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

Film maker Ken Burns has chronicled some of our nation’s greatest heroes and achievements in his awardwinning PBS documentaries on Thomas Jefferson, the West, the Civil War, the Statue of Liberty, and baseball. In his research for his films, Ken Burns has discovered this about America: “Theirs is no other country on earth that is configured like ours. Every other nation is there because of race, religion, language, ethnicity or geography. We are here because we agreed to subscribe to the words of four pieces of paper - the U.S. Constitution. Unlike many other countries, which see themselves as an end unto themselves, we see ourselves as evolving. We’re not satisfied. We’re not willing to rest on our laurels. We think we can get better. We think we can get better. We think we’ve got someplace to go.” As Americans, we bind ourselves to one another through the Constitution in order to “establish justice, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessing of liberty for ourselves and our prosperity.” As disciples of Jesus, we are called to take on his “yoke” of humble, joyful service to one another as we journey together to the dwelling place of God. This Sunday on which we celebrate our nation’s 229th birthday calls us to recommit ourselves to our nation’s unique covenant to work together to establish a land of justice, peace and liberty; Christ, in this Sunday Eucharist, calls us to become his body for one another that we may establish his Kingdom in this time and place.

Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del Decimocuatro Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

El productor de películas Ken Burns he escrito sobre algunos de los héroes y los logros más grandes de nuestra nación en sus galardonados documentales del Canal PBS sobre Thomas Jefferson, el Oeste, la Guerra Civil, la Estatua de la Libertad y el Beisbol. En sus investigaciones para estas películas, Ken Burns ha descubierto lo siguiente sobre América: “No existe otro país en la tierra que se parezca al nuestro. Las demás naciones existen por su raza, religión, idioma, etnicidad o geografía. Nosotros estamos aquí porque acordamos subscribirnos a las palabras de las cuatro hojas de papel que forman la Constitución de los Estados Unidos. A diferencia de algunos paí ses, que se ven a sí mismos como un fin de ellos mismos, nosotros nos vemos como un país en evolución. No estamos satisfechos. No queremos descansar en nuestros laureles. Pensamos que podemos ser mejores. Que tenemos todavía mucho por hacer.” Como americanos, por medio de la Constitución estamos ligados los unos a los otros para “establescer justicia, tomar las medidas necesarias para la defensa común, promover el bienestar general, y asegurar la bendición de la libertad para nosotros mismos y nuestra prosperidad.” Como discípulos de Cristo, estamos llamados a tomar su “yugo” de humildad, servirnos alegremente los unos a los otros en nuestra jornada juntos hacia la morada santa de Dios. Este domingo, en el cual celebramos el cumpleaños 229 de nuestra nación, nos pide que nos comprometamos de nuevo al pacto original de nuestra nación, que es trabajar juntos para establecer una tierra de justicia, paz y libertad; Cristo, en la Eucaristía de este domingo, nos pide que seamos su cuerpo por los demás para que podamos establecer su Reino en este tiempo y lugar.
