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.

I will make with them a covenant of peace;
    it shall be an everlasting covenant with them,
    and I will multiply them, and put my sanctuary among them forever.
My dwelling shall be with them;
    I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
(Ez 37:21-28)

The everlasting covenant of peace that God promises is fulfilled in Jesus, who “pitches his tent among us,” who “makes his dwelling among us” (John 1:14). As we enter into this Holy Week, let us invite all our brothers and sisters to join us in being the sanctuary where God dwells with us. The photo today is of the monolith in Vigeland Park in Oslo, Norway.
