Gotta love it.
At St. Peter’s Basilica on Wednesday, church leaders and the faithful from around the world, including hundreds of LA area residents gathered to see Pope Benedict confer a special vestment, called a pallium, on newly appointed metropolitan archbishops, including LA Archbishop, Jose Gomez.
“He asked me where I was from and I said Los Angeles California, He opened his eyes really wide and said, ‘a very important archdiocese,’” according to Archbishop Jose Gomez.
Pope Benedict made history yesterday by becoming the first pope to tweet.
“I heard that, yeah,” says Archbishop Gomez. “I was about to talk to him about tweeting, because now I have a Facebook page, so I said maybe we should talk about it, but I didn’t have time.”
Speaking of the Archbishop’s Facebook page, he proudly posted a photo of himself with the pope shortly after the historic moment took place. (read the rest, with video)
