Today is Pope Francis' birthday

Today, 17th December is Pope Francis' birthday.

On behalf of the 1.2 billion catholic faithfuls all over the world, i wish to convey my heartfelt birthday wishes to the vicar of Christ on earth.

May we pray for him and his good intentions for the church.

God bless you the people's pope; the pope who knows how to pope.

May the Grace of God be with you now and always, Amen.

Please pause a moment and drop a prayer for the pope.
