ST. JOSEPH PRAYER
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer, spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. To you God entrusted his only Son; in you Mary placed her trust; with you Christ became man.

POPE FRANCIS CELEBRATES THE FIRST-EVER WORLD DAY OF GRANDPARENTS AND ELDERLY JULY 25
"Their voice is precious because it sings the praises of God and safeguards the roots of peoples," he continued. "They remind us that old age is a gift and that grandparents are the link between generations, passing on the experience of life and faith to the young."
"You are needed in order to help build, in fraternity and social friendship, the world of tomorrow," the pope said in his special message for the upcoming day.

She taught me a lot about faith and told me stories about the saints."
