In his latest CathBlog, Most Rev Kevin Manning DD, Bishop Emeritus of Parramatta, comments on the challenges of old age.

"As someone who has recently retired, it was with newfound sympathy that I watched presentations appearing on the TV seeking a better deal for the aged. Many older people live with a silent, crippling fear," Bishop Kevin writes.

"The cost of food, medical care, electricity and housing are a constant worry to them and in many cases social security payments remain inadequate to sustain a decent standard of living."
