Every year Catholics try to answer the age old question: What should I do for Lent? Well, who better to pick for as your Lenten spiritual director than Pope Francis? He has some great ideas for you!
Well, I signed up for what seems like an impossible and regrettable task – name the top 24 Catholics to follow on Twitter (plus one Protestant). Impossible because there are so many great people to follow and I’m only naming 24. Regrettable because surely I’ll leave off some very important and influential people.
Have you experienced this? You’re out in public, someone finds out that you are Catholic, and you immediately get asked about Pope Francis.

Since the pontificates of Pope Paul VI and John Paul II, the Roman Catholic Church has been commissioned to engage and embrace the world with God's message of love once more with ‘new methods, new ardor and new expression.’ It has come to be phrased, 'the new evangelization.'
For FOCUS, this means meeting college students across the nation where they are and challenging them to examine the meaning and purpose of their lives. Through personal relationships and friendship, we offer college students the true peace and fulfillment they seek in the good news of Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Catholic faith, inviting them to answer His calling in their lives.
