The theme chosen by the Holy Father for the Day is "I am with you every day" (cf. Mt 28,20) and, as they emphasize in the informative note "wants to express the closeness of the Lord and the Church in the life of every elderly person, especially in this difficult time of pandemic".
"I am with you every day" is also a promise of closeness and hope that young and old can express to each other. In fact, not only grandchildren and young people are called to be present in the lives of the elderly, but the elderly and grandparents also have a mission of evangelization, proclamation, prayer and guiding young people to the faith.
A series of pastoral materials and tools prepared by the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life will be available on the website www.amorislaetitia.va in mid-June for the Day.
