Nine year old Eliza Long from Dunboyne, Co Meath, Ireland, has sent a special birthday message to Pope Francis for his 84th birthday tomorrow, Thursday 17 December.

Eliza hasĀ been sending a birthday video greeting to Pope Francis for the past couple of years and she sings him a wonderful rendition of the Happy Birthday song this year too.
But this year she also has a very important prayer request for him because she really wants someone from her family to be home for Christmas.
Thank you Eliza! Happy Christmas. We hope your prayer is answered too even with all the restrictions!

Watch the video message here.

Happy Birthday Pope Francis!
