CatholicMom.com just posted my column about Autism Sunday, a reflection on “I Am Sam.” Check it out!
Pope Benedict XVI wrote to the co-founders of Autism Sunday, Ivan and Charika Corea, invoking his apostolic blessing on the autism community. For more information, click here.
Lord, today we remember families touched by these chronic illnesses.
In their isolation, may they experience Your presence.
In their frustration, may they know Your peace.
In their sorrow, may they feel Your joy.
Calm their anger with Your infinite love.
Together with our brothers and sisters all over the world, we thank you for those you have entrusted to us, for as long as they are with us. Teach us to measure each other not by our challenges, but by our blessings.
In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen!
