INCARNATION SCHOOL

FAMILIAR INSIGHTS Spiritual teachers tend to repeat themselves, and to repeat other teachers. Maybe there really aren’t that many different truths to tell. Just a lot of slow, sleepy human beings—like us—who need to hear the basics over and over. Consider today’s readings. People complain God isn’t “fair,” and Ezekiel answers that God is more than fair. People choose their own fates, and people can change. Even evildoers can turn, do right, and live. “Actions speak louder than words.” A fresh new insight? Hardly. Paul tells the Philippians that he would truly be encouraged if those who claimed to be believers would, in fact, look to others’ interests and not their own. “The proof of the pudding is in the eating.” A novel idea? I don’t think so. In Jesus’ story of the farmer and his sons, everyone knows that the one who said he wouldn’t work—but did—is way ahead of the one who said he would work— but didn’t. “Talk is cheap.” Heard that before? © Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.

Liturgical Bits & Bytes

Receiving Communion

Receiving communion is at the heart of every Eucharist that we celebrate. When we receive the Body or the Blood of Christ, our response is the same: “Amen.” It is our way of saying, “Yes, I believe!” “Yes, I will try to be the presence of the Lord with the nourishment of this gift.” A few simple steps might help receive the Lord with greater reverence: 1) If you wish to receive the consecrated bread on the tongue, your folded hands communicate this to the minister. Extend your tongue after you have made the response, “Amen"; 2) If you wish to receive in the hand, then your hands should be held in front of you, one under the other so that they form a throne to receive the host. With your bottom hand take the host and place it in your mouth; 3) Do not try to take the host from the one who is ministering, but allow the minister to place it on your hand; 4) If you are receiving from the chalice, take the cup firmly in both hands from the minister.

Reflexiones para la homilía:

S

i Dios es siempre compasivo, ¿Para que hacer las cosas bien? Es lo mismo que dirían los niños si vieran que sus acciones no tienen consecuencias, ni para bien ni para mal. Si un niño desobedece y sus padres no hacen ni dicen nada y continúan plegándose a sus caprichos, el niño sabrá que puede seguir haciendo lo que le venga en gana. Si nosotros mismos hiciéramos mal nuestro trabajo diario y no hubiera consecuencias, seguiríamos cada vez peor. Si un esposo o esposa es infiel pero el otro decide no mirar y hacer como si no pasara nada, el infiel continuará en sus malas mañas. ¿Qué madurez hay en todo esto? ¿Qué tipo de verdadero amor? Existe una gran diferencia entre la lógica matemática de pura norma y la lógica del amor de Dios. En lógica de Dios no es que no importe lo que uno haga, sino el amor con que lo haga. Se puede estar haciendo solo de apariencia. Eso no tiene ningún mérito delante de Dios. O puede que alguien ande alocado y perdido en la vida, pero de pronto tenga una luz sobre su conducta y decida arrepentirse y regresar. Eso, hecho con amor, conquista el corazón de Dios, como conquistaría el corazón de una madre. No son los derechos adquiridos por los que se hacen las cosas según Dios, sino por el amor que fluye de Dios a nosotros y que nos da vida. Cristo no se aferro a su derecho, sino a su profundo amor por su Padre y eso lo llevó a la obediencia más radical. La obediencia mecánica, sin amor, no tiene sentido. Es simplemente una negación de la propia libertad y al final acaba de alejar de Dios en lugar de acercarse. La obediencia con amor es la mejor afirmación de libertad. Se hacen las cosas no porque tengan o no consecuencias negativas, sino porque amamos. Y esa es la lógica de Dios.

27 de septiembre ♦ San Vicente de Paúl Se distinguió por su lucha contra las miserias físicas y morales de su tiempo en Francia. Sacerdote amado y amable, fue apreciado también por los no creyentes, ya que atendía a presos, niños abandonados y víctimas de la guerra y la miseria. ¿Qué necesidades hay a tu alrededor por las que puedas trabajar?

ENSEÑANZAS FAMILIARES Los maestros espirituales suelen repetir sus enseñanzas, y repetir las de otros maestros. Quizás no existen muchas verdades diferentes que decir. Sólo muchos seres humanos lentos y aletargados, como nosotros, que necesitan oír lo básico una y otra vez. Considera, por ejemplo las lecturas de hoy. La gente se queja de que Dios no es “justo” y Ezequiel responde que Dios es más que justo. Las personas eligen su propio destino, y las personas pueden cambiar. Hasta los malhechores pueden cambiar de rumbo, hacer lo que es justo, y vivir. “Los hechos valen más que las palabras”. ¿Un nuevo discernimiento? Para nada. Pablo dice a los filipenses que lo llenarían de alegría si los que claman ser creyentes, de hecho, buscan el interés de los otros y no el propio. “Obras son amores y no buenas razones”. ¿Una idea novedosa? No lo creo. En el relato de Jesús del viñador y sus dos hijos, todos saben que el que dijo que no trabajaría, pero lo hizo le lleva la delantera al que dijo que trabajaría, pero no lo hizo. “Fácil es hablar”. ¿Ya lo oíste antes? © Copyright, J.

NUESTRA CULTURA El respeto a los mayores es un valor muy central en la cultura hispana. Pero también lo es la obediencia de hacer lo que se ha pedido. ©NUESTRA PARROQUIA, 2011
