A reflection on the Gospel for the 27th Sunday in Ordinary time

In today’s reading the prophet Habakkuk cries out, overwhelmed by the presence of violence and suffering in the city. In his answer, the Lord encourages Habakkuk to believe in the vision of a city of blessing and peace. Although evil often grabs our attention and can blind and deafen us to goodness, God says the Heavenly Jerusalem is becoming reality ...that the vision “presses on to fulfillment, and will not disappoint.” Faith is required, however, in those who take part in constructing the city of peace. We can observe in our surroundings the need for peace and for an end to violence. In our barrios, among our young people and often even in our own homes. It requires plenty of faith to carry out the work needed to bring about peace. Faith is a gift. In the second reading, St. Paul compares Timothy’s faith to a spark that he has received from God. The gift is unearned, but through his efforts, coupled with our hard work, will eventually build up within us “the strength that comes from God.”


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

En la primera lectura de hoy, el profeta Habacuc clama, abrumado por la presencia de la violencia y el sufrimiento en la ciudad. En su respuesta, el Señor anima a Habacuc a creer en la visión de una ciudad de bendición y paz. Aunque el mal a menudo centra nuestra atención y nos puede cegar y ensordecer a la bondad, Dios dice que la Jerusalén celestial se está convirtiendo en realidad...que la visión “se acerca a su cumplimiento, y no nos defraudara”. Se necesita fe, sin embargo, en quienes van a ser parte de la construcción de la ciudad de la paz. No va a ser fácil, ni rápido, ni sin que nuestros esfuerzos estén frirmamente arraigados en la fe. Somos nosotros quienes tenemos que construer la ciudad de la paz. Y bien vemos a nuestro alrededor lo necesaria que es la paz y la ausencia de la violencia. En nuestros barrios, entre nuestros jóvenes y a menudo en nuestros propios hogares, en nuestra relaciones. Necesitamos mucha fe para este trabajo de hacer la paz. La fe es un don. En la segunda lectura, San Pablo cmpara la fe de Timoteo con una chispa que ha recibido de Dios. El don no se merece, pero con sus esfuerzos, Timoteo puede avivar esa chispa y convertirla en una llam. No será fácil: vivir la vida del Evangelio va a comportar dificultades y sufrimientos. Sin embargo, la fe nos mantendrá en el juego. Y nuestros esfuerzos, junto con nuestro duro trabajo, al fin construirán dentro de nosotros, la “fortaleza que viene de Dios”.

Our
Family

God made us a family. We need each other. We love
one another and forgive one another. We work together
and play together. We worship together and use God’s
Word together. Together we grow in Christ and learn to
love all men. T ogether we serve our God and seek to
know His will. These are our hopes and ideals. Lord,
we ask for grace to attain them.
Amen.

Nuestra
Familia

Dios nos hizo una familia. Nos necesitamos los uno a otros. Nos
amamos y nos perdonamos unos a otros. Trabajamos y jugamos
juntos. Alabamos juntos y usamos juntos la Palabra de Dios.
Juntos creecemos en Cristo y aprendemos amar a todo ser. Juntos
Juntos servimos a Dios y buscamos Su voluntad. Estan son nuetras
esperanzas y ideas. Señor, te pedimos la gracia para obtenerlos.
Amen.
