What Seniors Need

You’re old. You think your life is over. What can the Church say to give you hope and new vision to break out into things you’ve never done before?
In this program, Fr. Mike talks to Fr. Leonard Pasquale, IMC, who has a special interest in the elderly in his parish. Fr. Leonard is a Consolata Missionary and worked in Argentina and Columbia. There he found that people had great respect for their elders.  They spoke of the Sacrament of the Sick which is no longer just for the dying, but for the ill, as well. Fr. Leonard explained all the programs in his parish that involve the elderly, including service projects for the younger members with the elderly.
They also discuss nursing homes, making of wills, and the importance of the Advanced Health Care Directives.
