Grandparent’s Day

One of the themes of Pope Francis’ ministry has been a focus on those who are forgotten by the world. One group he has focused on is the elderly with the establishment of Grandparent’s Day on the 4th Sunday of July – the Sunday closest to the Feast of Sts. Joachim and Anne (the parents of Mary, the grandparents of Jesus).

I lived in the same town as all four of my grandparents and was known as the “apple of my grandfather’s eye” for the first five years of my life (the final five years of his). I wish we had more memories together!
