VIDEO: Bishop Borys Talks about UCU and the Disabled

Thursday, September 14, 2017

In this Ukrainian-language video, Bishop Borys Gudziak, President of the Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU), talks about people with intellectual disabilities who are present at the very heart of the university. And here’s an English translation of a brief quote from the video:

“Our friends have a special ability to build relationships. They throw away protocol, which often freezes communication, and they create trust. And we see that there’s no threat here. Perhaps in general the main reality of my life is not threats but possibilities: God’s grace, His mercy and blessing. Thinking about the well-rounded formation of young people, not only intellectual but being ready to live in community, we invited to the center of our university people with special needs. Because they teach us to trust, to take risks, to love. And we need this!”
