pensées of a Catholic priest

19.08.2009 After the meeting….

Meeting done with the Archbishop and it was a good meeting. But there is still a formal way to go until a final result – so patience is once again asked. Hopefully latest at the end of next week I know the result and know, how my working life will develop. Patience is not one of my best virtue, but exercising it might do me good.. 🙂

This evening community council meeting, the last one in my capacity as the chaplain if transition is going smoothly; I hope for the best, say my little prayer the eve and wait…
But I am still optimistic that we will find a solution fitting the situations and the needs of all involved in this process.

It was a tough year which then hopefully draws to an end with a good decision and some productive work ahead. But now back to relaxation for my H1N1 stressed body before leaving again for town and the meeting. We have good people constituting the community council, they are really supportive and able to help guiding the community. So I am indeed looking forward to seeing them.

At the end stands the realisation how much damage a mean person can produce sitting high up in the hierarchy and playing with people as others would play the chess game. But the bible said that God is writing on twisted lines straight. Lets hope and see…

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.
