Annunciation of the Lord, March 25

 Annunciation of the Lord, March 25

Isaiah 7:10-14; 8:10 / Hebrews 10:4-10 / Luke 1:26-38  

Albeiro Vargas from Columbia became a “father” when he was only a nine-year-old. He was touched by the poor old people around his town. He formed an association of children called Guardian Angels to improve societal treatment of the elderly and create a model for strong intergenerational relations in Colombia through a program that brings children more closely and more regularly into the lives of older people. Beyond the direct engagement of the inter-generational participants, Albeiro pushes for reforms in legislation and national policy that will shift the current societal attitude towards the elderly.
