This Sunday, we celebrate the World Day for Grandparents and Elderly People. Today, I pray for the preparation for World Youth Day, and I give thanks for the witness of the elderly in my life.

The deep connection between the dreams of the elderly and the realization of young people’s desires is the strongest evidence that there is hope in the world. Today, I will keep in mind the gift of my baptism in which I was embraced by the Spirit of action and desire. Graciously keeping this in mind, I will try to demonstrate, when possible, caring actions towards someone who is elderly.

Ask forgiveness if you did not have an open, generous attitude, and plan to renew yourself in love for tomorrow. Aim for a specific resolution. Hail Mary…
