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.

“What is this?
A new teaching with authority.
He commands even the unclean spirits and they obey him.”
His fame spread everywhere throughout the whole region of Galilee.
(Mk 1:21-28)

Jesus taught with authority. Of course, we weak human beings crave that kind of authority for ourselves. We want our word to be law. Sometimes we forget that Jesus’ authority comes from love and service. As Jesus prays in the garden, “Not my will but yours be done!” (Lk 22:42)
