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.

Epiphany of the Lord, January 8

The Magi were overjoyed at seeing the star, and on entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother. They prostrated themselves and did him homage. Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. (Mt 2:1-12)
Tomorrow, Monday, January 9, I leave for the United States and will return to Colombia on Thursday, February 9. I will be helping in Saint Eugene Parish in Asheville, NC. The Daily Reflection and the Flower Ministry will both be on vacation. Following today’s Mass, the Sunday Mass on Facebook will also be on vacation. Those interested may stream Sunday Mass with the Padre on YouTube from Saint Eugene Parish, Asheville, on January 15, 22, & 29 (https://youtube.com/@StEugeneChurch). Mass on Facebook will return on Sunday, February 12 at 3:00 pm Colombia time and 3:00 pm Eastern Time Zone in the USA. Today is also my birthday—and YOU are the best birthday present ever!
