Grandfather’s table   versione testuale
An entire homily dedicated to the elderly, pronounced by Pope Francis on November 19th, 2013, at Santa Marta

In this homily at Santa Marta, Pope Francis—starting from the Old Testament passage where the great piety of an elderly man, Eliezer, is described—focuses on the values of loyalty and coherence in old age, which are fundamental for bequeathing to young the most precious gift in life: the vital strength of faith.
