Vatican City, Aug 19, 2013 / 10:12 am
Pope Francis told his millions of followers on Twitter today that it is impossible for Christians to have a partial or lackluster commitment to the faith.
"We cannot be Christians part-time," he said Aug. 19 on the social networking site, where his popularity is growing fast. "If Christ is at the center of our lives, he is present in all that we do."
Pope Francis was named the world's most influential leader on Twitter just last month by the Switzerland-based public relation and communications firm Burson-Marsteller.
The pontiff made his comments today on his nine accounts, which are in Spanish, English, Italian, Portuguese, French, Latin, German, Polish and Arabic.
