Wish the Pope a Happy 80th This Weekend!

#Pontifex80 set to mark social media on Saturday

On Saturday, December 17, Pope Francis will turn 80 years old.

On his birthday, there will be a concelebrated mass in the Pauline Chapel where Pope Francis will preside with the cardinals resident in Rome.

The rest of the day will be a “normal” one for the Pope filled with commitments and appointments.  He will receive the President of the Republic of Malta, the Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, the Bishop of Chur, Switzerland, and the Community Nomadelfia.

Anyone wishing to send a greeting to the Holy Father, can do so by email at the following addresses:
