Aging Gracefully, Living Fruitfully

$ 24.99
We go through three major phases of growth and discipleship during our lives. Early on in life, we struggle to get our lives together. During our generative years, we struggle to give our lives away. Later on in life, we struggle to give our deaths away. This journey, the final stage of our lives, is what mystics call “the dark night of the spirit”. How do we do this so that our aging and death becomes our final gift to our loved ones? How do we age and die gracefully and fruitfully?

Very informative information and most helpful. Thank you

Could not understand the audio

We failed to activate the ‘closed captions’ on a Windows laptop. Maybe it was our ignorance but we feared it lacked the text required to support captioning.

Most of the men in our group could not understand Fr. Ron, as hearing loss affects almost all our guys. I would hope captioning was incuded since the content was directed toward older people.

I’m giving this three stars on the belief closed cations are embedded and we just failed to show them. Perhaps DVDs for older people might be understandable if instructions for activating captions was displayed in some readable format prior to the initiation of the content.

If there are no provisions for captioning, I am forced to rate this DVD one star, as it would fail to meet minimm standards for its purported audience.


We ordered these videos twice through our parish faith formation program and both times the videos would not play. We had other people try with no success. We tested our machine with other videos and the machine works fine. Can you help? Are we doing something wrong? Is there something we should be doing that we don't know about? Can you send us new videos that you test as playable? Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi Charles, We are very sorry about the troubles your parish had. I apologize for the length of time that has passed since you posted this as well. We will send replacements if it isn't too late, or issue a refund if it is. -Ray Taylor
