Pope celebrates birthday by giving sleeping bags to homeless

Pope Francis passes by a balloon reading "Happy Birthday" as he greets the crowd during his general audience at St Peter''''s square.

Pope Francis marked his 78th birthday yesterday by distributing 400 sleeping bags with the Papal emblem to homeless people in Rome yesterday afternoon.

A group of volunteers were in charged of delivering the sleeping bags among the City’s homeless, to whom they asked to pray for the Pope.

Yesterday, the Pope also invited four homeless to lunch. They had been introduced by Konrad Krajewski, Francis’ alms distributor.

Last year, on his first birthday as pontiff, Francis celebrated by having breakfast with four homeless people that lived around the Vatican.
