9-year-old asks Pope Francis to bring brother home for Christmas

9-year-old Eliza Long sent Pope Francis an endearing message asking him to pray for her brother's safe arrival home from England before Christmas.

The youngster from Meath was sending a video clip wishing Pope Francis a happy birthday when she asked if he could pray for her and her family.

"Because the restrictions are gone a bit crazy, I would just like him to come back before Christmas." Eliza says.

"The more people who pray the bigger chance we have."
