Pope Francis Accidentally Endorses Saints On Twitter

The leader of the biggest church in the world may be on his way to picking up 1.8 million more followers – on Twitter.

Pope Francis took to the social media platform Sunday to give thanks to the Lord for the Church's new Saints, hash tagged, writing "They walked by faith and now we invoke their intercession." Unfortunately for his Holiness, hashtag-Saints is associated with a different kind of Saints – the New Orleans kind, prompting celebration in the French quarter and beyond.

"Saints plus-three, lock" tweeted Shoot-Your-Shot-Sports, responding to the Pontiff. New Orleans, of course, beat Jacksonville 13-to-6.
