Words of Pope Francis

The memory of our elders is the support to move forward along the path.

A hope and a future presuppose memory.

 
printable version

A hope and a future presuppose memory. The memory of our elders is the support to move forward along the path. The future of society, and specifically of Italian society, is rooted in the elderly and young people: the latter, because they have the strength and are of the age to be able to bring history forward, and the former, because they are the living memory. A people that does not take care of its elderly and children and youth has no future, because it abuses both its memory and its promise.
(September 12, 2013 Catholics’ Social Week)
