In a special way, old age is a time of grace, in which the Lord renews his call to us. He calls us to safeguard and transmit the faith. He calls us to pray, especially to intercede. He calls us to be close to those in need…. The elderly, and grandparents, have the ability to understand the most difficult of situations: a great ability! And when they pray for these situations, their prayer is strong; it is powerful!
