On December 17, Pope Francis turns 86 years old. An age he reaches after a complicated year in health for the Holy Father due to problems with his knee.

Although he himself acknowledges that he must "slow down" the pace of his travels, at the end of January he will make a week-long trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan, and in August he is expected to be in Lisbon for World Youth Day.
