Children who frequent a Vatican pediatric dispensary have given Pope Francis a birthday cake, a day before he turns 82.
Francis joked with them Sunday, saying he hoped “such a big cake doesn’t give indigestion” and blew out a candle atop the treat decorated in the Vatican’s yellow-and-white official colors.
He said children are good at teaching grown-ups to be humble, to better understand life and people.
Francis said: “The proud, the arrogant, can’t understand life because they’re incapable of lowering themselves.”
