Pope Francis surprises an ambassador by wishing him a Happy Birthday
Fernando Sanchez is one of the youngest ambassadors to the Vatican, and that's why he was one of the leading figures in the meeting between the Pope and the Diplomatic Corps.
Among the 180 ambassadors that were present, Pope Francis remembered that it was the birthday of the young Costa Rican ambassador.
Happy Birthday. Thank you, Your Holiness. May we know how many? 40. They send young ambassadors now. Congratulations: So young and already one... ;
Fernando Sanchez gave his credentials as Costa Rican ambassador to the Vatican in December 2010. Back then, his children made Benedict XVI smile many times.
