A reflection on the Gospel for St. Peter and St. Paul

We are always interested in knowing what others think about us. Our children, even if they don’t say it, care a lot about what we think of them, since it is precisely what will form their identity. Who am I? If we respond to them with gestures or actions, which communicate that they are useless or inept. We sometimes do this unconsciously by not trusting their ability to do something, humiliating them over something they have done or ignoring their dreams. We can also communicate a very different image to our children through respect, honestly, trust and support. Peter and Paul meet Jesus at different times and it is then that the Lord tells them who they are in reality. Jesus did not recriminate them because of their defects, instead he entrusts them with his church and mission. In being recognized by Christ they found their true identity. Christ changes our name and informs us of our real identity but first we must come to recognize him. That way, renewed and recognized our own identity, we become the Body of Christ, the church.

Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del Domingo de San Pedro y San Pablo

A todos nos interesa bastante saber lo que otras personas piensan de nosotros. A nuestros hijos, aunque no lo digan, les importa mucho lo que pensamos de ellos, ya que es esto precisamente lo que va formando su indentidad. ¿Quién soy? Si damos la respuesta con palabras, gestos o acciones que les comunican que pensamos que son inútiles, incapaces e incapaces. Esto lo hacemos a veces inconscientemente, desconfiando de que puedan hacer algo, o avergonzádolos sobre algo que han hecho, o ignorando sus sueños. También les podemos comunicar una imagen muy distinta a través de nuestro respeto, honestidad, confianza y apoyo. Pedro y Pablo, en distintos momentos reconocen a Jesús. Es entonces cuando Jesús les dice a ellos quiíenes son de verdad. Es Jesús quien no los recrimina por sus defectos, sino que les confía su iglesia y su misión. Al ser identificados por Cristo, encuentran su verdadera idetidad. Pero tendremos que reconocerle primero. Así, renovados y reconociendo nuestra identidad, nos convertimos en Cuerpo de Cristo, Iglesia.

“El que no toma su cruz y me sigue no es digno de mi”

La division y la espada: Jesus entendia poco de propaganda. Los politicos, las firmas comerciales y la compañias internacionales lo entienden de otra manera. Todo consiste en prometer, halagar, prodigar elogios y faciles promesas. Menos horas laborales, subida de pensiones, empleo, nivel de vida, etc. Jesus no hace faciles promesasas ni concesiones, solo hace una gran promesa: la del resultado final de nuestra vida. Para llegar a El hay que disponerse al sacrficio, al esfuerzo, a la renuncia. En ninguna parte se dice que el programa de Jesus sea facil. Aunque si se asegura que es gratificante y en algunos casos desconcertantes. Cualquier Cristiano medianamente familiarizado con el Evangelio sabe que Jesus es autor, predicador, y reompensador de la paz. Que busca ademas una gran unidad con todos los redimidos para ofrecernos con el Padre. Hoy en cambio habla de division y espada. Ves que hay contradiccion?

“The one that does not carry his cross and follows me, is not worthy of me”

The division and the sword: Jesus understood some of the advertisement. The politicians, the commercial signatures, and the internacional companies, they undertood it differently. It all consist of making promises, show off, and false promises. Less work hours, raise the pensions, more jobs, cost of living, etc. Jesus does not make false promises, he only makes one big promise: the one that will result in living for ever. But to get there you have to make sacrificeses. No where does it say that Jesus program is easy. But it does assures us gratification. Any cristian familiar with the gospel knows that Jesus is an author, predictor, and recommends peace. He looks for a great unity with all the redeemers to offer them to our Father. Today he talks about division and the sword. See how there is contradiccion?
