This past Christmas Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg surprised his followers and the public at large when he published a heartfelt Christmas message to his Facebook page.

The enlightening post received over 300,000 likes.

Zuckerberg said:

Within seven minutes on Christmas Day the Palo Alto based Facebook commenter received a response to his question.

“No,” Zuckerberg replied. “I was raised Jewish, and then I went through a period where I questioned things, but now I believe religion is very important.”

The statement took many by surprise, as for years, Zuckerberg self-identified as an atheist.

Earlier this year, the Harvard graduate and his wife, Priscilla Chan, shared their experience of meeting Pope Francis at the Vatican in Italy. Of the meeting, Zuckerberg said, “Priscilla and I had the honor of meeting Pope Francis at the Vatican. We told him how much we admire his message of mercy and tenderness, and how he’s found new ways to communicate with people of every faith around the world.”

“It was a meeting we’ll never forget. You can feel his warmth and kindness, and how deeply he cares about helping people.”

Chan also publicly shared her feelings about the meeting. She said, “I feel inspired and blessed to continue making our impact at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.”
