A Religious Order for Women with Down syndrome!
Tip of the hat to our old friend in London, Graham Morehouse, for this bit of good news…

Whilst the murderous gate keepers of the secular asylum hunt them down to cull them in their mothers' womb, a group of nuns in France have founded the Little Sisters Disciples of the Lamb, a contemplative order made up of women with Down syndrome.   This community was founded in 1985, canonically recognized as a public association by the Archbishop of Tours in 1990.

“Guided by the wisdom of St Benedict, we teach our little disabled sisters the manual labour necessary for their development.  We live poverty in putting ourselves at their disposal.  With them, we share the work of everyday life.  The office, adoration and the praying of the rosary are adapted to their rhythm and their capacities.  In a spirit of silence, our prayer feeds every day on the Eucharist and on the meditation of the Gospel.”

It is moments like this one realises just how lovely the world would be if it was totally and genuinely Catholic.  Instead of Europe spending billions hunting down and culling the imperfect and inconvenient, whilst worshiping faggotry, not to mention every other depravity known to man, we would have a world where everyone was cherished, even the least of Christ's little ones.
