Well perhaps Dominika could tell us, but I was thinking he was permanently disabled and was none the less in the service of God.

That's what I thought too. Frankly speaking, I don't have any idea who is he, but I'm afraid he's permanently disabled. Anyway, a great manifestation that everybody can serve God.

According to the Oxford Dictionary of English, the etymology of the word LORD can be traced back to the Old English word hlāford which originated from hlāfweard meaning 'bread keeper' or 'loaf-ward', reflecting the Germanic tribal custom of a chieftain providing food for his followers.[4] The appellation "lord" is primarily applied to men, while for women the appellation of "lady" is used. However, this is not universal; the Lord of Mann, a title currently held by the Queen, and female Lord Mayors are examples of women who are styled lord. The word lady originates from a similar structure, believed to have originally meant 'loaf-kneader.'
