Religious community for girls with trisomy



Thanks to Berenike for this lovely story posted on her blog Laodicea: Little Sisters Disciples of the Lamb. This is a small contemplative Benedictine community called Little Sisters Disciples of the Lamb. There are seven sisters, five of whom have Downs syndrome. They have recently moved to a new location "near a large Benedictine Monastery". (That would be Fontgombault.)

90% of children with Downs Syndrome are killed before seeing the light of day. Small as it is, this community's charming and gentle example deserves to echo around the globe as a testament that people are not worthless just because they have trisomy.
