Bishop thanks the elderly for their fidelity to the Catholic Church
/

Pope Francis has given us a new annual day to raise up grandparents and the elderly that will be celebrated, this year, on Sunday 25 July.

So, naturally, the focus of this ‘Catholic News’ podcast falls on the older generation – the “Intensive Prayer Units” of the Church as our guest Bishop David Oakley puts it! Bishop Oakley is the chair of the Bishops’ Committee for Marriage and Family Life.

We’re talking about the value of the elderly and how they play a huge role within the Body of Christ through their prayerful intercession.
