VATICAN CITY — As the first anniversary of Pope Francis’ election draws near, many initiatives have kicked off to help celebrate that memorable day.

The Vatican Internet office has put together a beautiful picture-book online that captures vivid images and memorable quotes from Francis’ pontificate, and includes links to the original, complete texts.

World Youth Day Rio 2013 organizers created a video compiling highlights of the first Latin American pope’s first year.

They also are asking people to send their prayers, greetings and reflections via Facebook, Twitter or direct message using the hashtag #ThankYouFrancis. Messages are being posted on their site at www.graziefrancesco.com and delivered to Pope Francis in person.
