Patient, affected by muscular dystrophy
"As a catholic I would like to understand why there is death. I would like to understand why there is pain when you have not caused it or others have caused it. I do not want to hear answers like, "The Lord is putting you to the test." If God is love and wants the good of his creations/children, I cannot understand why, if he loves them, he puts them to the test by harming them, especially by giving them an incurable illness. I think the first thing that should be conveyed by religions is the acceptance of the person as they are, without pity, without thinking: "this is a disabled person, now I’ll do a good deed." As I understand from the Gospel, even if a child is ill or has some intellectual difficulties, he/she is first and foremost a person and a son/daughter of God"
