Pope Francis’ December Reflection: For the Elderly

12/04/2017 

This month, the Pope asks us to pray for the elderly. Those who have lived the longest have the most to give! Let us take care of them. They are our future.

“A people that does not take care of grandparents, that does not treat them well has no future! The elderly have wisdom. They are entrusted with a great responsibility: to transmit their life experience, their family history, the history of a community, of a people. 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.”
