A reflection on the Gospel for the Twenty Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jesus does not discourage the disciples who want to be leaders. He simply explains to them what true leadership is all about—service. A leader starts by identifying with some worthy cause and joins people in solidarity for the freedom of the people. He places all his enegies at the service of the total surrender, renouncing a search for honors or priveleges, advantage or comforts for themselves. This means also to be ready to drink of the cup of bitterness, opposition, loneliness, and perhaps even death. Those who are chosen to lead their people to the lands of new promise knew well suffering and bitterness. But, because their motivation was the good of the people and not their own, they remained faithful in their trials. We are still in need of people who listen to the sufferings of those who are poor, putting compassion where there is abuse, truth where there is selfishness. We need people who dedicate their lives and efforts to defending the rights of any human being and to change a society where hatred and greed and the search for pleasure seem to take priorty over love and mutual service and work in solidarity to improve everyone’s lot. These people who dedicate their lives to transforming the society in which we live, might expect bitterness, trials, and perhaps even persecution. If we want to be Christian leaders, we need to be like salt which gets dissolved in order to give taste; we need to be as leaven, which, in order to make the dough rise, will find resistance.


Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del Vigesimo Noveno Domingo

Jesús no desanima a sus discípulos que quieran ser líderes. Simplemente les explica en qué consiste el liderazgo verdadero. En servir. El líder comienza por identificarse con la legitima causa de los demás: se hace solidario con ellos y con su salvación. Pone todas su fuerzas al servicio de la liberación total del pueblo. Eso supone una entrega total, remuciando a lo que es la búsqueda de honores o privilegios, o ventajas o comodidades para uno mismo. Esto supone, además, estar dispuestos a beber el cáliz de la amargura, del rechazo, de la oposición, de la soledad, tal vez de la muerte. Los elegidos para guiar a sus pueblos a tierras de nuevas promesas concocieron el sufrimiento y la amargura. Pero, porque lo que los movía era el bien del pueblo y no el suyo solo, permanecieron fieles en la prueba. Continúa la necesidad de personas que oigan el sufrir del pueblo pobre y, poniendo compasión donde hay abuso, y poniendo verdad donde hay mentira, y poniendo amor donde sólo hay egoísmo, dediquen su vida y su esfuerzo a defender los derechos de todo ser humano y a cambiar una sociedad dondo aún parece imperar el odio y la ambición y el deseo. Esas personas que dediquen su vida a transformar la sociedad en que vivimos, pueden esperar amargura, tribulaciones, y tal vez persecuciones. Si aspiramos a ser líderes cristianos hemos de ser como la sal, que por dar sabor se disuelve. Como la levadura, que por hacer fermentat la masa se va a encontrar con su resistencia.
