First World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly, 2021: “I am with you always”

Holy Father Pope Francis has chosen Sunday 25th July 2021 as the “First World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly,” instituting a yearly Church-wide celebration on the fourth Sunday of July for the elderly. The theme chosen by the Holy Father for this World Day is “I am with you always” (cf. Mt 28:20) which is a way of expressing the closeness of the Lord and the Church to every older person, especially in these challenging pandemic times.
