At the end of today’s general audience, Pope Francis turned his thoughts to those who suffer from Alzheimer’s.
“Today is the 23rd World Alzheimer’s Day, which this year focuses on the theme ‘Remember me,'” he noted.
“I invite all those present to ‘remember’ with Mary’s solicitude and the merciful Jesus’ tenderness all those who are affected by this disease and their families, to have them feel our closeness,” the Pope said. “We also pray for persons who are at the side of the sick, able to take up their needs, including the most imperceptible, because they are seen with eyes full of love.”
