Sharing God’s Love with Seniors

The course that Sister Roberta Smith took in geriatric spirituality is helping senior citizens in her parish connect with God. “The people in the group range from their mid-70s to 90. A relationship with God becomes paramount to them,” she says. She begins her sessions with a centering prayer, an approach she says that is important in “developing a relationship with God that goes beyond Hail Marys and Our Fathers.” Seniors have more time and fewer distractions and a desire to find meaning to life that makes focusing on God more possible.
