17th Sunday in Ordinary Time
From Deacon Dick
World Day of Grandparents and Elderly
The Church has added the World Day of Grandparents and Elderly on the fourth Sunday of July beginning in 2021. It is most appropriate since this date is near the liturgical memorial of Saints Joachim and Anne, the grandparents of Jesus. Pope Francis has chosen this year’s theme as: “I am with you always” from the Gospel of Matthew. Let us honor our grandparents and elders whether living or deceased. We carry on their legacy in the ways in which we “live and move and have our being.”
A Child's Prayer for Grandparents and Elders
Dear God, please bless my grandparents and elders.
Thank you for the life they gave my parents
and for the life, they give to me.
For the ways they helped me and made me strong, I give thanks.
For the ways, they love me no matter what, I rejoice.
For the ways, they have paved the road
that leads me here, I am grateful.
Let them grow in wisdom and joy in life.
Let them find peace and rest from their work.
Let them be healed of every sickness and pain.
And let them see with their own eyes your glory
and the love of their children and grandchildren.
Bless them always until they come to rest in you.
