Instagram will never be a complete catechism but it can help you in your walk with the Lord. Instagram is all about being beautiful and beauty is an important way to see God today. These Instagrammers are good for every Catholic to follow:
01. FRANCISCUS (Pope Francis)
The official account of Pope Francis. As he says, ""I want to walk with you along the way of God's mercy and tenderness."
02. VATICANSITE (Catholic pics around the world)
This gives you news about the Pope and other happenings in the Church. I was going to put at least 1 news agency on the list but this is so good, I saw no need to.
03. FRJASONSMITH (Fr Jason Smith, LC)
Father Jason is a priest in the New York metro area who seems like he used to be a professional photographer. His posts generally have two parts: a photograph from his life that looks like it could be in a tabletop book, and a reflection to help you grow spiritually that he writes in the description.
04. CATHOLIC_TEEN_POSTS (Roman Catholic Teen)
This teenager who remains anonymous posts the best done pictures, quotes and memes of any Catholic on Instagram.
05. JOHN_MONACO (John)
John gets the award for the young person who uses Instagram best. As he says: “Learning radically, loving unconditionally, living sacramentally.”
06. IMAGINESISTERS (Imagine Sisters Movement)
This group exists to promote vocations to inspire and promote vocations to Catholic women’s religious life. Their Instagram consistently posts positive pictures of Catholic sisters.
07. FRMATTHEWLC (Me, Fr Matthew P. Schneider, LC)
I think beauty is an important way to see God today. I post pictures of what I see that shows the beauty of God in this world. Usually that means a combination of religious things, nature, manmade beauty, and my life.
08. HAPPYNUN1 (Sr. Colleen Clair, FMA)
This nun posts some wonderful photos of her life ministering to kids. She often features her nun puppet. She shows how the old adage is true: “The true believer knows the one thing he can’t laugh at but will willingly laugh at anything else.”
09. SEMINARIAN_IVAN (Ivan Torres)
This seminarian does a good job in taking photos well and consistently, so he gets on this list.
10. CATHOLICDAILY (catholicdaily)
OK, this page is a second page that posts pictures and quotes. It’s quite good. Catholic daily stood out because they pay attention to beauty.
