Social Justice: Social justice in an ageing society

 |  17 August 2016

This year’s Australian Catholic Social Justice Council statement focuses on mercy, love and an aging society. Since researchers predict by 2050 the population of Australians 65 and older will at least double, Australian Bishops are asking Catholics to reflect on how they care for the elderly.

Reflection questions for students:

How old will you be in 2050? 

How do you want to be cared for when you are older? 

How can you apply the Golden Rule to showing love and mercy for the elderly in your community?
