World AIDS Day

Today, December 1st, is World AIDS Day.
Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angles charge over those who sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all for your love’s sake. Amen.
BCP, 124 (Evening Prayer, Rite II)


“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
“The entire law is summed up in a single command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’* If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.” Galations 5:6,14-15
* Lev.19-18
