Mark Zuckerberg Meets With Pope Francis At Vatican Today, Gives Him A Facebook Drone

His meeting with Zuckerberg and Chan marks the fourth time he has met with a major tech head this year. On Jan. 15 he welcomed Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google parent company Alphabet, for a private meeting at the Vatican. A week later, he granted another private audience to Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, met with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Monday.

“And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.” John 17:11 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Using a title stolen from God, the “holy father” held a meeting today with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. It’s rather odd why a person like Pope Francis, who claims to be technologically ignorant, has such a strong desire to meet with all the world’s top technology people. What do you suppose he’s assembling? Hmm…

Vatican spokesman Greg Burke said one topic of discussion at the meeting was “how to use communication technologies to alleviate poverty, encourage a culture of encounter, and make a message of hope arrive, especially to those most in need.”

Zuckerberg gave the Pope a miniature model of Aquila, the solar-powered drone Facebook wants to use for beaming the internet to countries with no access.

The atmosphere appeared informal, with the chat taking place in the Santa Marta residence, the guest house in Vatican City where the pope lives.

His meeting with Zuckerberg and Chan marks the fourth time he has met with a major tech head this year.

On Jan. 15 he welcomed Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google parent company Alphabet, for a private meeting at the Vatican. A week later, he granted another private audience to Apple CEO Tim Cook.

The Pope has also made an effort to engage with big name celebrities who share topics of interest such as Leonardo DiCaprio, with whom he met Jan. 28 in an encounter that focused on issues related to climate change and the environment.

He has also started to make waves on social media, opening a Twitter account in 2012 and launching his own Instagram March 19, just weeks after his Feb. 26 meeting with the CEO and co-founder of Instagram, Kevin Systrom at the Vatican’s Apostolic Palace.

The reason behind Francis’ meeting with Zuckerberg, who co-founded Facebook with college roommates and fellow students at Harvard in 2004, could be prompted by Zuckerberg and Chan’s decision in 2015 to give away virtually all of their $45 billion in Facebook Inc. shares.

As of August 2016, Zuckerberg has an estimated net worth of $53.7 billion, making him one of the top 5 richest people in the world.

When Pope Francis notes, then, as he has frequently done, that according to some studies “80% of the world’s riches are in the hands of 17% of the population,” he’s referring to Zuckerberg.

However, after their daughter Maxina was born in late 2015, Zuckerberg and Chan announced Dec. 2, 2015, in an open letter to her that they would be donating 99 percent of their Facebook stock during their lives through the “Chan Zuckerberg Initiative,” aimed at advancing human potential and promoting equality “for all children in the next generation.”

In May, a report from Gizmodo dropped the equivalent of a social media bomb when several former Facebook employees said the company routinely suppressed conservative news in the social media giant’s “trending news” section.

The former Facebook news curators said they were sometimes instructed to insert stories into the “trending” section that had not earned enough attention to be a trending topic, or that they had the freedom to “blacklist” topics that they didn’t want to appear in the section, meaning that the section was not organically curated by the interests of other Facebook users, contrary to popular thought.

Although Facebook denied any allegations of bias and said they had launched an investigation into the issue, the episode has left many skeptical, and doubts remain. source

    Ya no, Satan is such a counterfeiter. In fact if one wanted to spend the time, one could think all of the tricks of Satan and notice that they are just the opposite reflection of what our and his GOD has already set in to motion but only for the redeemed by the BLOOD of the LAMB Who was slain for the sins of all who would come to HIM.

    Yeah! I know stunning huh…to discover that Satan knows that YAHWEY=-GOD IS his GOD too….That kind of behavior reminds me of King David and his bad son Absalom.

    Well as you will notice below, GOD’s intentions are that we would be ONE with HIM through HIS ONLY son YESHUA – CHRIST JESUS. But satan’s ploy is the counterfeit of GOD’s, One World Order through the satanic religion of the Jesuits of the Roman Catholic Church. But if that wasn’t bad enough, Satan has even given the title of the Jesuit Pope the title of holy father. —How noticeable!

    Father GOD-YAHWEY IS in control of all languages and the ability to even speak and HE knows all of it going on – all the time, GOD IS omnipresent. But you see Satan is not omnipresent so that is why he really needs technology of all kinds to bring to conclusion, his master plan to over throw GOD off of HIS Throne in Heaven and thereby take it from HIM. Oh! Look how this Jew Zuckerberg is helping Satan. Zuckerberg was certainly born for such a time as this!

    In fact, in today’s terms if we who see the Face of CHRIST through GOD’s Book (Bible) and then take it to our friends and
    our neighbors, then we could say we have the original Facebook and we are using it to spread the language of GOD!!

    GOD alone IS omnipresent!!! – GOD alone IS the lover or our souls!!!
    Through all of this, GOD alone IS our Savior!!!

    dc — daughter of CHRIST

    We have a starving and dyeing World of people who are well below poverty level and both of these men could set up ways to feed, cloth and teach the people, a better way to live but instead look what they are doing . The Vatican is tremendously wealthy and so is Zuckerberg but they do not give their money to help those who are here and are so very needy.

    Here you go Big Shot, Big $BILLIONAIRE$ Zukerberg & the Big Shot BILLIONAIRE Pope this is for YOU.

    James chapter 5:

    1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
    2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
    3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the LAST DAYS.
    4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
    5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
    6 Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.

    It would be fascinating to learn how they determine who is qualified to be high priest, from a tribe and genealogy perspective.

  • “APOSTLE PATRICIA WHO”??????? Who are you trying to FOOL …… FOOL!




  • Satan is using this technology to further his agenda.The pope is an instrument he’s using well. This pope fits the bibles description of the false prophet.He’ll use his power and authority to help further the agenda of the antichrist..This pope is a jesuit. As the word says, the false prophet comes in like a lamb, but he’s cunning and evil..He appears to be humble and kind,but he’s a ravenous wolf in sheep clothing….We haven’t even begun to see his evil yet.
