Pope Francis has been known to take a more modern approach to the papacy and that much was apparent even at his birthday celebration.
The Pope paid homage to his Argentinian roots with a flash mob of tango dancers who showed off their moves in St. Peter’s Square Tuesday.
Pope Francis was pictured smiling in the midst of the party. Later, he blew out candles on a cake presented to him from the audience.
In keeping with his emphasis on doing good and helping those less fortunate, the Pope also received a gift of 800 kilograms of chicken meat to give to the poor.
