The Pope was in Washington, DC this week as part of a historic six-day trip to the U.S. His highly anticipated visit has been actively discussed on social media, where users have debated his positions on climate change and economic inequality. The Pope held a closed-door meeting with President Obama on Wednesday, and addressed a joint session of Congress on Thursday morning.

Facebook went down at about 12:30 p.m. ET, two hours after the Pope spoke at the Capitol. Service was restored as of about 12:45 p.m. ET.

Here are some of the best tweets about the Pope breaking the Internet.
