VIDEO: Father Jonathan Morris Says Taking Care of Elderly is Like Taking Care of Jesus

FrJonathan-2We live in a very youth-oriented culture and, as a result, senior citizens in our society often don’t receive the respect and attention they deserve.

In the video below, Father Jonathan Morris says that when we care for our parents or grandparents or others who are aging and lonely, we are actually taking care of Jesus Himself. It’s a lesson he learned watching his mother care for his grandmother, who suffered from dementia. And it’s a lesson he puts into practice by visiting elderly priests in nursing homes in the New York City area.
