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.

Dear Friends,
I will be leading a pilgrimage to the shrines of France May 19-31 with Proximo Travel ( Before the pilgrimage, I will visit Denmark and Norway and retrace the steps of my Torp ancestors. Our pilgrimage in France will culminate in Lourdes. After the pilgrimage in France, I will visit some of the shrines of Spain, and then will head to Asheville, NC, and will help out in Saint Eugene Parish. I will return to Colombia on July 6. As a consequence, the Daily Reflection will be on break starting TODAY and will return in July. In the meantime I will be posting some reflections and pictures from my travels and from the pilgrimage as time permits. I will be remembering you, your loved ones, and all our beloved sick in my Masses and prayers.
With lots of blessings!
el padre
