A reflection on the Gospel for Fourth Sunday of Easter

There are some voices we recognize immediately, even by phone where the voice is a little distorted. There are voices of people we really love, or people we cannot bear. There are times when we do not want to hear those voices. Sometimes the voices don’t ask us for anything. They simply great us or inform us of something. Many times the voices we hear call us to action: they ask for a favor, claim payment for adebt, or encourage us to action. Jesus says today that those who follow him recognize his voice among many other voices and, recognizing it, they know what to do. Sometimes we would rather be deaf, or play deaf. If we don’t hear a request, we don’t have to do anything. But, if we claim to be followers of Jesus, we need to recognize the voice and do something. How can we hear the voice of Jesus today? The people close to us, those who want our own good, have the voice of Jesus. Sometimes it comes through a message of the church. Sometimes it comes through something that happens in our lives, and forces us to reflect on the meaning of life and what we value most. All those things are the voice of Jesus.

Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del cuarto domingo de pascua

Hay voces que reconocemos instantáneamente, incluso por teléfono, donde la voz está un poco distorsionada. Son voces de personas que queremos muchos, o personas a las que no podemos soportar. Hay veces que no queremos oír esas voces. A veces las voces no nos piden nada. Simplemente saludan, o informan. Pero muchas veces las voces que escuchamos nos llaman a la acción: piden un favor, reclaman una deuda, animan a una acción. Dice Jesús hoy que los que le siguen reconocen su voz entre muchas voces y, al reconocerla, saben lo que tienen que hacer. A veces quisiéramos ser sordos, o hacernos los sordos. Si no hemos oído la petición, no tenemos que entrar en acción. Pero si decimos que somos seguidores de Jesús, entonces hay que reconocer la voz y actuar. ¿Cómo podemos escuchar la voz de Jesús hoy? Las personas cercanas a nosotros, quienes quieren nuestro bien, tienen la voz de Jesús. A veces un mensaje en la iglesia. A veces algo que ocurre en nuestra vida nos oblige a reflexionar sobre el sentido de la vida y lo que más valoramos, es la voz de Jesús.
