The Facebook page and social media campaign "Eu Rezo Pelo Papa" (I pray for the Pope) is gaining international attention.

The objective is to give a public response to the Pope's first appeal after his election last March 13, that is, "Pray for me."

Hashtags are proposed in seven languages: In addition to #EuRezoPeloPapa and #IprayForthePope, there is Italian: #IoPregoPerIlPapa; Spanish: #YoRezoporElPapa; Hungarian: #Papaertimadkozok; French: #jepriepourlepape; German: #IchbetefurdenPapst.

The initiative was launched Sunday by the Shalom Catholic Community.
