World AIDS Day

Every year, December 1 is observed as World Aids Day.  Below is a prayer from the Catholic Health Association and here you'll find current statistics on this global epidemic.
God of Promise,
today we are mindful of our sisters and brothers 
suffering with HIV and AIDS. 
We ask your healing presence 
on millions of people living with the disease today;
particularly the children who are infected 
or who have been orphaned by the disease. 
Make of us a safe haven for those who are abandoned,
discriminated against and rejected on account of their illness. 
Inspire us to speak out for a just distribution 
of health care and medical aid in this country 
and for generosity in sharing our resources with those struggling 
under the weight of this epidemic overseas. 
As we begin our Advent celebration 
of waiting in hope for the birth of your Son, 
let us remember those across the world 
who wait in hope for a cure. Amen.
