pensées of a Catholic priest

23.04.2010 Grenades

Holiday in the danger zone – so or similar is a title of a series on one of the DSTV channels. Yesterday it felt like it, when only minutes made the difference between staying a couple of meters next to the carnage of some grenades fired into the crowd and being exactly within that crowd. Bangkok seems to offer mor than the usual excitement – I am used in the last years of demonstrations, road and airport closures, political turmoil and much more, but for the first time I am at the spot of action.. which shows that in our days one can not avoid it completely.

This incident tells me a lot about life, and how short it might be – and that we have to live our life to the fullest every day. More is not to say today…

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. 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.
