The pope's words are very important to reflect on if we are to care and protect the dlderly life.
Pope Francis' recent twitte on elderly found the elderly life at the centre of reflection by listners and Sant'Egidio presenters. Words of the pope said: "I invite you to go out and look for those elderly person who most alone, at home or in residences where they are guests where they are guests. Let's make sure, no one feels alone. Visiting the elderly who live alone is work of mercy in our time".
