With the Pope now on Twitter, it only makes sense that Jesus would join him in the divine digital age.

it's not hard to imagine the conversations.

@pontifex: Oh Jesus, hear our prayers!

@jesus: I'm busy. Go ask dad.

Freiberg Archbishop Robert Zollitsch, chairman of the German Bishop's Conference, is convinced that the son of God would be as social media obsessed as his mortal counterparts.

"Jesus would certainly today be on Facebook and Twitter," Zollitsch said to Ruhr Nachrichten newspaper. "He was always looking for people, and took unusual routes to do this."

"Fundamentally all media are suited to bring the word of God to the people," he said.

Jesus, were he to join in the social network, would undoubtedly have plenty of fans and followers.

Wonder if "hey @jesus man, can I get a retweet?!! i'm a huge fan!" would be a more direct approach than old-fashioned prayer?
