Thought for the Day-Wednesday

‘The glory of the young is their strength; the grey hair of experience is the splendour of the old’ (Prov 20:29).

Today we remember that very special relationship between the young and the old. During the last year, younger people
were unable to visit older people due to the COVID-19 restrictions. It became painfully obvious the important
part that older people play in the lives of younger people. We had to become creative – using technology to
video chat or paying a visit to gardens so as to communicate through the door or window. In his address to
Italian bishops in 2013, Pope Francis states:
Hope and a future presuppose memory. The memory of our elderly people sustains us as we journey on.
The future of society, and precisely of Italian society, is rooted in the elderly and in the young: the latter,
because they have the strength and are of the age to carry history ahead; the former, because they are a living
memory. A people that does not take care of its elderly, its children and its youth has no future, because it
abuses both memory and promise.
The elderly and the youth are complementary and we can only thrive when that balance is considered.
