Papal tweet in Latin

Papal tweet; image of St. Peter's dome detail The first Papal tweet in Latin went out today, Sunday 20 January 2013. Thousands of people are subscribing. Try something new and fresh at only 140 characters or less. See how brief Latin expression can be.

Latin classes especially in religious schools may want to treat themselves once a week to this Latin surprise. Students can play with the brief phrase to make it fuller, or express it in other ways, or change the words around, or make the statement plural or singular or future or any time they want.

You may sign up for the Papal tweet and pass the link to anyone interested. Here is the link:

Here is a video of the Pope launching the Latin Twitter account.

Tuus adventus in paginam publicam Summi Pontificis Benedicti XVI breviloquentis optatissimus est.
