Cardinal Collins offers a Blessing for Seniors:
We thank you for the gift of years granted in our time to so many men and women in the second half of life.
We thank you for their presence in our community; for their life experience, their courage and wisdom, their witness of faith.
We ask your blessing (✝) upon them as they live the many transitions that are part of maturing years.
Be with them, keep them in your care, grant them peace and enable them to become beacons of hope in our world.
