Pope Francis wants TWITTER followers, and here’s the deal you can’t pass up. If you sign up and follow the Pope during CATHOLIC WORLD YOUTH DAY (which is at the end of this month), the Pope will grant you “indulgences.” What’s an indulgence, you ask? It reduces your time in Purgatory and gets you into heaven faster.
Follow the Pope, get a fast track to heaven. Sounds simple enough. Now if you’re worried about the flip side of the coin- will you go to Hell if you DON’T follow the Pope? No. Apparently in the Catholic doctrine no one goes from Purgatory to Hell. Sooner or later you DO end up in heaven. Kind of like waiting in line for the latest iPhone. Eventually you WILL get there. In the meantime, I have every intention of following the Pope. I need all the help I can get… and that’s just to get to Purgatory.
