MESSAGE ON THE OCCASION OF THE WORLD AIDS DAY 2016 BY BR. MICHAEL A. PERRY, OFM

Message on the Occasion of The World Aids Day 2016 By Br. Michael A. Perry, OFM

In the diverse presences of the order there are communities that for over 20 years have been working faithfully and devoutly in this field; I am grateful for their sensitivity and the commitment. Also, I want to continue encouraging the whole Order to together offer our commitment of prayer for all those who live with HIV-AIDS or are affected by it. Let us pray together in our friaries, our pastoral communities and with the whole Franciscan family. I also want to encourage to the brothers to continue offering our services to all the infirm through health centers and pastoral service, and to transform our friaries, parishes and study centers into places of human and spiritual welcome. Our commitment must be oriented towards giving hope and to overcoming the stigma and the exclusion that in many occasions is a result of the ignorance facing this disease.



St. Francis of Assisi
