Group Prepares Giant Birthday Card for Pope Francis
Dec. 6, 2013
Pope Francis' 77th birthday is Dec. 17 and the group Catholic to the Max will be shipping to Rome a giant birthday card for the occasion.
The Pope's birthday card was at the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) in Indianapolis at the end of November, where it was signed by thousands of Catholic youth.
The birthday card then returned to Steubenville, Ohio, hometown of Catholic to the Max and Franciscan University of Steubenville, where it has been made available for additional signings at various traveling locations.
The Pope's birthday card features several pages where signers can agree to a specific gift, such as "I prayed a Rosary for you," or "I served the poor on your behalf."
Digital signatures will be taken at at the web site up until the shipping date (Dec. 9). On the day the card is shipped to Rome, all digital signatures will be printed out and attached to the card.
The card features an oversize print of Pope Francis' special Marian devotion, "Mary, Undoer of Knots."
