The "first selfie" of a grinning Pope Francis spread on social media on Monday, adding to his immense "pappeal."
The "selfie" was posted by an Instagram account claiming to be the official IG of the Holy See with more than 140,000 followers. It was picked up by several media outlets.
Unfortunately, it was all a big lie.
As first reported by Mashable, the purported selfie is actually a screen grab from a video chat the pope did with young people in September 2014.
But don't give up hope on a papal selfie just yet...Pope Francis is a pro at posing for them.
