About me

September 21st, 2010

Father Maciej Braun CR — tho­ugh he has emp­ty hands — helps. Altho­ugh he some­ti­mes is sub­du­ed or sad — always try­ing to give you a smi­le. His opti­mism is con­ta­gio­us, he is sen­si­ti­ve to the poor, in love with the poor and the sick, and wor­ried abo­ut the smal­lest. After Mass he is giving can­dy to chil­dren. Always in a rush to visit tho­se dying alo­ne. Tire­les­sly sha­ring his faith with others. He builds chur­ches in the far away pla­ces, sit­ting and eating toge­ther with the buil­ders, tire­les­sly liste­ning to all that seek his atten­tion… — living out his prie­stly mot­to — „This is my heart, I sacri­fi­ce it for you today”.

He is a quiet, hum­ble mis­sio­na­ry, cal­ling for help from belie­vers: Help me give a hel­ping hand! He dre­ams that his pari­shio­ners will feel impor­tant, needed and loved, to live and die with digni­ty, with Christ in the­ir hearts.

His lite­ra­ry achie­ve­ments inc­lu­de having writ­ten three books „Eye of a needle — how to sew a life”, „Hear” and „Wam­bu­ra — born in the rain.”

Father Braun, CR, comes from Gro­dzisk , was born in Poznan (Poland). After gra­du­ation, he joined the Con­gre­ga­tion of the Resur­rec­tion. Orda­ined in 2003, he served as a youth pastor in Bytom, and then in Vien­na. During this time he rele­ased two musi­cal albums (CDs) with tho­se youth teams.

He is cur­ren­tly pastor of Butia­ma Parish in Tan­za­nia in East Afri­ca.
