Pope Francis shares his birthday breakfast with homeless
Vatican City: Three homeless men helped Pope Francis celebrate his 77th birthday, joining him for Mass and breakfast and presented him with a bouquet of sunflowers.
The Vatican said Francis also invited his household help to join him in a “family-like” atmosphere, and he spoke of them one by one during his homily. Francis, who is making history as one of the more informal and down-to-earth popes, struck a modest note as he reflected on people’s roles in the world. “Let the Lord write our history,” he said in his homily.
Francis had already blown out the candles on his birthday cake, presented to him on Saturday by children at the Vatican. But another present awaits him: a delegation from his favourite Argentine soccer team, San Lorenzo, will give him a replica of their championship trophy.
The pope also got an unexpected birthday gift on Tuesday, named Person of the Year by The Advocate, a US magazine for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities. The magazine cited the pope’s “Who am I to judge” comment about gays. Francis was also named Person of the Year by Time magazine last week.
