The mystery of people with disabilities is that they long for authentic and loving relationships more than for power. They are not obsessed with being well- situated in a group that offers acclaim and promotion. They are crying out for what matters most: love. And God hears their cry because in some way they respond to the cry of God, which is to give love.

Jean Vanier in "Living Gently in a Violent World," p. 22
