It’s Good to Be Here: A Disabled Woman's Reflections on God in the Flesh and the Sacred Wonder of Being Human
Christina Chase, the twenty-first century Thérèse of Lisieux whose “littleness” is as humble as that of the Little Flower, and whose spiritual power is of comparable intensity. Crippled though she is, Christina’s fearful disabilities have led her not into anger, or despair, but rather into a profound encounter with God’s love itself.
From that littleness Christina here draws forth a wisdom that shows that as creatures, we are all, in one sense or another, paralyzed. Meditating on this fact yields a joy that transcends the greatest physical or mental suffering – a joy that is Christina’s, despite her physical state, and a joy that can be yours as well.
