Christmas Service for Lepers

What is Christmas if it is not giving, sharing, making someone happy, doing something especially for those who are sidelined, rejected by the society! Every year taking part in a Holy Mass for the lepers gives my Christmas meaning. This Mass is celebrated on 24 December evening at Missionaries of Charity Center. The children of our orphanage also attend it. I prepare the choir. The M.C. Brothers distribute a cup of tea and a piece of cake for all. The happy evening ends with some rounds of dance by young boys and girls.

After celebrating with family and friends for years I no longer get any satisfaction and so instead we have been throwing parties for poor kids since the last few years at different locations including even a beach resort.

This is a lovely idea. Do lepers attend? I don't know much about leprosy. It used to be highly contagious.

Yes, they do. Most of them are cured. However, I get some twisted or half fingers when I shake their hands to wish a "Happy Christmas."

@franxav I was thinking there wouldn't want to be a risk of contracting the disease.

It is indeed a good deed. Our team will have to give food for the street children in our city. Hopefully we can do more possible things this year.
