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.

Friday, Week II, Advent

Jesus said to the crowds: "To what shall I compare this generation? For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they said, 'He is possessed by a demon.' The Son of Man came eating and drinking and they said, 'Look, he is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.' But wisdom is vindicated by her works." (Mt 11:16-19)
A friend of tax collectors and sinners . . . indeed. The One whose coming we await invites us to sit at His table and fills us with rich food and choice wine and the gift of Himself, and then invites us to satisfy the deepest hungers of the human heart so that everyone can find a place at His table.
