God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

pensées of a Catholic priest

26.08.009 a new day…

8 in the morning, a new day is beginning to blossom, the first sunshine is visible and promising a clear sunny Cape Town winter day. Lets hope that it stays like that.
Every day is like an empty sheet of paper and it is mainly up to me, what will be scribbled on this sheet during the day. I only can hope that one can recognise my handwriting at the end of the day.

Every day anew we have the change to live our own life, to change our perceptions, to live more fully, to take on opportunities, to better our lives and that of others. So many opportunities lying ahead. Which will I take, which will I not take up and maybe lose forever?

Every day is a new gift – and every day might be my last day, my last sunrise, my last meeting with people, my last casual chat… nobody knows when this day will break, but living every day as it would be the last is surely the best way of preparing for this very last day as a human on earth.

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.
