On World AIDS Day 2013 we offer this collection of prayers, blessings, poetry and meditations.

May they offer hope to those living with HIV and AIDS, strength to all of those who continue to care for those people living with AIDS, wisdom to those who search for a cure, and courage to those who fight for a world where people living with HIV/AIDS are giving respect and dignity.
