Three homeless men, one of them carrying his dog, helped Pope Francis celebrate his 77th birthday Tuesday, joining him for Mass and breakfast and presenting him with a bouquet of sunflowers.
12月17日, 教皇弗朗西斯迎来了自己的77岁生日。庆祝活动从早上开始——教皇在梵蒂冈邀请三名罗马流浪(其中一人还携带一只狗)共进早餐,一同做弥撒,流浪汉赠送给教皇一束向日葵。
 
The men live on the street in the Rome neighborhood just outside the Vatican’s walls and were invited by the Holy See official in charge of alms-giving to attend the Mass, which Francis celebrates daily at the hotel where he lives on Vatican City grounds.
这几位流浪汉经常游荡于罗马附近,就在梵蒂冈城墙外。负责分发救济品的教廷人员邀请他们去梵蒂冈城的宾馆,参加教皇每日举行的弥撒。
 
The Vatican said Francis also invited his household help to join him in a “family-like” atmosphere, and he spoke of them one by one during his homily.
罗马教廷表示,教皇弗朗西斯也邀请了住所的工作人员,营造出一种家庭聚餐的氛围,教皇还在布道中谈到了在场的每一个人。
 
Francis had already blown out the candles on his birthday cake, presented to him on Saturday by children at the Vatican. But another present awaits him: A delegation from his favorite Argentine soccer team, San Lorenzo, will give him a replica of their championship trophy.
梵蒂冈的孩子们送上了蛋糕,教皇吹灭了蜡烛。来自阿根廷的圣洛伦索足球队带来了他们在锦标赛的奖杯复制品,圣洛伦索队是教皇最喜欢的球队。
 
The pope also got an unexpected birthday gift on Tuesday, named Person of the Year by The Advocate, a US magazine for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities. The magazine cited the pope’s “Who am I to judge” comment about gays. Francis was also named Person of the Year by Time magazine last week.
教皇也收到了一份意外的礼物,那就是被《提倡者》这本面向同性恋、双性恋和变性群体的杂志评选为“年度人物”。教皇曾就同性恋话题表示“我算老几?没资格评判”,被杂志引用。上周,教皇弗朗西斯也被美国的《时代》杂志评选为“年度人物”。
