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.

Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s knowledge. Even all the hairs of your head are counted. So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. (Mt 10:29-31)

God's love is a providential love, God provides for all our needs . . . and we of little faith need reminding because sometimes we forget. It's like that old gospel hymn that Ethel Waters used to sing: ♫His eye is on the sparrow . . . and I know he watches me♫. Like a mother who tenderly cares for her child, like a father helping his child to take a first step . . . our God cares for us . . . and provides for all our needs. This God who like a loving parent will never, ever forget us.
