Recently, we had the great privilege of celebrating the annual Mass for People with Disabilities. While we all face challenges in our lives, the vast majority of us, by the grace of God, are able to go about our daily routines without the hardships that so many of our brothers and sisters with intellectual and developmental disabilities face. Their courage, their strength, and often, their pure joy in the face of adversity should be a lesson for all of us. We thank the caregivers whose patience, perseverance and endless love allow those under their care, as much as possible, to lead lives as God intended. May we pray for those who enrich our lives and our communities by showing us how to overcome obstacles with authentic joy and determination.
