Reflections / Gedanken

15.10.2005 Exhaustion and travel preparations

It is amazing how a body can hold on and keep one carrying through weeks of stress – until the point where it feels that rest is needed. That happened to me on Monday when my body simply shut down and I almost slept for 36 hours – with some small interruptions to get some food. An amazing feeling when you feel at the end of it all – nothing goes anymore, even to think seems to cause stress and is almost impossible.

After 2 days of further rest I am slowly getting back to normal and will leave for my trip to Germany and Vatican on coming Saturday. I will meet in Hannover with my friend Joachim Franz from be your own hero e.V. and we will both fly to Rome to meet with the papal council for health care workers to continue discussion we had in November last year. Then back to Wolfsburg where we will have a 2 days meeting to discuss further cooperation between us. Very exciting times for me, for HOPE Cape Town and for all those, who will benefit from more cooperation and maximized support.

HIV, Development and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and social development in Africa has its challenges. You will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa, about politics and whatever triggers my interest. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me. Blogging means to initiate thoughts and discussions and for the writer to formulate what is loosely running around in the heart and mind in need of being sorted and spoken out.
