Some of the text

To grow old is to age.
To become an Elder is to choose to to be vintage....

You are that graced Elder we celebrate for:

You really live your life to the full and seek to be involved
                              in life beyond yourself.

You hear the suffering of this world cry out and
 give justice your prayerful attention.

You advocate for dreams only dawning...

You live the Good News of Life.....
