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.

Sunday, Week III, Advent, Gaudete Sunday

Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit. (1 Thes 5:16-24)
Today the Liturgy calls us to rejoice . . . for the Lord is near: the One whose coming we await fills the hungry with good things, and sends the rich away empty. This week we went shopping for gifts for the poor children. Now we are ready. O Wisdom of our God Most High, guiding creation with power and love: come to teach us the path of knowledge!
