Title: VOCATION OF ELDER PEOPLE OF WISDOM THE: A RETREAT WITH BISHOP SOENS
This is one of several retreats given by Bishop Soens for senior citizens throughout the diocese. Bishop describes the senior years as a vocation. It is part of oneís lifetime vocation to worship God and work to sanctify Godís people. Our baptismal call, an unearned free gift from God, is a sharing of Godís own life. Our call to continue the work of Jesus Christ is to ìteach all nationsî in our vocational call to be priest, profit and king. With wisdom Bishop states ìWe are where we are because God called us to this time and place to live out our Catholic faith. We remain a confirmed people with the Holy Spirit quietly working in our lives.î Longevity is a blessing that provides us with an ingredient we donít have in our younger years - time. A time to grow in holiness and appreciation of Jesus Christ the person. Bishop ends with some practical pointer on death and dying. (A)
