Based on their daily experience and with raised awareness and sensitivity, Mrs. Divina de Fatima and Sister Margaret Hosty, founders of the AAVE Group, “re-wrote” the Prayer of St. Francis as follows:


Lord make me an instrument

Of Support, Life and Hope.

Where this is lack of confidence

May I bring compassion.

Where there is judgment

May I bring understanding.

Where there is exclusion and rejection

May I bring acceptance.

Where there is conflict because of the virus

May I bring Peace.

Where there are opportunist infections

May I bring hope.

Where there is discord and prejudice

May I bring welcome.

Where there are feeling of guilt and revolt

May I bring listening.

Where there is fear 

May I bring courage.

Always and where ever HIV is

May I bring love.
