The prayer of grandparents and of the elderly is a great gift for the Church, it is a treasure!
How beautiful, however, is the encouragement an elderly person manages to pass on to a young person who is seeking the meaning of faith and of life! It is truly the mission of grandparents, the vocation of the elderly. The words of grandparents have special value for the young. And the young know it.
How I would like a Church that challenges the throw-away culture with the overflowing joy of a new embrace between young and old! This is what I ask of the Lord today, this embrace!
Pope Francis, March 11, 2015
Saints Timothy and Titus, pray for all grandparents and parents who strive to pass on the Faith to their beloved children!
