World Day of Grandparents & The Elderly

The Pope has declared July 23, 2023 world day of grandparents & the elderly. He announced the release of a decree, published by the Apostolic Penitentiary, granting a Plenary Indulgence on the occasion of this the Third World Day honouring and praying for grandparents & elderly. All those who attend Mass this weekend praying or any liturgical event for our grandparents, who bring their grandparents or the elderly to Mass, or those who visit the elderly and sick, as well as for those who are unable to leave their homes, will receive the Indulgence. The Plenary Indulgence may also be applied for the repose of souls in Purgatory.

(An Indulgence granted by the Church is the remission before God of the temporal punishment due to sin whose guilt has already been forgiven.)
