Pope Benedict XVI has posted his first Twitter message in Latin
Irapuato     20/01/2013 10:01
"Orare semper, iustitiam factitare, amare probitatem, humiles Secum ambulare".

In his first Latin tweet the Pope
asks his followers to pray always for the reunification of the Christian churches - "Orare semper, iustitiam factitare, amare probitatem, humiles Secum ambulare".

The Orthodox Church split with Rome 10 centuries ago and then the Protestants followed in the time of the Reformation in the 16th century.

As the Pope launched his account last month, a spokesman said the pontiff would "reach out to everyone".

So far, the Pope's accounts @Pontifex - which mean "pontiff" or "builder of bridges" - are only following each other.
