Pope Francis Has No Events, Even A Mass, Scheduled For His 80th Birthday On December 17, 2016. (UPDATE)

The calendar has since been updated.


Interesting, but maybe not surprising.

Pope Francis, per his sometime desire to remain modest, probably does not want to make a big deal about his 80th birthday. It is no longer that special. 7 of the last 8 popes also did so!

Yes, he holds at least one Mass, typically early in the morning, every day. So that will probably take place per the routine.

It makes sense for him to downplay this milestone. IF he was still a cardinal, as opposed to pope, he would, on that day, cease to be a papal elector.

Let’s wait and see.
