    Great to hear about Fr Bateman’s new book! Congratulations!! And I agree that the word ‘retired’ can have connotations of sitting round not doing anything very much. However the retired people I know, myself included, are often very busy with volunteering, family and other caring activities, participating in community events, supporting friends, actively looking after our own health and wellbeing to maintain our self sufficiency, and a myriad of other worthwhile activities. Hopefully we also take some time to ‘be’ a thoughtful and reflective presence in the world. Maybe we can either reclaim the word ‘retired’ or come up with a new one??
