World AIDS Day + 1.December 2011

Saint Damian of Molokai, patron saint of those who suffer from AIDS or HIV

St. Damien, brother on the journey,Happy and generous missionary,

who loved the Gospel more than your life,

who for love of Jesus left your family,

your homeland, your security, your dreams,

Teach us to give our lives
with a joy like yours,

to be in solidarity with the outcasts of the world,

especially those who suffer from HIV or AIDS,

& to celebrate and contemplate the Eucharist

as the source of our committment.

Help us to love to the very end

and, in the strength of the Spirit,

to persevere in compassion

for the poor and forgotten

so that we might be
good disciples of Jesus and Mary.

Amen.
