God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

pensées of a Catholic priest

14.08.2009 swine flu or whatever…

It came within an hour – and after loosing 8 kg in2 days and nights it was time to see the doctor.. the flu had arrived – the real one, the one with the piggy name.. – somehow nicely imported from SE Asia I guess. It is indeed a strange feeling laying without movement in your own sweat and being scared to stand up or walk or even move.  Tamiflu and 36 hours of hospital stay with drips and drops and all that stuff  gave me at least my life back – at least in the form of being able to eat and drink again, realising, what is going on around me – and surely some days off to recover from that experience. Not a nice one, but it showed me once again, how fast life can turn around and from conquering the world you are squeezed into a little something happy to breathe… therefore just a brief entry.. bed is calling.  🙂 recovery time….

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.
