For the Elderly: December Prayer Intention of Pope Francis

We are all invited to join with Pope Francis and his worldwide prayer network in praying this month's intention: For the Elderly

Pope Francis' Intentions for 2017: English (PDF); en español

Post your prayer in the Baggot Street Chapel

Text of the December video:

'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.'
