"The Church in the United States in enriched by its deaf and hard of hearing brothers and sisters. 'The men and women of our own day –often perhaps unconsciously–ask believers not only to speak of Christ, but in a certain sense to show Him to them.' That is the human heart’s deepest longing. That is the yearning of the deaf and hard of hearing people in America. That is the impetus and goal of the Church’s ministry with the deaf and hard of hearing. 'Together we are the Church' (CCC)."
