A reflection on the Gospel for the Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

We work hard and strive to do the best for our family and in our job. We demonstrate kindness and charity toward others. We have not gotten anything for free; instead everything we have attained has been with great effort.. And that is the message we also transmit to our children. In our society nothing is free, therefore we assume that everything we have and achieve is deserved and belongs to us. In today’s Gospel, however, we are told to give for free what we received for free. Isn’t this old? What have we gotten for free? Undoubtedly, nothing material is free of charge; not even those promotional items that appear in advertising campaigns. Everything always has a price. Yet we have received a series of values instilled in us by our family at no cost. Some of the talents, which allow us to concentrate our efforts in the things we do have also been free, as are the qualities that allow us to associate with others. God has also given us his love for free. And we have received the greatest gift for free: the presence of Jesus accompanying us in our journey through life, releasing us from all that binds us, and from all evil and eternal death.

Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del Undecimo Domingo en el Tiempo Ordinario

Trabajamos muy duro. Nos esforzamos por hacer lo mejor para nuestra familia y en nuestro trabajo. Procuramos ser amables y caritativos con otras personas. Nadie nos da nada regalado, sino que todo se hace con mucho esfuerzo. Y así se lo comunicamos a nuestros hijos también. En esta sociedad no hay nada gratis. Por lo tanto, se nos hace que todo lo que tenemos y hemos logrado lo merecemos y es nuestro. En el evangelio de hoy, sin embargo, se nos dice que tenemos que dar gratis lo que hemos recibido gratis. ¿No está raro? ¿Qué hemos podido recibir gratis? Indudablemente, nada material se nos ha dado gratis. Ni siquiera los productos promocionales que aparecen en los anuncios. Todo tiene siempre un precio. Pero gratis si hemos recidido nuestra humanidad nuestra dignidad. Gratis hemos recibidouna serie de valores que nos ha inculcado nuestra familia. Gratis hemos recibido unos talentos que nos permiten hacer todo lo que luego hacemos con esfuerzo. Gratis hemos recibido unas cualidades que nos permiten relacionarnos con los demás. Gratis hemos recibido el amor de Dios. Y gratis hemos recibido el don más grande que es la presencia de Jesús entre nosotros, acompañándonos en nuestro caminar por esta vida y ofreciéndonos la liberación de todo lo que nos ata, del mal y de la muerte eterna.

Enviado para Sanar

En la primera lectura de este domingo, el amor tierno de Dios para sus elegidos de is Israel es conmovedor. Hablando con Moises en la montaña de Sinai, Dios menciona como libero a los Israelitas de la esclavitud y se ato a ellos por vida y amor. El usa palabras “como te fastidio arriba con alas de aguila” y “te traje asia mi”. No solamente Dios los libro de ser atados pero los trajo cerca de El para que se convertieran “su posesion muy especial que los demas”. Pues con este regalo, Dios no les pide nada solamente que sean como Dios honorable y que todos los sepan. En el Evangelio de este domingo, Jesús manda a sus apostoles en una mision: que bengan todos porque con el amor compasivo y sanacion “curara a los enfermos, levantara a los muertos, limpiara a los leprosos y sacara a los demonios”. En el bautizo nos hemos hecho como los Israelitas, los elejidos por Dios, los mas queridos de los demas. En el bautizo, fuimos enviados como los apostoles, para traer sanacion. Muchos en nuestra sociedad y en nuestra comunidad estan en necesidad de sanacion: heridas causan pecados, tal vez enfermedades y dolor y sufrimiento, sentimientos heridos causados por palabras que lastiman y indiferencias. Jesús vino a sanarnos y el manda sus dicipulos del pasado y de hoy, por medio de nosotros, para llevar sanacion a el mundo herido.

Sent to Heal

In the first reading this Sunday, God’s tender love for his chosen people of Israel is poignantly described. Speaking to Moses at Mount Sinai, God mentioned how He liberated Israelites l from slavery and bound himself to them in a covenant of life and love. He uses words like “how I bore you up on eagle’s wings” and “brought you to myself.” Not only did God release them from bondage but He brought them close to himself that they may become “his special possession dearer to me than all other people”. For this great gift, God asks nothing in return except to mirror God’s holiness and make it known to all. In the gospel of this Sunday, Jesus sends out his apostles on a mission: to bring to everyone God’s compassionate love and healing: “cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers and drive out demons.” In baptism, we have become like the Israelites, God’s chosen, dearer than anyone. In baptism, we have been sent, like the apostles, to bring healing. Many in our society and in our community are in need of healing: wounds caused sins, maybe also of illness and pain and suffering, wounded feelings caused by harsh words and indifference. Jesus came to heal and he sends out his disciples, in the past and today, through us, to bring healing to a wounded world.
