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.

Saturday of our Lady, the Blessed Virgin Mary in Advent

Responsorial Psalm (Psalm 147)
R. Blessed are all who wait for the Lord.The LORD rebuilds Jerusalem;
 and gathers the dispersed of Israel. 
R. Blessed are all who wait for the Lord. The Lord heals the brokenhearted
 and binds up their wounds.
 The Lord tells the number of the stars;
 and calls each by name. R. Blessed are all who wait for the Lord.
Patience is the key virtue of Advent, to wait for the Lord. The image of Mary, Great with Child, captures the imagination of the church during this Holy Season.
