That the elderly, sustained by families and Christian communities, may apply their wisdom and experience to spreading the faith and forming the new generations.
“A people that does not take care of grandparents, that does not treat them well has no future,” said Pope Francis in his December prayer video. This month he is asking that we pray for the elderly who can share with us their life experience and history. “Let us keep in mind our elders, so that sustained by families and institutions, may with their wisdom and experience collaborate in the education of new generations.”
