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

A mother spend many nights without sleep, worrying about any illness or problem with one of her children. A father can anguish over the situation with his immigration status, the lack of employment or because the family’s economic situation seems to deteriorate even further and appears desperate. We work a lot and there are times when it seems our world is collapsing. What will become of us? The weigh of these things causes us to become depressed and feel abandoned by God. Or we may be confronting evil in many ways in our surroundings, such as envy, greed, lies and infidelity. In the soap operas we see that no matter how evil the characters are, how much they lie, and how much evil they cause in the end everything is revealed and innocence always triumphs. We know from the beginning of the story that it will end this way, but we always watch just to make sure evil does not triumph. Secretly, it seems as if we expect the same to happen in our own lives. But sometimes the situations we face are not immediately resolved or realized to our liking. But our faith tells us, in the end, everything hidden shall be revealed and God is on our side because we are more important to him than any of the creatures he cares for with so much love.

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

Una mamá puede pasar noches enteras sin dormir pensando ec una enfermedad o un problema de uno de sus hijos. Un padre de familia se podria angustiar por su situaación de inmigración, o porque le falta trabajo o porque la situación económica parece deteriorarse cada vez más y desesperada. Trabajando mucho y hay veces en que parece que el mundo se nos hecha encima. ¿Qué va a ser de nosotros? Puede que el peso de las cosas nos deprima y nos haga sentir abandonados de Dios. O puede que nos enfrentemos al mal en susu muchas maneras en que aparece a nuestro alrededor: envidias, ambiciones, mentiras, infidelidad. En las telenovelas vemos que, por muy malvadas que sean las personas y muy grandes las mentiras y el mal que hagan, al final todo se descubre y triunfa la inocencia. Lo sabemos desde el principio, pero queremos verlo hasta el final como para asegurarnos de que el mal no va a quedar vencedor. Secretamente, parece que esperamos que lo mismo ocurra en nuestra vida. Pero a veces las situaciones en las que estamos no se resuelven inmediatamente y a veces ni siquiera a nuestro gusto. Pero nuestra fe nos dice que, al final, todo lo que está escondido se revelará y que Dios está de nuestro lado porque somos más importantes para Él que todas las criaturas a las que cuida con tanto amor.

Year of St. Paul

On Saturday, June 28, we begin a special jubilee year dedicated to St. Paul. The Pauline year will run from June 28, 2008, to June 29, 2009, to mark the approximately 2,000th anniversary of the saint's birth. The Holy Father said that the church needs modern Christians who will imitate the apostle's missionary energy and spirit of sacrifice

St. Paul was born in Tarsus, in what is now Turkey, at the start of the Christian era, sometime between A.D. 7 and 10, according to church historians. After his conversion on the road to Damascus, he became one of the church's foremost evangelizers, first among Jews, then among Gentiles.

St. Paul's life holds a lesson for modern Christians. The pope said St. Paul's success as an evangelizer was not credited to skills as a speaker or to a "refined strategy" of missionary argumentation. His achievements had more to do with his extraordinary personal involvement in announcing the Gospel and his dedication to Christ, despite problems and persecutions.

St. Paul was totally committed to Christ. “He lived and worked for Christ; he suffered and died for him. How current is his example today," the Holy Father said.


El año de San Pablo

El sabado 28 de junio, comenzamos un nuevo año jubileo que esta dedicado a San Pablo. El año Paulino sera el 28 de junio hasta el 29 de junio del 2009, para marcar aproximadamente el aniversario 2,000 del nacimiento del Santo. El Santo Padre dice que la iglesia necesita Cristianos modernos que puedan imitar la energia y espiritu y sacrificio del apostol.

San Pablo nacio en Tarsus, donde es hoy Turquia, al comienzo de la era Cristiana, como alrededor de entre A.D. 7 y 10, segun la historia de la iglesia. Despues de su conversion en el camino a Damascus, el se hizo un fuerte evangalizador de la iglesia, primero entre los Judios y despues entre los gentiles.

La vida de San Pablo nos da una leccion de Cristianos modernos. El Papa dijo que el exito de San Pablo el evangelizador no era a cretado a su forma de hablar o su refinada estrategia como misionero. Sus logros tenia que ver con su extraordinario compromiso en anunciar el evangelio y su dedicacion a Cristo, a pesar de los problemas y persecuciones.

San Pablo esta completamente comprometido con Cristo. “El vivio y trabajo para Cristo; el sufrio y murio por el. Que tan al coriente esta su ejemplo hoy,” dice el Santo Padre.
