Happy Birthday to Pope Francis who turns 78 today! Last year, the humble pontiff invited four homeless people to share in his birthday celebration at the Vatican. What surprises are in store this year? Perhaps thousands of tango dancers!
The Catholic News Agency has reported that several thousand tango dancers plan to perform in honor of the Pope’s birthday in Rome’s Risorgimento Square. ¡Qué copado!

Pope Francis joined Twitter in February 2012 and to date, His Holiness has more than 4.8 million people following him. (@Pontifex) He tweets at least once a day in nine languages! As for that other social network, Facebook — he’s declined to join despite the fact it’s the largest of the social networks and has the greatest reach. Why? Seems like Facebook is much more ripe for profanity and ugly troll comments. Find out more at CBS.
