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.

Monday, Week I, Ordinary Time

As he passed by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea; they were fishermen. Jesus said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Mk 1:14-20)

Today in the weekday lectionary, we begin the continuous reading of the public ministry of Jesus in the Gospel of Mark, the oldest of the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark, & Luke). After the arrest of John the Baptist, Jesus begins his ministry with the call of the first disciples and the invitation, “Come, follow me.” If you’ve never had the opportunity to read one of the gospels straight through, perhaps you can begin today with Mark’s gospel!
