Spirituality is comforting in the aging process
The Catholic Register, December 5, 2015 - Coming to terms with aging through spiritual discernment is critical to sound decision making in the second half of life, said Sister Mary Rose Marrin.
“If we are going to make good decisions we have to be in a frame of mind that is peaceful and free,” said Marrin, a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph Toronto.
While Marrin, who specializes in ministering to the elderly, is specifically referring to decisions surrounding “end-of-life issues,” she said the principle holds true for all life’s decisions. But in a society fixated on youth, there is a lot of anxiety about entering our golden years, she said, leaving many seniors spiritually restless.
