Vatican City: In his first tweet of 2015, Pope Francis talked about innocent people and children who were suffering in this world and asked God to grant everyone peace.

The Pope wrote on the micro-blogging site Twitter which read as: "How many innocent people and children suffer in the world. Lord, grant us your peace."

Before this he had last tweeted yesterday, the last day of 2014, which simply said, "Lord, thank you."

The Pope's account was created two years ago during the time of Pope Benedict XVI.

It is available in several languages and reached 17 million followers in December.
