God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

Reflections / Gedanken

14.08.2010 Whom will you meet…

…whom you encounter? This is a question I am always asking myself when going on travel, trying to tell the story of HOPE Cape Town and of the millions of people living with HIV and AIDS in South Africa.

Will I be able to bridge the gaps of reality here and there? Can I touch their hearts and minds to make them understand where I am coming from and where most people will end without a helping hand, a meaningful consideration which might not change the world, but the world of one individual – or better: two worlds: the world of the person, who helped and the person, who received the help…

It is indeed always an adventure to make oneself heard and through all the talks, there should be visible the faces of those who are born on the disadvantaged side of life. Our world is not perfect, will never be, but I am sure we can make a difference to bring more balance to the living conditions of those walking the planet.

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.
