Having a disability doesn’t stop the girls at St Mary’s School for the Visually Impaired in Kawambwa, Zambia, from playing their favourite sport: handball! Many of the partially sighted students can play handball and soccer without needing any adaptations. For children with complete vision loss, they play with a beeping ball. Now, that’s a handy workaround!

The Sisters of the Child Jesus run two schools for the visually impaired in Zambia. One of them is named after St. Odilia. But who exactly was she?St. Odilia was born blind in a small community in France, but miraculously regained her sight when she was baptized at age 12. She chose to live a prayerful life in solitude and is now the Patron Saint of the eyes and blindness.St. Odilia, pray for the children of Kawambwa, Zambia. May they be filled with the Light of God!
Andrew Hachey Jesus, Light of the world, bless the good work of the Sisters of the Child Jesus and those they serve. St. Odilia, pray for them....and pray for all of us, who can be blind in other ways. 1 month ago
