Video: Pope Francis asks for prayers for the elderly

Pope Francis has asked the Catholic Church to pray in a special way for the elderly during the month of July

Pope Francis has asked the Catholic Church to pray in a special way for the elderly during the month of July.

The prayer intention follows requests to pray for families in June and for young people in May, and coincides with the celebration of the World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly on July 24.

“We cannot speak about family without talking about the importance of the elderly among us,” Pope Francis said in a video message released June 30.
