"Those who suffer from Aids deserve both compassion and help. The Church, with its message of divine love and its requirement of neighbourly love, should assist in promoting their pastoral care. These guidelines are written to help those in dire need. ..... This booklet, prepared by the Social Policy Committee, deals with pastoral rather than moral aspects of Aids. When people are ill they need help and support. Our prime concern has been this: how can pastoral care best be given to those who suffer from this tragic and as yet incurable illness ?" -- Foreword.
Includes bibliographical references, p.13-14.
