Pope's monthly video: for the elderly

As every month, Pope Francis invites the faithful to join in his prayer for a specific intention. In the month of June, the Pope's monthly video invites us to make the elderly more present.

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.
