The Pope has joined Instagram

His first image is exactly what you'd expect

If you're an online believer, then you already know that The Pope is not averse to technology.

He can be found on Twitter with his official account @Pontifex - which already has close to 9 million followers - as well as a Pope Francis public page on Facebook, with close to 2 million likes.

Earlier today though, the Pope announced via one of his social mediums that he would be joining yet another.

Sure enough, if you headed over to Instagram and followed @Franciscus, you'd find Pope Francis' first Instagram post.
