Did you know

That this year Easter also falls on Papa's 79th birthday?

What a great grace for him!

Happy Early Birthday, Papa!

(Note: The cake is in the shape of a cake because Papa is famous as a lover of Mozart and classical music in general. He is also a devoted pianist. There was that episode when he was moving into the Vatican just after he was elected, when the movers couldn't fit his piano through the doors. So they had to take it apart, take the pieces in, and then put it back together again inside the Apostolic Palace!)
