Holy Father receives 20,000 text messages of support

After Pope Benedict XVI’s general audience Wednesday, he received 20,000 text messages.

The inspirational message influx was part of an initiative by “In His Image,” a television program on Italy’s RAI television network. The initiative was begun on May 16 to show support for the Pope.

The texts were printed for the Holy Father — 2,300 pages! — along with a reflection written by the president of the Italian Bishops’ Conference, Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco.

Update: The number to send messages has been listed as (+39) 335-18-63-091.
