HOPE AND FORGIVENESS There were some interesting conceptions of sin prevalent in the time of the Hebrew scriptures. There was the belief that God punished sin immediately. Those who suffered disease or misfortune were, therefore, sinners getting their due from the Almighty. Today's first reading hints at another kind of God. When David admits his sin, Nathan declares, "The LORD on his part has forgiven your sin" (2 Samuel 12:13b). Here was not a vengeful God but a merciful God. What good news that must have been to David and those who, like him, could be honest enough to admit their sinfulness! Jesus is the good news of God's mercy and forgiveness incarnate. Without Jesus, perhaps the Good News would have been too good to believe, too difficult to imagine. But there he is in today's Gospel, the God-man, forgiving a sinner and declaring that she is forgiven because of her great love. There is hope, then, for the rest of us sinners, if only we love enough! Copyright (c) J. S. Paluch Co.

A week ago Fr. Tom Morgan, pastor of St. Lawrence Parish and loved by many at Incarnation, underwent emergency surgery to repair a perforation in his colon caused by diverticulitis. In a message to his community at St. Lawrence, Fr. Tom states “ Recovery after colon surgery is certainly not easy, but I am doing well and improving each day. I will have a colostomy for about three months while my colon heals. ...After I am released from the hospital, I will likely go to my mother’s home to recover for a short time. I am hopeful that I will be back in the parish for a short while at the end of June prior to my annual vacation in July.”

Undécimo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario 16 de junio de 2013 Vivo, pero ya no soy yo el que vive, es Cristo quien vive en mí. — Gálatas 2:20 Domingo 16 de Junio. Domingo 11 Tiempo Ordinario Reflexionando la palabra de Dios La palabra de Dios nos habla repetidamente del perdón de Dios que sale al encuentro de los hombres. Un perdón tan generoso que no puede menos que conmover nuestro corazón y despertar en nosotros una admiración agradecida. La verdadera grandeza de nuestro Dios está en su misericordia para con el hombre pecador. La misericordia de nuestro Señor es más grande que nuestro pecado, porque es el Señor de la vida y del amor. Si el pecado es soledad y rechazo de la vida, sólo Dios, que está muy por encima del pecado, puede volver a la alegría y a la plenitud de la vida. Hemos de entender, que el pecado es rechazo a la amistad con el Dios de la vida en el amor. Por eso el pecado es la muerte del hombre, es aislamiento y soledad que frustra la vocación y el destino que Dios ha señalado a cada uno desde la creación. Esta vocación y este destino están precisamente en Dios, pues por eso nos hizo a imagen y semejanza suya. De esta manera, podemos entender el pecado como el rechazo a la vida plena, que es Dios. Nuestra vida en Dios es apertura a su llamado, es comunión permanente con el Dios del amor y fuente de la vida, porque antes que otra cosa, el hombre es apertura al otro, especialmente al totalmente Otro que es Dios. De manera que cuando el hombre se cierra a Dios no queda todo allí, sino que siendo primordialmente “un ser para el otro”, otro cualquiera podrá ocupar el lugar de Dios. Y ese otro cualquiera puede ser el mismo hombre encerrado en sí mismo, es decir, en su egoísmo, en sus ambiciones o bien en el dinero que corrompe todo, en el poder entendido no como servicio sino como autoritarismo o prepotencia, o, en fin, en el placer como un bien en sí mismo que exige todo y hace esclavos. Todo esto, no es vida sino muerte. Cuando Dios nos perdona nos vuelve a la vida, ya que por el pecado habíamos muerto. Y sólo Dios puede perdonar porque sólo Él puede devolver la vida. Tenían razón los comensales en el evangelio, cuando escandalizados decían ¡sólo Dios puede perdonar los pecados! Lástima que no fueron más allá y no reconocieron en Jesús el rostro misericordioso del Padre. P. Jairo

DECALOGO DEL PADRE Amarás a tu hijo con todo tu corazón, alma y fuerzas, pero sabiamente con tu cerebro. 2. Verás en tu hijo una persona, y no un objeto de tu pertenencia. 3. No le exigirás amor y respeto, sino que tratarás de ganártelos. 4. Cada vez que sus actos te hagan perder la paciencia, traerás a la memoria los tuyos, cuando tenías su edad. 5. Recuerda que tu ejemplo será más elocuente que el mejor de tus sermones. 6. Piensa que tu hijo ve en ti un ser superior; no lo desilusiones. 7. Serás en el camino de su vida una señal que le impedirá tomar rumbos equivocados. 8. Le enseñarás a admirar la belleza, a practicar el bien y a amar la verdad. 9. Brindarás atención a sus problemas cuando consideres que puedes ayudar solucionarlo. 10. Le enseñarás con tu palabra y con tu ejemplo a amar a Dios sobre todas las cosas. 1.

ORACIÓN ORACION DE UN HIJO POR SU PADRE Señor, te agradezco por el padre que me diste y que tanto admiro. Haz que siempre lo ame más y que él se sienta amado. Auméntale las alegrías y no permitas que yo, para él, me convierta en un peso. Ayúdame a aliviar sus horas de cansancio y preocupaciones, para que pueda servirle de "Cirineo". No dejes, Señor, que los desengaños le hagan decaer o que el desánimo le domine. Ayúdale a enfrentar, con renovado coraje, sus responsabilidades y a actuar frente a ellas de la mejor manera posible. Que él sea firme y severo cuando sea necesario, sin dejar de ser bueno. Que no se pierda en la impaciencia, sino que sepa perdonar mis flaquezas. Que yo no repare en sus defectos, Señor, sino en sus cualidades y que sepa no sólo admirar sus buenos ejemplos, sino también imitarlo, especialmente cuando a mi vez tenga mis propios hijos. Consérvalo, Señor, en tu amor y que nuestra familia, viviendo ahora unida bajo tus cuidados y bendiciones, pueda también vivir unida en el cielo, para cantar tu nombre. Amen.

¡FELICIDADES PADRES EN SU DIA!

Para pensarlo PEQUEÑECES PASAJERAS Olvida las contrariedades recientes para no seguir fastidiándote con ellas. Si archivas en tu memoria las molestias pasadas, te atormentaras al recordarlas. La mejor manera de olvidar las incomodidades que te causan los otros es perdonándolos de corazón. Quien ama perdona. Quien perdona de verdad olvida. Quien olvida la ofensa, alivia su corazón. El perdón es fuente de salud física, de armonía mental y de profundo bienestar espiritual. “Aprende a vivir bien y sabrás morir bien” —(Confucio)

El 26 de junio, 2013 el grupo Feeding America estará con su dispensa móvil en los terrenos de la Iglesia Encarnación cargado de bolsas pre-empaquetadas de artículos no perecederos junto con galones de leche, jugo de frutas, carnes, verduras frescas y mesas llenas de artículos de panadería. Aproximadamente de 250 a 300 familias se beneficiaran de este evento con una variedad de comestibles—suficiente para proporcionar una comida por día para una familia de cuatro por una semana. La despensa móvil estará disponible de 9am - 11am. La distribución será sobre una base de orden de llegada. Se necesitan voluntarios para ayudar con la distribución. Si usted conoce a alguien que pueda ayudar por favor comuníquese con Marilyn Ruggiero al 813-545-7265 o mkrol@aol.com.

Retiros “La Viña de Raquel” La Viña de Raquel nos ofrece un lugar seguro donde se logra reconstruir y redimir los corazones rotos por motivo de un aborto. Allí se ofrece un ambiente confidencial donde no se le juzga, y donde hombres y mujeres pueden expresarse y reconciliar aquellas emociones que han suscitado después de un aborto, y así comenzar el proceso de renovación y sanación. Estos retiros se llevan a cabo en el Bethany Center y está abierto a la participación de todos aquellos que han sufrido el impacto de la decisión de un aborto—sea hombre, mujer, abuelos, amistades, o hijos (as). El próximo retiro en ingles será el 2 - 4 de agosto, 2013. Para más información comuníquese con Emma Boe al 813-924-4173 o para ayuda en español llame al 813-500-9875 y pregunte por Rosa.
