Happy Birthday Pope Francis

Pope celebrates 87th birthday, asks Christians to celebrate Jesus’ birth 
As well-wishes pour in for his birthday, Pope Francis encourages Christians to prepare our hearts to celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas. By Devin Watkins Pope Francis turned 87 years old on Sunday, 17 December. As he often does ahead of Christmas, the Pope spent a few moments with children and families assisted by the Santa Marta Dispensary, who presented him with a birthday cake and sang ‘Happy Birthday’. The Santa Marta Dispensary has provided medical assistance to children and families in need for over 90 years, and is based just a stone’s throw away from the Pope’s residence inside the Vatican. It was established in 1922 by Pope Pius XI. Source
