From our friends at USA TODAY:

Following Pope Francis’s Twitter feed may be good for your soul – both in this life and the next.

The spiritual leader of the Catholic Church plans to grant plenary indulgences by Twitter during World Youth Day 2013, which will be held July 23-28 in Brazil.

The indulgences, which can reduce the time a soul spends in purgatory, will be available to Francis’ nearly 2.7 million Twitter followers – if they tune in the world to World Youth Day broadcasts or take other spiritual actions.

It’s a way for the faithful to get the spiritual benefits of World Youth day even if they can’t be there, said Bob O’Gorman, a retired religion professor and author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Understanding Catholicism.

I’m getting right on that…..right now…..
