Vatican City: Taking care of the ill and the weak will bring Catholics close to Jesus Christ, Pope Francis said on Thursday.

“The one who helps the sick and needy touches the flesh of Christ, alive and present in our midst,” he wrote on his Twitter account.

In a tweet a day earlier, Francis urged the Catholic Church to be “ever more attentive and caring” towards the weak in society.

Francis now has over 22 million followers on his @Pontifex account, published in nine languages, il Sismografo website reported.

A meeting between Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and members of the European Parliament (EP) over the social network’s use of personal data will be webstreamed, the Parliament’s President said on Monday.

The meeting, scheduled to take place on Tuesday, would be streamed over the Internet after Zuckerberg agreed to it, EP President Antonio Tajani said on Twitter.

“I am glad to announce that he has accepted this new request. Great news for EU citizens… I thank him for the respect shown towards EP,” Tajani said.

The meeting would take place a month-and-a-half after Zuckerberg testified before the US Congress over an alleged massive personal data leak to UK-based firm Cambridge Analytica.

“We are convinced that the millions of Europeans affected by the Cambridge Analytica scandal deserve a full and thorough explanation from Facebook’s top manager, just as was the case for US citizens,” Tajani penned in a letter to Zuckerberg in April. (IANS)
