My Father-in-law is 72 years old and has been blind since infancy. He is the most godly man I know, and is a spiritual hero in my eyes. Although he is an evangelical Protestant, he is always open and interested in the Orthodox Faith. I would love to give him a copy of the Divine Liturgy in Braille. Does anyone know where I might be able to find this?

Also, he loves to listen to sermons and theological books on tape or cd. If anyone has the capacity to burn cd's of Orthodox sermons or copies of the Divine Liturgy and would like to donate some to my father-in-law, I know he would love to listen to them. Please PM me if you are interested and able to contribute such materials, and I will give you his mailing address.

Thank you all very much.

Last summer, when my family and I visited the Monastery of the Transfiguration in Ellwood City, PA, the abbess gave a copy of the liturgy in braille to a young blind woman who had stopped by the monastery for a visit.  I will write to inquire where it came from.  If I learn anything, I'll be sure to let you know.
