It apparently took divine intervention to get Elon Musk to end his nine-day hiatus from Twitter.

The world’s richest man on Friday night tweeted a photo of himself and four of his children meeting with Pope Francis. Although the Tesla chief is a self-described atheist, the family trip to Italy included a VIP stop in Vatican City.

“Honored to meet @Pontifex yesterday,” Musk tweeted.

Musk was accompanied by his sons with ex-wife Justine Wilson: Griffin, 18, and 16 year-old triplets Damian, Kai, and Saxon. Griffin’s twin brother, Xavier, who last month came out as transgender and now insists on being referred to as Vivian Jenna Wilson, wants “nothing to do” with Musk and was not on the trip.

The tweet from Musk, who has over 100 million Twitter followers, drew 200,000 likes within hours of being posted. But some fixated on what seemed to be an ill-fitting suit.

“Richest man the world needs a tailor for his pants,” tweeted Andrew Aziz. “Come on boss.”

Musk tweeted back some self-deprecating sartorial criticism in a reply to one Twitter user who had commented on the photo.

“My suit is tragic,” wrote Musk, who has two other children, X Æ A-Xii and Exa Dark Sideræl, who goes by Y, with Canadian singer Grimes.

Musk was baptized when he was young and attended Anglican Sunday School in South Africa.

“I agree with the principles that Jesus advocated,” Musk told Babylon Bee earlier this year. “There’s some great wisdom in the teachings of Jesus, and I agree with those teachings.”

Perhaps not coincidentally, Pope Francis tweeted hours later a message to his flock.

“Every time we open our hearts to Jesus, God’s blessing enters our lives,” the social-media savvy pontiff wrote.

Maye Musk, the grandmother of the boys who met the Pope with their famous dad, retweeted the photo with three smiley-face emojis.

In another tweet Friday, Musk paid tribute to a late YouTuber.

“Popular Minecraft YouTuber Technoblade with 12 Billion subscribers recently passed away at the age of 23 due to cancer, and this made [me] realize that cancer is [an] absurd piece of literal garbage and death, but also try to live your best life with people who know,” Musk wrote. “They could die the following day, and you would regret not doing things with them.”
