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.

Responsorial Psalm


R.    The Lord takes delight in his people.
Sing to the LORD a new song
    of praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel be glad in their maker,
    let the children of Zion rejoice in their king.R.    

Let them praise his name in the festive dance,
    let them sing praise to him with timbrel and harp.
For the LORD loves his people,
    and he adorns the lowly with victory.
R.    The Lord takes delight in his people.
(Psalm 149)

The Christmas Season comes to end tomorrow with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. But in some countries the Manger Scene stays up until the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord on February 2nd. The Responsorial Psalm speaks of God delighting in us and equally our praising God in the festive dance. Sounds like a wonderful fiesta!
