Monachos.com: A Discussion regarding Clergy in wheelchairs

President Franklin Roosevelt, Ruthie Bie, and Fala

An Orthodox Christian  who has a disability asks, 

Our Orthodox church is full of understanding . But do you ever see priest in a wheelchair ? Or a bishop, or a deacon, or a reader? What happens when a priest cannot stand on his legs, but he is fully functional with hands? Can that priest serve ? I am asking because I study Orthodox theology, and have a handicap. One more question what happens with  a priest who is in a car accident and becomes confined to a wheelchair? Is he still a priest? A handicapped person is not an ill person.
