God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

pensées of a Catholic priest

05.12.2010 Back home…

After 6 weeks back  home again… and slowly one starting to sort out all the impressions collected on this very long trip. Whom do you have promised to contact, whom to send details, information; let alone all the emails still waiting for a reply. Not to forget the reminder of those emails not answered directly. Emails can be cruel – because it seems that everybody expects me to be online 24/7… Even with a Blackberry that is not the case anymore – humanity fades if one is only determined from the peep of a blackberry or the next internet accessibility. Yes, I do try to be up to date with all my emails and answer as soon as possible. But I refuse to become a slave of the modern world being available around the clock or at least within the next hours. There are emergencies, but generally it is time to overcome the fascination of the technical advance – all the modern communication should serve human mankind, not make the people more restless and hectic. See who is preaching.. 🙂

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.
