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.

Tuesday, Week XXXII, Ordinary Time

The souls of the just are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch them. They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us, utter destruction. But they are in peace. (Wis 2:23-3:9)
As the liturgical year draws to a close and a new liturgical year begins on the first Sunday of Advent, the liturgy turns our attention to the Last Things. As we say in the Profession of Faith: He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end . . . I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.
