Wrong but Funny #DearPopeFrancis Instagrams
Pope Francis‘ visit in the Philippines gathered 6-7 million Filipinos in one place for his mass last Sunday. People waited patiently and got drenched under the rain just to get a glimpse of the well-loved pontiff. It was a historic event, which got people talking about their experiences — and yes, most especially on social media. We checked out the trending hashtags online and saw some posts that really stood out from the other entries in a funny and entertaining way.
We filtered these photos by keying in #DearPopeFrancis and #PopePH — both official hashtags during the Pope’s visit here in the country.
Editor’s Note: These photos were posted in public settings for everyone to see. We’ve embedded the posts here so the respective owners may opt to take it down or set it to private anytime they want.
Here are Instagram posts that used the Pope’s official hashtag during times when they really didn’t have to include them. Enjoy.
The least one can do is to make sure the photo is focused before uploading it.
Siguro nag pray rin si Pope na magkaroon ng signal . Thank you #PopeTSYM #PopePH A photo posted by Joshua Dado (@awusoj) on
So what do you owe the Pope exactly?

We’re not sure if this is even real or just photoshopped.
So why is #DearPopeFrancis included again?

Guilty of any of these? Tell us about it on the comment section below and let’s all have a good laugh! But more importantly, not only did the community of Instagrammers have fun during the momentous event. They were greatly blessed as well with the presence of the Pope and with what he said.
