Pope Francis pointed to the family, noting that right now there are many strong tensions between generations.
Often when we speak of generations, parents and children come to mind, but grandparents are frequently left out, Francis observed.
“Grandparents are the great forgotten of this time,” he said, and encouraged the youth to speak to their grandparents, who are sources of wisdom due to the memory they have of life, tensions, conflicts and faith.
“Always when you meet your grandparents you find a surprise. They are patient, they know how to listen…don’t forget grandparents, understand?”
