17th December 2017 – Pope’s Advice to Children: Talk to Grandparents, Elderly, God Meeting Sick Little Ones on His Birthday, Francis Stresses ‘Preserving Children’s Joy’
“Don’t sadden children. When children see that there are problems at home, that the parents quarrel, they suffer. Don’t sadden the children. They must always grow with joy.”
The second thing you must do for children to grow well, the Pope said, make them talk with the grandparents: “the two extremes of life, because the grandparents have memory, have roots, and it will be the grandparents that give roots to the children.
“Please, do not let them become ‘uprooted’ children, without the memory of a people, without the memory of the faith, without the memory of so many beautiful things that have made history, without the memory of values. And who will help children to do this? The grandparents. They must talk with the grandparents, with the elderly.”
He also reminded the children how important it is to speak to their grandparents, the elderly, and God.
