06.06.2010 stampede in Jozi

Only some days to go until the opening of the Soccer World Cup 2010 and a friendly match in Johannesburg ends with a stampede and injuries.. Not well done and please get it right – and “thanks” for sending another signal of incompetency to the world. As if we have not enough bad press to fight every day…

Besides this horrible news, the day went by quiet – Sunday service at Brooklyn Catholic Church,  and as always the mixture of cultures and traditions in this community is for me a symbol for the rainbow nation. Later the day visit of some friends and a premature birthday party for Fr Wim at Lands End in Gordon’s Bay – a nice crowd of people, good food and good conversations. Thanks Wim for the great eve.

With some preperaton for tomorrows meetings and interview requests the day ends on a working note.

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.
