Grandparents who have received the blessing to see their children’s children (cf. Ps 128:6) are entrusted with a great responsibility: to transmit their life experience, their family history, the history of a community, of a people; to share wisdom with simplicity, and faith itself—our most precious heritage! Happy are the families who have grandparents close by!
