A reflection on the Gospel for Fifth Sunday of Easter

There are many things in our lives, work, and families that can make us lose our composure. Jesus tells us today not to lose our calm but to remain at peace. The road of life is filled with many highs and lows, problems and conflicts. There are times when we wished the journey would end or at least it could be make easier. But Jesus insists that we remain at peace and have no fear. He promises that at the end of this journey we will find a happier home, the house of God the Father. Jesus is the one man who has embarked on the entire journey—his and ours, here on earth, with faithfulness and love, leaving behind the footprints that lead us safely to the house of the Father. What are these footprints? They are the words of love and compassion. Countless people have made it simply by following the footprints of Jesus. They have followed his footprints by proclaiming love and hope, with compassion toward others and fighting for justice. They have made it and there wait for us. This is the reason for our hope and for the spirit to continue on our journey.


Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del Quinto Domingo de Pascua

Hay muchas cosas en nuestra vida, en el trbajo y en la familia que podrían hacernos perder la calma. Hoy Jesús nos dice que no perdamos la calma, que estemos en paz. En el camino de la vida hay muchos altibajo, muchos problemas y conflictos y a veces querríamos que ya se acabara el camino, o que se nos hiciera más fácil. Pero Jesús nos insiste: tengan paz, no teman. Él nos promete que el fin del camino es la casa más feliz, el hogar del Padre Dios. Jesús ha sido el hombre que ha recorrido el camino—el suyo y el nuestro, aquí en la tierra, con fidelidad y amor y nos ha dejado huellas que nos guiarán con seguridad hasta la casa del Padre. ¿Cuáles son esas huellas? Las de las obras de amor y la compasión. Han seguido las huellas de Jesús anunciando el amor y la esperanza, teniendo compasión hacia los demás, luchando por la justicia. Ellos han llegado y allí nos esperan. Y esto es la razón de nuestra esperanza y de nuestro ánimo para seguir caminando.
