pensées of a Catholic priest

25.10.2009 Further comment to the news of the Vatican…

Congratulations to Cardinal Peter Turkson for his appointment to head the Justice & Peace office. To appoint an African Cardinal was in my eyes a wise move. As my home bishop is the head of the Justice & Peace commission in Germany and we from HOPE Cape Town have a memorandum of understanding with the Justice & Peace Commission of the Archdiocese of Cape Town, I am in good spirit about all these developments and hope this will lead to some synergies. Africa will push justice and peace and with it also some of the topics related to HIV and AIDS. Ein Schelm der Boeses denkt… 🙂

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.
