A reflection on the Gospel for The Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jesus said to his disciples: “The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field, which a person finds and hides again, and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls. When he finds a pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it. (Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net thrown into the sea, which collects fish of every kind. When it is full they haul it ashore and sit down to put what is good into buckets. What is bad they throw away. Thus it will be at the end of the age. The angels will go out and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. “Do you understand all these things?” “They answered, “Yes.” And he replied, “Then every scribe who has been instructed in the kingdom of heaven is like the head of a household who brings from his storeroom both the new and the old.”)

Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del Décimoseptimo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

.En aquel tiempo, Jesús dijo a sus discípulos: “El Reino de los cielos se parece a un tesoro escondido en un campo. El que lo encuentra lo vuelve a esconder y, lleno de alegría va y vende cuanto tiene y compra aquel campo. El Reino de los cielos se parece también a un comerciante en perlas finas que, al encontrar una perla muy valiosa, va y vende cuanto tiene y la compra. (También se parece el Reino de los cielos a la red que los pescadoresechan en el mar y recoge toda clase de peces. Cuando se llena la red, los pescadores la sacan a la playa y se sientan a escoger los pescados; ponen los buenos en canastos y tiran los malos. Lo mismo sucederá al final de los tiempos: vendrán los ángeles, separarán a los malos de los buenos y los arrojarán al horno escendido. Allí será el llanto y la desesperación. ¿Han entendido todo esto?” Ellos le contestaron: “Si”. Entonces él les dijo: “Por eso, todo escriba intruido en las cosas del Reino de los cielos es semejante al padre de familia, que va sacando de su tesoro cosas nuevas y cosas antiguas”.)

The Gold-seekers

Real life situations in Southern American countries serve to illustrate today’s gospel message. The indigenous people dig the earth in search of gold. If one makes a lucky strike and hit on the precious metal, then poverty, the main problem of life, is solved. In more advanced countries, the land itself can turn into a treasure. There’s vast tract of land, arid and dry that is practically worth nothing. But when development comes to the place and there’s plan to build roads, the value of the land soars. The shrewd businessman who senses this buys the land at dirt price from the unsuspecting original owner and sells the same for a fortune. Both stories speak about the gospel: where the treasure is, there lies great success. We find God in faith, alive and personal. The lucky indigenous person or the shrewd businessman is the one who discovers God in all of life and in personal love. It is a strike of grace that transforms the whole life.

Los buscadores de oro

Escenas de la vida real en algunos países de América sirven de comentario vivo al evangelio de hoy. Los indios del lugar palean la grava de la corriente en busca del esplendor dorado de una pepita de oro. Si un golpe de suerte pone en la pala un trocito del precioso metal, queda resuelto el problema de la pobreza, que es el problema de la vida. En países más sofisticados nos sirve de soporte la especulación. Hay amplios campos de barbecho que no valen nada. Pero si hay un soplo de influencias sobre proyectos de urbanización de ese campo o trazados de carreteras… los avisados compran el campo por nada y en pocas horas lo revenden por una fortuna. Para los no iniciados, la compra del terreno es un sin sentido; para el hombre sagaz es un gran negocio. De eso mismo nos habla el evangelio donde el tesoro oculto, el gran negocio; es Dios encontrado en la fe viva y personal. Los indios afortunado o el hombre sagaz en sus negocios es todo aquel que descubre en Dios el todo de la vida y como un amor personal: en un golpe de gracia que trastorna toda la vida.
