On Wednesday, December 18th, Pope Francis is celebrating his 78th birthday! To celebrate the occasion, the Bishop of Rome has given the American people an incredible gift. 

News has broken that the Holy Father played a pivotal role in brokering a new era of peace and stability between the United States and Cuba.

President Obama personally thanked Francis "for showing us how to pursue the world as it should be not as it is."

Let's wish Pope Francis a strong and exciting year to come as the universal shepherd of the Catholic Church.

With our brothers and sisters throughout the world, we bring our voices together as one as we proclaim: viva il Papa! Long live the Pope!
