God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

pensée of a Catholic priest

Second week in Germany

Time is flying and I am already for 10 days in Germany. The BUGA, talks in St. Augustin @ the SVD seminary (Steyler missionaries)  and the KHG Aachen (Catholic Students Society) – visits to the Kath. Auslandssekretariat der DBK (German Bishops Conference), the German AIDS Foundation, meeting with individuals from church and NGO background and some interviews – sometimes it is difficult for me to exactly remember the date or the number of the hotel room while coming for breakfast in the morning…

Tomorrow I will be in Wuerzburg to meet with G. Stich from the Missionsaerztliche Institut – and then seeing other people before rushing on Friday morning at 6 am in the morning to be in time at a school in Ueberlingen to spend a morning with students. Friday afternoon I am expected in Freiburg and Sunday in Munich. Time is really flying but until now the talks have been beneficial for the cause of HOPE Cape Town or the RC church – new ideas and new perspectives for the work in Cape Town are being formed in my mind and as it looks I also will do pastoral work for the cruise-liner industry once in a while, organised by the Kath. Auslandssekretariat of the DBK.  A new task adding to the variety of my work portfolio.

So until now even the German weather cannot dampen my good mood and spirit and I hope for productive days ahead.

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.
