A collection of personal stories in which grandparents and elders from around the world share from their “reservoirs of wisdom” to inspire and guide.

In Sharing the Wisdom of Time, Pope Francis offers a simple but profound solution: To see where we should go, we must understand where we’ve been. The experience and wisdom of those who have come before us can provide the guidance we need to approach tomorrow free of fear and needless anxiety. Sharing the Wisdom of Time is an international effort that collects the stories of elders from over 30 countries carved from lifetimes of experience. From a blind basket weaver in Kenya to an acclaimed filmmaker in Hollywood, from a survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp to a centenarian midwife in Guatemala, every story is a testament to the power of faith, perseverance, human resilience, and love.

This book is a curiosity cabinet, meaning that it contains photos of many objects I have gathered from around the world along the years. They are disparate, quirky, kitsch, or simply of sentimental value, some being luxurious, but all having a story to tell and a place to remember. The book will speak to many people, who can identify with at least a number of these artefacts.
