At head of cover title: Southdown.
"[B]y John Allan Loftus, S.J., PhD."
"For Private Use Only : Confidential Material. Not To Be Duplicated In Any Form Without Explicit Permission". -- verso of t.-p.
"This is an adaptation of an address originally presented for clergy and Religious at the National Catholic AIDS Ministry Conference, University of Notre Dame, June 26-July 1, 1988". -- p. 5.
The text of this address "concerns not a terribly-wide spread phenomenon perhaps, but one with particularly sensitive dimensions: clergy and Religious who themselves contract the [AIDS] virus. This is not, to be sure, a very 'popular' topic. In fact there are still those among us who shudder at the very thought of discussing sexuality in an explicit context when it concerns ministers. But on this broad landscape of sexuality among celibate ministers, there are many questions that remain to be explored, and there are clear invitations to be more explicit and more detailed. I present the following reflections to you in the hope that at least one dimension of a very complex issue can receive a wider hearing. Because of the sensitive nature of this discussion, copies of this presentation will be made available only to Major Superiors and Bishops in the U.S. and Canada". -- Foreword.
Contents: Foreward i.e. Foreword / John Allan Loftus, Executive Director -- Clergy and religious exposed to AIDS : an invitation to care.
Text divided into sections: Part One: Surveying the Terrain -- A virus knows no religion -- The obvious method of transmission -- Is this a gay problem ? -- The real "high risk" population -- A plea for education -- Part Two: The Emotional and Spiritual Consequences of AIDS -- Consequences even before exposure -- With HIV positive status, ARC, or AIDS -- Clusters of emotional issues -- Some final reflections.
