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.

Wednesday, Week XVI, Ordinary Time

R.    The Lord gave them bread from heaven.
He rained manna upon them for food
    and gave them heavenly bread. 
Man ate the bread of angels,
    food he sent them in abundance.
R.    The Lord gave them bread from heaven. (Psalm 78)

To eat the bread of angels, that is our calling. As Jesus said, “It was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven; my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.” And when the disciples said, “Lord, give us this bread always,” Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.” (Jn 6:32-35)
