penitentiary, the Vatican court that rules on the forgiveness of sins, has said that indulgences may be given to those who follow the “rites and pious exercises” of the event on television, radio and through social media.



The Penitentiary said that Pope Francis' Twitter account, which has already gathered seven million followers, would be one such medium.



Vatican officials, noted however, that to obtain indulgences over the internet or otherwise, believers would first have to confess their sins, offer prayers and attend Mass.



“You can't obtain indulgences like getting a coffee from a vending machine,”



Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli, head of the pontifical council for social communication, told the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera .

“No matter how well one knows the story, it is always an emotional experience to stand at the Wittenberg door. There, on October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his Disputation of the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences, known as the 95 Theses.



By 1518, copies in other languages had been read throughout Europe, arousing rage against the Roman Catholic Church. Luther’s brave challenge at the risk of his life shook the church and world of his day. Oh, that it would happen again—not just to Catholicism (which hasn’t changed), but to Protestantism as well!”

Joh_10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
Joh_21:16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Listen , religions are always for themselves. Our is a One on One Relationship Forever more. It has nothing to do with others.
We serve others as our LORD Did and Does. But we follow Only HIM.

Our Spirit once Born of God ,Will only accept Truth . God living Words which FEED our Spirit man. It then grows and can mature to be just like our LORD JESUS .

Heb_5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
1Pe_2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

Nothing wrong with starting off in our new Spirit as a baby. We all start off that way. But Our Father wants us to grow and Mature.

Heb_5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

Indulgences - ANOTHER satanic LIE from the Roman Catholic Church. The Pope can't promise a "reduced time", in a NON EXISTENT purgatory just for listening to his propaganda. Why would any SENSIBLE person think that such foolishness hastens the transition for an UNCLEANSED person "in process" to a PERFECT person, and OUTTA THERE!! Purgatory is only a cruel JOKE on Catholics who find, when they're there, that it's really HELL and they're not ever getting out.
