2 December 2014. On Tuesday His Holiness Aram I addressed the 300 women attending the Christian education course organized annually by the Christian Education Department of the Catholicosate of Cilica.
He first referred to the International Day for Older Persons established by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1990, and said that because the elderly are an integral part of our communities, we cannot marginalize them. Every Armenian, irrespective of his or her age, has something to learn from the long experience of elderly persons.
After speaking of the importance of 2015, he paid tribute to the memory of one-and-a-half million martyrs, and said, “We should continue demanding from the World the restoration of what was stolen from us through the Genocide planned and executed by Ottoman Turkey, and we should press for the return of the confiscated Church and private properties.”
