Caritas adviser encouraged by Pope's words on AIDS fight

November 24, 2010

Pope Benedict’s dicussion of AIDS in his new book Light of the World is a “wonderful affirmation” of the work done by Caritas International in Africa, according to a priest who advises the international Catholic charity.

Msgr. Robert Vitillo told Vatican Radio that the Pope’s words encourage those who are dealing with AIDS victims. “We not be abandoning those people who are engaged in activities that put themselves and others at risk, but we should be accompanying them to help them become more responsible,” he said.
