birthday vorfeiern brings bad luck? The Pontiff seems to think it is not such a wisdom: Pope Francis has his current 82. Birthday committed in advance.

On Sunday he got from the children of a Vatican charity a great pie. Then he was blowing the candle on the white-and-yellow pastries. “I also hope that there are no digestive disorders in this large cake,” he said, according to Vatican media platform, Vatican news.

On the birthday itself to stand for the Argentine is the everyday business of a Pope: to receive visitors in audience. Including a international Commission for the abolition of the death penalty, a Delegation of the Japanese bishops and the Director of the Unesco, the French Audrey Azoulay.

congratulations reached the Pope from all over the world. The Italian President, Sergio Mattarella sent you with the style of the Latin: “Ad multos annus” wish him many more years.
