Thanksgiving for Grandparents and Seniors

October 4, 2011

Our God of love, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name, we pause today to give thee thanks for the gift of seniors, grandparents, and all who are grandparents in the Faith. We thank thee for the love they have shared with us. We thank thee for memories to cherish. We thank thee today for the heritage they have bequeathed unto us; we thank thee for the example they have given us to follow: their perseverance in the face of hardship; their creativity and hard work; their commitment to their family; their commitment to their Parish; their commitment to their community; their commitment to their country and world; and, above all else, their commitment to thee, their God, the source of their life and the end of their hope. May we continue in what we have learned and firmly believed, knowing from whom we have learned it.

Lord, in thy mercy,
Hear our prayer.
