Strictly speaking the Pope doesn't have a typical Facebook profile, and hence you can't poke him, or invite him to play Pirates vs Ninjas.

Ultimately, her company wants to provide toys that will teach and inspire children about vocations."

I nominate Sebastian as "Best Rectory Dog," for faithfully serving the parish with his warmly-wagging welcome or his warning woof, as needed.
