Latest Message from the Holy Father

"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."- Pope Francis (December 2017)
