Inspirational Priest - Fr Cyril Axelrod is the Only Active Deaf and Blind Priest in the World

Fr Cyril Axelrod is a redemptorist Priest from the United Kingdom who was born profoundly deaf and was raised in a devout Jewish family, but converted to Catholicism as a young man.
While in the Seminary, Fr Cyril began to lose his sight due to Ushers syndrome which causes congenital deafness and late onset blindness.
He is claimed to be the only active deaf and blind priest in the world.
