Pia Matthews takes us on a Scriptural journey to show how rich the Bible is in reflecting on disability, be this physical or mental. She shows us that Jesus is more concerned with what the purpose of the disability is rather than why the person is living with a disability. And leads us to see how God’s work is fully revealed in anyone who lives with a disability.
Anna Fraine shows us how both the Catholic Church and our local parishes can become more inclusive and welcoming to everyone in our communities. She offers helpful reflections, questions and tools to model dignity among all peoples but especially towards those living with a disability.
