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.

Dedication of the Basilicas of Saints Peter and Paul, Apostles, Nov 18

Responsorial Psalm     (Psalm 119)
R. How sweet to my taste is your promise!
How sweet to my palate are your promises,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!

R. How sweet to my taste is your promise!
The sweetness of God’s Word fills our hearts and minds and calls us to remember the promises God has made. The dedication of the basilicas of the two apostles, Peter and Paul, reminds us that God is faithful and that the foundation of the church rests on the preaching and the witness of the two greatest martyrs. Today is the 4th anniversary of my arrival in my new home, Medellín, Colombia.
