//Pope Francis’ prayer intention for December: ‘For the elderly’

Pope Francis on Monday released a video message accompanying his prayer intention for the month of December, which this month is “For the elderly.”

“Let us keep in mind our elders, so that sustained by families and institutions, may with their wisdom and experience collaborate in the education of new generations.”

It has become the custom of Pope Francis to release a video message detailing his new prayer intention each month.

The monthly videos are promoted by the “Worldwide Prayer Network of the Apostleship of Prayer,” an organisation dedicated to spreading the Pope’s prayer intentions concerning the challenges facing humanity.

The full text of Pope Francis’ message is as follows:

“A people that does not take care of grandparents, that does not treat them well, has no future.

“The elderly have wisdom.

“They are entrusted with a great responsibility: to transmit their life experience, their family history, the history of a community, of a people.

“Let us keep in mind our elders, so that sustained by families and institutions, may with their wisdom and experience collaborate in the education of new generations.”

ENDS
