Cardinal’s Special Mass for People with Intellectual Disabilities

Almost a year ago, in one of my earliest posts when I started this blog, I posted about L’Arche, now a global movement and communities that create home for people with disabilities. This coming Sunday, the good Cardinal Rosales will hold a special mass for them. Here’s the rest of the online news from the CBCP site:

Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales will hold a special service on Sunday at the Santo Niño Parish in Tondo, Manila for anyone with mental disabilities, as well as their family members.

The event is part of the “sharing day” organized by the Faith and Light Community, a global ecumenical and spiritual movement among persons with intellectual disabilities, their families, and friends.

The Manila archdiocese said the mass will start at 1 p.m. and will have several priests as concelebrants.

The gathering will also introduce Faith and Light to the community, encouraging people to learn more about its mission to promote friendship and growth with and among persons with intellectual disabilities.

Faith and Light was founded by Jean Vanier and Marie Helene Matthieu following a pilgrimage in Lourdes, France, to meet the needs of families of persons with intellectual disability. There are now 1,500 such communities in 76 countries on five continents.”

Let us join the good Cardinal, in prayers and actions, in his intention…

  1. This is really nice, I hope I can participate in something like that because sometimes I think I do not have the patience with intellectual disabilities but I know that there are times, they can feel and understand us more than the normal do.

  2. may L’Arche: Foi et Lumière na rin ba sa Manila? Dito sa kabundukan, may isang chapter ng L’Arche na kasa-kasama ko sa parokya. isa ito sa mga favorite apostolates ko dito.ü

    God bless!

  3. Bro, ang ganda ng apostolate. Last Sunday pumunta din ako sa L’Arche community sa Cainta. It was so inspiring…
    God bless sa ministry mo…
