The Pope has is­sued in­struc­tions telling nuns to use so­cial me­dia apps “with so­bri­ety and dis­cre­tion”.

The doc­u­ment, ti­tled Cor Orans, clar­i­fies rules gov­ern­ing monas­tic life that were is­sued in 2016.

It says the guid­ance is in­tended to safe­guard si­lence and rec­ol­lec­tion. The doc­u­ment men­tions “so­cial com­mu­ni­ca­tions” rather than spe­cific apps, but Catholic news­pa­per the Tablet said that this re­ferred to Face­book and Twit­ter among other ser­vices.
