Welcome

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.

MONDAY, WEEK XII, ORDINARY TIME

Jesus said to his disciples: “Stop judging, that you may not be judged. For as you judge, so will you be judged, and the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you. (Mt 7:1-2)

We church people love to pass judgment on others. It just comes naturally. Perhaps that’s why Jesus had to spell it out for us: STOP JUDGING! And then to make sure we understood he added some of the most important words in the Scriptures: the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you.

The picture today is of Mr Humphries from the Men's Department at Grace Brothers in the British comedy, Are You Being Served?. With good humor, Mr Humphries always made sure that everyone got measured.
