What may look like nothing more than an ordinary picture of a smiling Pope Francis is actually an amazing “secret” code that gives you the ability to connect with Pope Francis through Facebook Messenger. We tried it and it really works!
Here’s how to do it…
If you look at the picture of Pope Francis below, you will notice a series of dots and dashes circling around his image. What just looks like a stylized design element is actually a “Facebook Messenger Code”. This particular and unique messenger code allows you to connect with MissioBot, created by The Pontifical Mission Societies, that gives you the opportunity to have a “conversation” with Pope Francis and learn about the pope’s missions around the world.
DIRECTIONS: To scan this code using your Apple iOS or Android Device, you simply open your Facebook Messenger App, 1) select “People” on the bottom bar, and then 2) select “Scan Code”. Then simply line up the image of Pope Francis with the circle on the screen and you will be able to begin having a conversation with Pope Francis with MissioBot, learn about his mission, submit prayer requests and more!
