Fr Walter in his homily said “the in today’s world which driven by commercial values people are valued on the basis of usefulness. As long as they are useful they are wanted and respected. Once people become unproductive they are dumped as useless. Almighty God while giving Ten Commandments to the people of Israel through Moses instructed them to respect the parents. Jesus son of God when he became human being said that neglecting parents is not the will of God”. Further in his homily Fr Walter said “that there is plenty to learn from the wisdom of elderly and respecting elderly should be a part of our culture”.
