A reflection on the Gospel for Easter Sunday

Some people are convinced that through their own efforts, by taking good care of themselves, doing all the things recommended to have good health and more, they may never die. We know that is not so; there is nothing more definite than death. But we also know how the story ends. The God who resurrected Jesus will also resurrect us. If it were not that way, then our life here would have no meaning. It would not make sense to serve others, to treat everyone fairly and honesty, to have compassion and place the interests of others before our own. It would make no sense to strive for anything except wealth, personal comforts and egoism. We would live as slaves to our desires, thinking there is nothing more. And even then, we would not find much sense in a life where we would inevitably encounter difficulty and pain. But Christians know that the end of the story is that Jesus—not us through our own efforts— conquers death beyond the physical aspects: conquering selfishness, slavery, injustice and pain. Today is a grand day for us because we see our deepest desires come true. Jesus has conquered death, so we can continue living in hope.


Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del Domingo de Pascua

Dicen que hay personas que están convencidas de que, por su propio esfuerzo, cuidándose mucho, haciendo todas las cosas recomendadas para la salud y alguna más, no van a morir nunca. Sabemos que eso no es así y que no hay nada más seguro que la muerte física. Pero sabemos también el fin de la historia. El Dios que resucitó a Jesús nos resucitará a nosotros también. Si no fuera así, esta vida no tendría mayor sentido. Es decir, no tendría sentido servir a otros, tartar a todos con justicia y verdad, tener compasión y poner los intereses de los demás por delante de los propios. No tendría sentido esforzarnos nada más por el dinero, la comodidad propia y el egoísmo. Podríamos vivir como esclavos de nosotros mismos pensando que no hay más allá. Y ni así se encontraría mucho sentido a la vida en la que inevitablemente nos vamos a encontrar con problemas y dolor. Pero los cristianos sabemos que el fin de la historia es que Jesús—no nosotros por nuestras propias fuerzas y cuidados—vence a la muerte más allá de todo lo físico: vence al egoísmo, a la esclavitud, a la injusticia y al propio dolor. Hoy es un día grande para nosotros porque vemos nuestros más profundos deseos cumplidos. Jesús ha vencido a toda muerte y podemos seguir viviendo con esperanza.

Viernes Santo

Nos hemos reunido para recordar la muerte de Jesús, nuestro hermano y redentor. Hacemos una pausa de silencio religioso al mediodia para mirarle, y escucharle a él, que siempre tiene algo que decir, nuevo e importante, aunque desconcierte y rompa nuestros esquemas mentales. Recordar y vivir una historia como si presente me hallase a esa muerte atroz. Más que la obra del cirujano importa la reflexión del evangelista; no tanto lo que sufre como lo que dice y trasmite. Lo mejor que el evangelista puede hacer es callar él para trasmitir las palabras-testamento desde la cruz. Alguna vez-y puede ser : cristianos, discipulos de Cristo, alumnos permanentes de su enseñanza.

Domingo de Pascua

Jesús llega a nosotros y es conocido en el mundo como el Crucificado. La cruz es la ultima silueta en el horizonte de su vida mortal. Pudo parecer que alli habia acabado todo y que el triunfo de las fuerzas destructoras era definitivo. Son las mujeres, simbolo de la debilidad, las que anuncian lo contrario: la victoria de la vida. Van muy de mañana al sepulcro a rendir el último homenaje al cadaver, lo unico que les queda de Jesús, porque es la unica manera que les queda de permanecer en union con el.


Holy Saturday

We have joined together to remember the death of Jesus, our brother and redeemer. We make a pause for silence at mid day so we can see him, and hear him, because he always has something to say, new and important, even tho he breaks our mentality. We remember and live a story as if I were presente in that terrible death. This reflexion of the evangalist is more importante the the plastic surgeon, not as much as how he suffered but what he has transmitted. The best thing is for the evangelist to be quiet so he can transmit his testimony from the cross. Someday we can be, Christians, or disciples of Christ and permanent students of learning.

Easter Sunday

Jesus comes to us and is know as the Crucifide. The cross is the last shadow in the horizon of the mortal life. It may look like it all ended and that the destructive force was definite. Are the women, symbols of weakness, the ones who announce the contrary: the victory of life. They go very early in the morning to the tomb to pay tribute to the body, the only thing that is left is Jesus, because he is the only way they will continue in union with him.
