Older people are not “leftovers” to be discarded; rather, they continue to be precious nourishment for families, young people and communities, Pope Francis said in the homily he wrote for the Mass marking the first World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly.

And the ultimate purpose of our existence is so to live as to be happy with Him in heaven. Read more at http://www.texascatholic.com/2021/04/15/father-dankasa-remembering-our-purpose-on-earth/

Father Dankasa: Remembering our Purpose on Earth I remember growing up and learning catechism using the question-and-answer format of the simple catechism of the Catholic Church, which was mainly memorization. I still remember very well many of the questions and answers because they have stayed in my head.
