Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner have their own avatars - why shouldn't Pope Francis?!

In case you've been living under a rock, Pope Francis is visiting the United States - specifically, Washington, D.C., New York City and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - on September 22. In honor of the occasion, Swyft Media has launched Popemoji, a set of 52 images that can help you express your emotions with holy steez, Adweek reports.

The funny AF emojis are part of a larger initiative by Aleteia, a Catholic media company that shares an advisor with the Vatican's communications office, to expand its social media reach. The campaigns include hashtags like #PopeIsHope and #GoodIsWinning in addition to the emojis - of which our fave is def Pope Francis chowing down on a Philly cheesesteak.

This is only the first step in the social media takeover that's supposed to occur when the Pope touches down on American soil. Pope Francis has a "digital street team" of more than 60 professionals, as well as a "Pope is Hope social media listening center" HQ'ed in a homeless shelter, according to Fortune. After the visit, the digital team will deliver a report to the Catholic Church to try and improve the way it interacts with our generation.

If these candid Pope Francises are the first step in the Catholic Church becoming more social-media savvy, we're all ::praise hands::.
