A wonderful friend of mine, Lauri, a person who I know often prays for me when I start acting crazy and just in general, has a BEAUTIFUL sister named Heather who has Down Syndrome. As a family (including Heather of course) they attended my graduation party last year from the Catechetical Institute at St Paul Seminary. I sat by her and we had a delightful chat. Christ’s love glows from her.
When I saw this article, Lauri, I thought of you and your family, and your dedication to your sister as well as to your Catholic Faith. How we can think that such precious people are somehow not worth our time and effort is beyond my “pay grade.” Way beyond it.
