This month, the Pope speaks to us in the first person to transmit his prayer intention. He is one of the seniors who have never been "so numerous in the history of mankind. To the elderly, he says, society offers "many assistance plans, but few life projects," forgetting the great contribution they can still make.
They "are the bread that nourishes our lives, they are the hidden wisdom of a people," the Pope adds. The pontiff invites us to "celebrate them" in the "day dedicated to them": the World Day of Grandparents and the Elderly.
Sharing this video is a way of thanking them for all they are and do in our families.
