From the Back Cover:

Also Available Blessings of Age A Pastoral Message on Growing Older Within the Faith Community The U.S. bishops invite older persons, their families, and their faith communities to develop new initiatives that encourage the participation of older persons in society and in the Church. Recognizing the social, economic, and spiritual implications of this rapidly growing age group, the bishops encourage a fresh perspective that embraces the gift of aging. Special words are offered for (1) older people themselves, (2) caregivers, (3) the parish faith community-pastors, staff, volunteers, and all parishioners, and (4) younger adults. The publication also includes reflection and discussion questions, current statistics, and helpful suggestions. English: No. 5-341, 32 pp; Spanish: No. 5-825, 36 pp. The Dignity of Older People and Their Mission in the Church and in the World Through their memory, experience, and vision, older people contribute invaluable gifts to the mission of the Church. The Pontifical Council for the Laity offers this new document to stimulate reflection and commitment throughout the Church regarding its senior members. The Council also encourages older people to continue their active participation and to derive spiritual enrichment from their essential role in the life of the ecclesial community. No. 5-344, 52 pp.
