Welcome

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.

THANKSGIVING DAY (USA), 2021

And one of them, realizing he had been healed, returned, glorifying God in a loud voice; and he fell at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. He was a Samaritan.
Jesus said in reply, “Ten were cleansed, were they not? Where are the other nine? Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?” 
Then he said to him, “Stand up and go; your faith has saved you.” (Lk 17:11-19)

For many folks Thanksgiving Day marks the beginning of the Christmas Season. My mother loved Thanksgiving and Christmas. She always began the season by watching Truman Capote’s A Christmas Memory with Geraldine Page.
