Pope Francis’ 77th birthday is December 17 (tomorrow!), and if you’d like to send him a birthday greeting, several groups are collecting letters and pictures to send to the pope on his birthday. The Vatican is also gathering video messages through Vine and Instagram that you can send through the Vatican web site Pope2you.
The one thing Pope Francis always asks for is prayers, so on his birthday The Papaboys Association is asking the faithful around the world to participate in a “prayer marathon” starting at midnight tonight and running until midnight tomorrow, during which there will be continuous prayer for Pope Francis.
If you’d prefer to send a card or letter, you can find the Holy Father’s mailing address and more ways to honor him on his birthday over at the Catholic News Service Blog.
