"Families who lovingly accept the difficult trial of a child with special needs are greatly to be admired. They render the Church and society an invaluable witness of faithfulness to the gift of life. In these situations, the family can discover, together with the Christian community new approaches, new ways of acting, a different way of understanding and identifying with others, by welcoming and caring for the mystery of the frailty of human life."
(Amoris Laetitia 47)
This week as a family share what life may be like for someone you may know or in your family/school/parish who has a disability or learning difficulty and what you as a family can do to make a difference. You might like to reflect upon how as parents we enable our children to see a person’s abilities rather than disabilities?
