Brian R Corbin's Reflections on Religion and Life

Living Your Faith as Citizens and Leaders in Politics, Culture, Society and Business

World AIDS Day: December 1

HIV/AIDS is a critical health and social policy issue.  Each year, the world remembers those who are living with and/or have passed into new life from complications from HIV/AIDS.  December 1 is also a time to give thanks to all those who have worked to care for persons and families living with HIV/AIDS.

I want to give special thanks to several leaders in the Catholic Church that have worked to care for persons with HIV/AIDS, worked for prevention, and for just social policies.  Such institutions and persons include:

Catholic Relief Services

Caritas Internationalis

and locally in Youngstown, the Ursuline Sisters AIDS Ministry.

Tell me what you think?

    Catholics that open their hearts to the preservation and honor of human life, including those who have died or are suffering from HIV/AIDS, are truly living in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. God bless all of us.
