CatholicPhilly.com offers monthly videos of Pope Francis’ prayer intentions, from the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network. Watch this month’s video here and pray for the intention below.
December 2017 intention: The elderly
That the elderly, sustained by families and Christian communities, may apply their wisdom and experience to spreading the faith and forming the new generations.
“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.” — Pope Francis
