A photo I took in Feb. of a 92 year-old French Jesuit priest and theologian who was an "expert" at Vatican II. An amazing character, he is still writing and publishing books in his 90s!. The model of how I would like to grow old... with an open mind, a childlike sense of wonder, a willingness to keep learning and a deep love of God that sustains and gives life. I consider it an honour to be able to call him a friend.
