News Release from Mormon Newsroom

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement 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 was hospitalized in early April, where he received treatments and fluids. In past statements, the Church has stated President Monson has been feeling the “effects of advancing age” and has notably shortened his addresses in General Conference in recent years. President Monson was born in 1927, making him 89 years old currently.
