Alliance between the young and the old….
Throughout the world, many young people come to the Homes of the Little Sisters of the Poor to visit the elderly Residents. Their presence is always a source of joy and it gives the Residents the opportunity to share with them. We encourage these encounters and we would like our readers to reassure their children and grandchildren that they will be always welcomed to the nearest Home to visit the Residents. We feel inspired by Pope Francis and believe with him that the young can only sink roots into the soil of tradition through their relationships with the elderly.
