prayer to St. Damien of Molokai (St. Joseph de Vuester)

St. Joseph de Vuester

St. Joseph de Vuester

Fr. Damien, brother on the journey, happy and generous missionary, who loved the Gospel more than your own life, who for love of Jesus left your family, your homeland, your security and your dreams. Teach us to give our lives with joy like yours, to be in solidarity with the outcasts of our world, to celebrate and contemplate the Eucharist as the source of our own commitment.
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.






If God sends you adversity, receive it in patience and give thanks to our Savior and… He will make it turn to your advantage. If He sends you prosperity, then thank Him humbly… For we should not fight against God with his own gifts.
