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.

Brothers and sisters: Are you unaware that we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were indeed buried with him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might live in newness of life. (Rom 6:3-4)

In Baptism, we die with Christ so that we may live with Christ. As Saint Paul would say of his baptism: I have been crucified with Christ, and the life I live now is not my own, it is Christ living in me. Oh, I still live my human life, but it is a life of faith in the Son of God who loved and gave himself for me (Gal 2:20).
