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.

How does this special knowledge of what the Father has revealed change us? Could this be the "treasure buried in the field" or the “pearl of great price” that one would give everything to have?
