The wisdom of Emilie Weil

In an article in The Criterion Online Edition put out by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, you can read about "supercentenarian" Emilie Weil, who celebrated her 110th birthday in January 2010.

110 years old, she lived during the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. 20 U.S. presidents served during her lifetime. Her husband died 67 years ago after only 11 years of marriage, leaving her to raise their seven children. She later returned to work as a nurse.

Today, Mrs. Weil enjoys spending time with her family, painting, reading, and talking about one of her favorite topics: her relationship with God and her love of the Church. And those who know her agree that Emelies has retained her zest for life throughout 11 decades.

What advice does she offer us? "Just say your prayers, and do the best you can.” When asked how to find happiness in life, Mrs. Weil said, "Be faithful to God".

What about you? What advice would you like to pass on to generations to come?
