Pope Francis has deemed Sunday, July 25 the first World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly. In the future this day will be celebrated on the 4th Sunday of July each year.
The theme this year is “I am with you always” (cf. Mt 28:20), which conveys the closeness of God and the Church to the elderly and emphasizes the intergenerational closeness between the young and the elderly.
