A very nice thought...

Rocco posts about the condition of the former nuncio to the States and suggests sending Archbishop Montalvo good wishes. He ends his posts on this note:
Again, it's also a good moment to think of the many retired or ill priests and others we know in our own midst. The worst pain of old age or health troubles is often that of loneliness, so if you know someone who's suffering in this way, keep in mind that the best medicine is often the simple reminder of another's caring.
Amen! It can be a real privilege to share time with retired priests and religious and I know from experience that it's very easy for a priest to end up in retirement far removed from family and/or parishioners.
