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.

R. Lead me in your justice, Lord. (Psalm 5)

The tragic death of George Floyd at the hands of police ignited massive demonstrations throughout the world. The cry for justice is ancient and very biblical. Today’s psalm reminds us that to enter God’s house, to offer God worship, we need to be on the path to justice. It’s what Pope Saint Paul VI said before the United Nations:

If you want peace, then work for justice.

If we don’t work for justice, then we can never worship God as God desires.
