Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
July 25, 2021



If you receive a text message or an e-mail from Fr. Roberto Cid asking for a favor, do not respond. It is a hoax!

Seventeenth Week in Ordinary Time

Elderly and Grandparents’ Day

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

St. Joachim and St. Ann are the parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Their liturgical feast is celebrated every year on July 26th. Their names do not appear in the Bible, we know them through tradition. They were the grandparents of the Lord.

Just as we celebrate Father’s Day or Mother’s Day over here, in many countries with Catholic roots, including Argentina, Grandparents’ Day is celebrated on that day. Pope Francis has expanded that tradition to the universal Church. He has designated the Sunday that is closest to July 26 as a yearly day of prayer for our grandparents and for the elderly.

Prayer for Day of the elderly and grandparents

I thank You, Lord, for the comfort of Your presence:
even in times of loneliness, You are my hope and my confidence,
You have been my rock and my fortress since my youth!
I thank You for having given me a family
and for having blessed me with a long life.

I thank You for moments of joy and difficulty,
for the dreams that have already come true in my life and for
those that are still ahead of me.

I thank You for this time of renewed fruitfulness to which You
call me.

Increase, O Lord, my faith,
make me a channel of your peace,
teach me to embrace those who suffer more than me,
to never stop dreaming
and to tell of your wonders to new generations.

Protect and guide Pope Francis and the Church,
that the light of the Gospel might reach the ends of the earth.

Send Your Spirit, O Lord, to renew the world,
that the storm of the pandemic might be calmed,
the poor consoled and wars ended.

Sustain me in weakness
and help me to live life to the full
in each moment that You give me,
in the certainty that you are with me every day,
even until the end of the age.

The question of the use of vaccines, in general, is often at the center of controversy in the forum of public opinion. In recent months, this Congregation has received several requests for guidance regarding the use of vaccines against the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes Covid-19, which, in the course of research and production, employed cell lines drawn from tissue obtained from two abortions that occurred in the last century.
