This past weekend, we celebrated the World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly in the United States, a remembrance instituted by Pope Francis three years ago. This year’s theme was: “His mercy is from age to age.” Pope Francis reminds us that grandparents and the elderly “are the link between generations, passing on the experience of life and faith to the young.” Commit to making time to remember your grandparents and the elderly, both living and deceased. Follow the path they so unselfishly charted. Always be grateful for their wisdom, gained over their many years, and the role models they have been for you. Most importantly, ensure that your grandparents and elderly friends know the love you have for them and pray that God may bestow his enduring peace upon them.
