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.

As a body is one though it has many parts, and all the parts of the body, though many, are one body, so also Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free persons, and we were all given to drink of one Spirit. (1 Cor 12:3b-7, 12-13)
If we all drink of the one Spirit, then why do we have such divisions in the Body of Christ? If Pentecost is the reversal of the Tower of Babel, then perhaps we really need to listen to the Spirit speaking to the Heart of the Church and allow the Spirit to renew the spiritual gift of service in us so that we may accomplish the work to which we are called: to proclaim the same Spirit, the same Lord, the same God.
