Today we celebrate Pope Francis' 80th Birthday. Pope Francis has done so much good for our world and with grateful hearts we wish him Happy Birthday. May Pope Francis continue to lead and guide us in the days ahead. Pope Francis embodies the virtues of this Advent Season in his daily living. A very humble and prayerful man he always seeks the good of others. We can learn so much from him. Let us remember that this Advent Season calls us to make our way toward the manger to once again celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day. Ad multos annos, Pope Francis!
