Pope Francis’ 82nd Birthday Cake

I hope we don’t have indigestion with such a big cake!”

In words of thanks to those gathered, the Holy Father said that if Our Lady had lived in Rome she would have surely taken Jesus to this dispensary.

He noted that “working with children is not easy but it teaches us a lot.”

“It teaches me, that in order to understand the reality of life, you have to lower yourself, as we lower ourselves to kiss a child. They teach us this. The proud, the proud cannot understand life, because they are not able to lower themselves.”

“All of us,” Pope Francis continued, “professionals, organisers, nuns, all – give many things to children but they give us this announcement, this teaching: to lower oneself. Lower yourself, be humble and in this way you will learn to understand life and people. And all of you have this ability to lower yourselves. Thank you so much for this, thank you so much!”
