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.

But you, remain faithful to what you have learned and believed, because you know from whom you learned it, and that from infancy you have known the sacred Scriptures, which are capable of giving you wisdom for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. (2 Tim 3:14-15)

As the Second Letter to Timothy reveals, Timothy has received the faith from his mother and grandmother. As the old apostle reminds him:

I recall your sincere faith that first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and that I am confident lives also in you. (2 Tim 1:4-5)

I’ve always loved this passage . . . it reminds me of the two women of faith in my own life . . . my mother Norma, and my grandmother Minnie. I just hope to live up to the examples they both gave me.
