Pope Turns to Lent Prayers in First Post-resignation Tweet

Feb 13, 2013

Vatican City - Pope Benedict XVI focused on Lenten prayers in his first Twitter message since announcing his resignation earlier this week.

"During the season of Lent, which begins today, we renew our commitment to the path of conversion, making more room for God in our lives," the pontiff tweeted Wednesday.

This is only about his 30th tweet since joining Twitter last year.
