It's not just about sending a message, but also about sharing it, so users can read the comments others leave as well. To write something one must use the hashtag #ThankYouFrancis, which is available in eight languages.

 

 

 

The idea came from an Argentine group known as 'Lindo Lio' which roughly translates to 'Nice Mess.' Its mission is to use to internet to promote culture and charity.

 


So, through this website they're inviting everyone, not just Catholics, to send a thank you message to Pope Francis, to mark this unforgettable year in history.
