God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

pensée of a Catholic priest

20.07.2009 Priorities or do I miss out something??

Reading about the trillions being suddenly invested in big companies and the economic sector – it seems there is no problem to print the money and “stabilize” the economics and bring it out of recession.
Millions of people dying every day, because the lack of food, the lack of clean water, the lack of medical attention.. and we have to “battle” for every dollar.

And now the first banks report great earnings, big bonus will be paid out again.. business as usual is launching again….  Nothing learned? No nothing really learned! We covered the wounds but avoided the operation..
Human mankind can sometimes be a real” disgrace” for being a son or daughter of God.

Can somebody tell me who’s priorities are wrong??
Or maybe it is, because those in politics and economics, who have been part of the problem, are indeed part of the solution again, which means in consequence, that they will become part of the problem again. You can call it the “circle of life”.

HIV, AIDS and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and AIDS in Africa is often a challenge. Living in Africa has also its challenges. On the other hand I feel very much blessed having all the three. So you will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa and essential information and developments in the field of HIV and AIDS. And in between personal stories and thoughts. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me - blogs - "thinking loud" so to speak is a ways of communication and exchange of ideas.
