Today, a brief paragraph to remind all of us that despite retirement, one does not withdraw from active service as a disciple of the Lord Jesus:
190. The whole people of God should be grateful to retired bishops, who as pastors have given up their lives to the service of the Kingdom, being disciples and missionaries. We welcome them with kindness, and we draw on their vast apostolic experience, which can still produce many fruits. They still have strong connections to the dioceses that were entrusted to them, to which they are united by their charity and their prayer.
