World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly

World Day for Grandparents Pope Francis has set aside this day Sunday 25th July, in the Church’s life and liturgy as a one dedicated to prayer, reflection and thanksgiving for the life and gifts of grandparents and older people. The theme of this first such day ‘I am with you always’ (Matthew 28:20), reminds us of the closeness of young and old and of the huge role played by grandparents and the elderly in the lives of young people and others, particularly in handing on the faith in our families and communities.

 

Dear grandmother, dear grandfather,

the Lord’s closeness will grant to all,

 even the frailest among us,

the strength needed to embark on a new journey

 along the path of dreams,

 memory and prayer’.

Amen
