In January 2021, Pope Francis announced the World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly, to be celebrated each year on the fourth Sunday of July, coinciding with the feasts of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s parents and Jesus’ grandparents, Sts. Joachim and Anne.This year’s World Day is today, July 25, and the theme, “I am with you always,” is taken from Matthew’s Gospel. In his message for the first World Day of Grandparents and the Elderly, Pope Francis writes:“…this is the promise the Lord made to his disciples before he ascended into heaven.
