Feast Day May 10
Saint Damien, you let yourself be guided by the Holy Spirit as a son obedient to the will of the Father.
By your life and your mission you manifest the tenderness and mercy of Christ, who reveals to us the beauty of the inner person that no sickness, no deformity, no weakness can completely disfigure.
By your work and your preaching you remind us that Jesus took upon Himself the poverty and suffering of every person, and by doing so He revealed its mysterious value.
Intercede with Christ, healer of bodies and souls, for our sick brothers and sisters, so that, in their anguish and pain, they may not feel abandoned but united to the risen Lord and His church.
May they see that the Holy Spirit has come to visit them and thus may they experience the consolation promised to the sorrowful. Amen.
