Autism Sunday 2009

Today I discovered that Autism Sunday the International Day of Prayer for Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome took place on Sunday 8th February 2009. His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI has invoked God’s blessings blessing on parents, carers, children and adults with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.

His Holiness the Pope will be praying for the Autism Community on Autism Sunday. Cathedrals, Churches and religious organisations are to pray for over 60 million people with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome around the world. All faith communities have been urged to do more for the Autism Community particularly during the deepening global recession.

Here is the song for Autism, ‘Open Every Door’ released as a film on YouTube. The song is sung by the Asian superstar Gresha Schuilling and written by singer/songwriter Nimal Mendis. ‘Open Every Door’ is released through Media Eye Music in London.

Churches and religious organisations around the world are using ‘Open Every Door’ as a point of reflection. It is a moving song about a child or young person with autism or Asperger’s Syndrome.
