"And all this is from God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ and given us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting their trespasses against them and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. So we are ambassadors for Christ, as if God were appealing through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God."
- 2 Corinthians 5:18-20
I am a Franciscan Friar with the Province of the Immaculate Conception, currently ministering in New England.
I've been called all sorts of things: Lumen ad revelationem gentium in obscuritatis, Restorer of the Breach, Ha-Loruhamah Ruhami, Bone Collector, but one of my favorite nicknames is my trail-name Pilgrim Padre.
