World Day For Grandparents and Elderly: Pope Francis has established  the celebration of the World Day for Grandparents and Elderly. It will be on the fourth Sunday of July (25th July) near the liturgical memorial of Saints Joachim and Anne, the grandparents of Jesus. A Plenary Indulgence will be granted under the usual conditions: sacramental confession, Eucharistic communion and prayer, according to the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff during the solemn celebration he will preside over in St. Peter’s Basilica or at the various functions that will be held throughout the world.

The Plenary Indulgence will also be granted on this same day to the faithful who devote adequate time to actually or virtually visiting their elderly brothers and sisters in need or in difficulty (such as the sick, the abandoned, the disabled and other similar cases),” the note reads.
