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.

Friday, Week XXXIV, Ordinary Time

Jesus said to his disciples: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.” (Lk 21:29-33)
Black Friday is upon us! We also have Black Friday here in Colombia even though we don’t have Thanksgiving Day the day before. Perhaps, as the retail world celebrates the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, we need to stay focused on the things that matter, the things that don't pass away: faith, family and friends. Faith reminds us that we find God in the poor and needy. Family calls us to spend quality time with those who put up with us no matter what. Friendship extends our family infinitely to embrace the whole world.
