Little Sisters with Big Grins

Deacon Greg Kandra recently highlighted a beautiful video of a Our Lady of the Stars, a small community of young men in France with Down Syndrome.

Also in France one will find The Little Sisters, Disciples of the Lamb, a monastic community:

The Institute of the Little Sisters Disciples of the Lamb, a contemplative vocation, offer young girls with Downs the possibilty of realising their religious vocation. This realisation is made possible only by the support of sisters without this disability, who have responded to a special call to consecrate themselves to God with their disabled sisters to form one community with them.

This video is not as beautiful as the other, but what crafty joy!

    I can’t stop weeping.

    My heart is so full right now. My little niece has the gift of DS and this gives me hope. Hope for a world that welcomes them not a world that wants them out of the way.

    It was so beautiful to see them treated as full human beings that it hurts.
