A reflection on the Gospel for the Twenty-Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

The parable in today’s gospel is among the better known, so much so that the memory of the raggedy beggar at the doorsteps of the rich man forms a part of popular culture. Today, there are still many Lazarus seeking justice—at the doorstep of the rich. They are immigrants who come from poor countries in search of a better life. There are the many who seek help from government social services or from the church. There are also many wealthy who continue to party incessantly without giving a thought to what is happening beyond their doors. Most have even installed security systems to prevent those outside from entering. The majority of us are probably not living in such extreme of wealth. While the parable may exaggerate reality a little, it is so we can appreciate its lessons. In the differences between the rich man and Lazarus we can better understand that we must not live our life focused solely on our own interests and concerns. Lazarus can be found among the poor we see on the streets. He is also found in any person close to us who needs affection and attention. On most occasions it is not about money, but about giving them time, companionship, a word of encouragement and understanding. Living as a Christian means opening our eyes to see beyond our own interests, needs or wants. Living as a Christian is to become interested in others to the point of giving up our life for another. Just as Jesus did.


Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del Vigésimo Sexto domingo del tiempo ordinario

La parábola del evangelio de hoy es una de las más conocidas. Tanto, que forma parte de la cultura popular el recuerdo de aquel personaje andrajoso que solicita limosna a las puertas del rico. Hoy sigue habiendo muchos lázaros que piden justicia—a las puertas de las casas ricas. Son los inmigrantes que vienen de países pobres en busca de una vida digna. Son las muchas personas que acuden a los servicios socials del gobierno, o de la iglesia, en busca de ayuda. También sigue habiendo muchos ricos que banquetean sin pensar en lo que sucede más allá de sus puertas. La mayoría incluso se ha provisto de un sistema de seguridad que no permita entrar. Posiblemente la mayoría de nosotros no estamos en los extremos. Pero aunque la parábola exagere un poco la realidad para que la entendamos mejor, si podemos entender algunas enseñanzas. En la oposición entre rico y Lázaro comprendemos mejor que no podemos vivir una vida en la que miremos apenas a nuestros propios intereses y preocupaciones. Lázaro son los pobres que a veces vemos pos las calles. Pero también es cualquier persona que está cerca de nosotros necesitada de cariño y atención. En muchas ocasiones no se trata de dar dinero, sino de ofrecer nuestro tiempo, nuestra compañia, una palabra de aliento, de comprensión. Vivir en cristiano significa abrir los ojos para ver más allá de mis intereses y deseos, de lo que me gusta. Vivir en cristiano es interesarme por los demás hasta dar la vida por ellos. Exactamente como hizo Jesús.

Prayer to Saint Bruno

Father, you called Saint Bruno to serve you in solitude. In answer to his prayers help us to remain faithful to you amid the changes of this world. We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spierit, one God forever and ever. Amen

Padre, tu llamaste a San Bruno para que te sirviera en solitude. En respuesta s sus oraciones ayudanos para seguir fieles a los cambios del mundo. Te pedimos esto atraves de Nuestro Padre Jesucristo, Tu Hijo, que vive y reina Contigo y el Santo Espiritu, un Dios para siempre. Amen

Pater Noster
Pater noster, qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem:
sed libera nos a malo. Amen
