I was talking with one of my sister’s earlier this evening.  After an hour and a half on the phone discussing, among other things, the Holy Father’s decision to renounce the office of Universal Pastor next week, she shared her take on the reason why he’s stepping down.

“You see,” she said “I know why he’s doing this.  Twitter.”

“I’m sorry,” I replied, “but, um… what?”

I know why he’s doing this.  Twitter.

“It’s Twitter.  He’s probably in the Vatican right now saying to his cardinals ‘I tried it.  It’s dumb.  I survived the @*$&-ing Nazi’s and now I have to read this drivel?  I’m done.”

Hey, there’s a certain logic to it.  Either way, I’m still sorry to see you go @pontifex.  #popegone
