Pope Benedict XVI on World AIDS Day

Pope Benedict XVI made the following remarks last Sunday on the feast of Christ the King.

"This coming December 1 marks World AIDS Day. I wish greatly that this occasion promotes an increased responsibility for the care of this illness, together with the pledge of avoiding each instance of discrimination toward the many stricken with it. Calling the comfort of the Lord upon the sick and their families, I encourage the many initiatives that the Church maintains in this area."
