A person with disabilities is a person suffering from some acquired or congenital dysfunctions
in the development or in his mobility, mentality or sensual perception, which prevent his
normal functioning in the social, cultural and religious life. Although disability strongly
influences the life of a person with disabilities, it does not influence his dignity. A person with
disabilities is fully equipped with human features: he is the subject of his life and has unlimited
human rights. God gives life to the persons with disabilities and creates them as his children,
as his helpers and co-workers. When the people who suffer from disability accept it and give
testimony of suffering, they thus participate in the ecclesial apostolate in the church and in the
world. The apostolate of suffering is perceived as one of the greatest gifts for the church. At the
same time, people with disabilities receive the support from the Christian community. This
support concerns both everyday existence and the realisation of the vocation given by God.
The families of the people with disabilities should receive particular aid. This aid should
mainly be provided to the children with disabilities in the family.
