Pope Francis will mark his 80th birthday on Saturday with a morning Mass with his cardinals and an otherwise “normal” day of back-to-back meetings and audiences.
The Mass will take place in the Paoline Chapel of the Apostolic
Palace, where Francis spent his first minutes in prayer after being
elected in 2013.
The Pope then has a series of audiences, including with the
president of Malta and the head of the Vatican’s office for bishops,
