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.

XXII Sunday, Ordinary Time

Brothers and sisters: You have approached Mount Zion and the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and countless angels in festal gathering, and the assembly of the firstborn enrolled in heaven, and God the judge of all, and the spirits of the just made perfect, and Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and the sprinkled blood that speaks more eloquently than that of Abel. (Heb 12:18-19, 22-24a)
The assembly of the firstborn enrolled in heaven . . . today (August 28) is the anniversary of my mom’s passing. She died in 1996, 26 years ago. Whatever good I may have done in my life is wholly attributable to her, whatever foolishness is totally mine.
