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. Praise the Lord, who heals the brokenhearted.
He heals the brokenhearted
    and binds up their wounds.
He tells the number of the stars;
    he calls each by name.
R. Praise the Lord, who heals the brokenhearted.
(Psalm 147)

Sometimes like Job, we need to sing the Blues: “I’ll never be happy again.” But the Liturgy gently reminds us that God has not abandoned us. We can praise the Lord because God heals the brokenhearted. Even though God calls the stars by name, God still remembers us.
