for May 10

Saint Damien happily sacrificed all of his comfort for God's sake and the sake of those around him. He gave up his home, his family, and his physical appearance. He died outwardly ugly, surrounded only by those to whom he ministered. What would you be willing to go without in order to serve God and others?
Dear Jesus, help me to live with the selflessness of Saint Damien.
