A reflection on the Gospel for Third Sunday of Easter

I cannot believe it! We say this when the news is to good to be true. In this passage of the gospel of today, it seems as if Jesus has looked for all the possible sign for his friends to believe in this amazing and impossible news by all human calculations. Jesus has risen. He has indeed risen, since he is asking for something to eat and ghosts do not eat. He must have risen indeed, since what seemed impossible to the fishermen who had fished all night fruitlessly, and yet the net is almost broken because of so many fish. He must have risen, since he knew Peter had denied him three times and three times Jesus asks Peter to lead his people, the church. These are the effects of Jesus’ resurrection for us, those who believe in him: that we can feed those who are around us, trusting that God will bless the effort of our hands; that we can see how things we thought impossible, because a really; we see that we are asked to lead and participate in our church and community, even if we thought we were incapable or unworthy. Do not we love Jesus? Then we will have to trust, feed, and participate actively in our church. For the Hispanic people in the United States, this is crucial and urgent because we are growing in numbers and we need to be prepared for leadership and to prepare our youth. It is our call and the call to our children. Will we have the generosity and love to encourage them to give themselves totally to the mission of Jesus?


Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del tercer domingo de pascua

No me lo puedo cree! Decimos a veces cuando la noticias es demasiado buena como para creerla. En este pasaje del evangelio de hoy, parece que Jesús ha buscado todas las señales posibles para que sus amigos crean en esta noticia asombrosa e imposible para todos los esquemas humanos. Jesús ha resucitado. Ha tenido que resucitar, puesto que los fantasmas no comen, y Jesús pide algo que comer. Ha tenido que resucitar, puesto que aquello que les parecia imposible a los pescadores que habían pescado toda la noche se cumple, y la red casi se rompe de tantos pescados. Ha tenido que resucitar, puesto que sabe que Pedro lo habia negado tres veces y tres veces le ofrece un perdón incondicional a cambio de su amor. Tres veces le pide que dirija a su pueblo, su iglesia. Estos son los efectos de la resurreción de Jesús para nosotros, los que creemos en Él: que podemos dar de comer a quienes nos rodean, confiando en que Dios bendecirá el esfuerzo de nuestros brazos; que podemos ver cómo lo que nos parecía imposible, puede realizarse; que se nos pide que dirijamos y participemos en nuestra iglesia y en nuestra comunidad a nosotros, que nos considerábamos incapaces o indignos. ¿Amamos a Jesús? Pues tendremos que confiar, dar de comer, participar activamente en nuestra iglesia. Para el pueblo hispano en los Estados Unidos, esto es crucial y urgente: vamos creciendo y necesitamos prepararnos el liderazgo, y preparar a nuestros jóvenes. Es nuestra llamada y la llamada a nuetros hijos. ¿Tendremos la generosidad y el amor de animarlos a entregarse totalmente a la misión de Jesús?
