These reflections are a result of more than 40 years of ministry as a Roman Catholic priest. Most of these years I spent in the Diocese of Charlotte which covers Western North Carolina. Now I am retired, and live in Medellín, Colombia where I continue to serve as a priest in the Archdiocese of Medellín.

“Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Israel, and how you swore to them by your own self, saying, 'I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky.’” (Ex 32:7-14)
This scene is somewhat humorous, Moses having to remind God of the promises to the Patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Israel (Jacob). God remembers and relents. Perhaps we too need to remember.
