The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement via Mormon Newsroom Tuesday, May 23:
Because of limitations incident to his age, President Monson is no longer attending meetings at the Church offices on a regular basis. He communicates and confers with his counselors on matters as needed.
President Monson is grateful that the work of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles continues without interruption. He appreciates the prayers and support of Church members.
President Monson, 89, attended the morning and evening sessions of the 187th Annual General Conference held in April, but remained at home for the afternoon session to conserve his energy. He was then hospitalized to receive treatment and fluid.
As you say your prayers this evening, please pray for President Monson that the peace of the Lord will be upon him and he will feel the love of the Saints.
