The Body of Christ: A Place of Welcome for People with Disabilities by Fr. John Chryssvagis. Every Parish should have a copy of this booklet. It deals with attitudes that are appropriately Christlike. It touches on some details, but since each person’s and each Parish’s situation is different, Fr. John doesn’t attempt to suggest a standard pattern of response. He writes of utilization of spiritual gifts in service to persons with disability AND receiving the gifts of person with disability in service to the Church. Even passive omission of the latter is unacceptable; it would mean ”the Church is denied its reality.” (1) Fr. John also emphasizes focusing on the “person” rather than the “disability.” 2002. 16 pp.
