CHRIST, THE KING The selection from the book of Daniel presented in today’s first reading was part of an attempt to weave a vision of ultimate success for the Jews under persecution. Exactly whom the author had in mind when he refers to “one like a Son of Man” is hotly disputed by scholars today. The fact is, we simply do not know if the author meant anyone in particular or if this is a collective, figurative image of Israel’s triumph. What we do know is that the early Christian community seized upon this passage and recognized it as a messianic prophecy, a foretelling of the ultimate triumph of Jesus as the Christ of God. The Lectionary’s juxtaposition of this text with today’s Gospel narrative of Jesus before Pilate is a wonderful example of how the liturgy “layers” passages with new meaning by inserting them in a particular context. The celebration of Christ the King allows us to hear these passages with a new depth of meaning in light of our contemporary understanding of how, in Jesus and his resurrection and ascension, we have seen the fulfillment of Daniel’s vision of ultimate deliverance. The veiled admission of Jesus before Pilate that he did indeed have a kingdom “not here” takes on new meaning against the cosmic vision of Daniel, who allows us to glimpse the “Ancient One” on his heavenly throne.

Nuestro Señor Jesucristo, Rey del Universo 25 de noviembre de 2012 Gracia y paz a ustedes, de parte de Jesucristo, el testigo fiel, el primogénito de los muertos, el soberano de los reyes de la tierra. — Apocalipsis 1:5 Domingo 34 Tiempo Ordinario. Jesucristo Rey del Universo. Noviembre 25 2012 Reflexionando la Palabra de Dios Si miramos la realidad, nos podremos dar cuenta que lo que reina en el mundo es el dinero, el tener, el placer, y el darse la buena vida -vivir como un rey, como se dice-. Reina el que sabe estar al lado de los que mandan y deciden; reina el que domina al pobre e indefenso. Hoy, sin embargo, la Iglesia proclama la realeza de Cristo. Su reino no es de este mundo, pero se construye en este mundo. Es un Rey humilde que sirve y lava los pies a sus discípulos. Su reino no tendrá fin. Sus armas son la misericordia y el perdón, la verdad y la cruz. Quien quiera pertenecer a su reino debe ser como el grano de trigo que muere, crece, se hace espiga y da fruto abundante. La Iglesia celebra la festividad de Jesucristo Rey del Universo mirando al Final de los Tiempos, cuando Dios enviará a su Hijo para que venga por nosotros y nos convoque para contemplar el Amor de Dios. Cuando hablamos de Jesucristo como "Rey" no se dice en un sentido como lo podamos entender nosotros actualmente, de prestigios, privilegios y primeros puestos. Su reinado es la alternativa al mundo en el que vivimos. No es un construirlo de nuevo sino transformarlo y renovarlo. Él nos presenta un estilo de vida que tropieza con el sentido actual de los reinados del mundo, su reinado es desde el servicio, ante el poder, desde la humildad, ante el éxito y desde la pobreza, ante la riqueza. Cuando Jesús dice que su reino "no es de este mundo" nos está diciendo que no se rige por las normas del mundo. Su ser rey no es desde el dominio, la imposición, la fuerza, la rivalidad y la ambición, sino que se pone en y al servicio, busca vivir la verdad, la justicia, la paz, la libertad, la igualdad, todo desde el Amor. La diferencia del reinado de Jesús con los del mundo está en el estilo de vida y de los valores basados en el amor. Celebramos que Cristo no es el rey de un territorio sino que quiere ser el rey de nuestras vidas, de nuestro ser, de nuestro obrar. Que quiere ser el empuje y motor de todos nosotros, desde nuestra opción libre por Él. Y es así como el YA, el AHORA del reinado de Dios se hace presente. Su reinado está basado en el amor, siendo este el gran mensaje para toda la humanidad.

P. Jairo Para pensarlo Afirmar que Cristo va a venir hoy puede resultar en una falsa alarma, pero creer que podría ser así y que tendremos que rendirle cuentas nos motivará a vivir para Él. Planifica como si faltaran muchos años para el regreso de Cristo, pero vive como si viniera hoy.

¡Muchas gracias por sus contribuciones a la Colecta para la Campaña Católica para el Desarrollo Humano (CCHD)! Sus generosos donativos ayudará a CCHD a erradicar la pobreza en América mediante una mejor educación, mejores viviendas y desarrollo económico. Por medio de CCHD y de sus beneficiarios, ponemos de manifiesto la enseñanza social católica y realizamos la misión de Jesús de “llevar buenas nuevas a los pobres. . .anunciar la libertad a los cautivos y a los ciegos que pronto van a ver, despedir libres a los oprimidos” (cf. Lc 4:18). BAZAR DE NAVIDAD PARA NIÑOS 2 de diciembre, 2012 8:30am - 3:00pm - Salón St. Michael ¡Buenos regalos a bajo precio!

25 de noviembre de 2012 TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE En 1917 México recibió una nueva Constitución en la cual se estableció una política de intolerancia religiosa, especialmente en contra de la Iglesia Católica Romana. Con el pasar de los años las normas anticlericales fueron puestas en vigor hasta el punto que algunos mexicanos piadosos y cristianos decidieron defender su religión. En marzo de 1925 estos mexicanos católicos fundaron la Liga Nacional para la Defensa de la Libertad Religiosa, en el mismo mes en que el papa Pío XI proclama la Fiesta de Cristo Rey, celebrada el último domingo del año litúrgico. Inspirados por el grito de “¡Viva Cristo Rey!”, los fieles se convirtieron en Cristeros, muchos de los cuales dieron su vida por Cristo, demostrando así que Jesús es verdaderamente el Rey de sus vidas. La Cristiada duró sólo tres años en México y muchos sacerdotes, religiosas, religiosos, laicas y laicos dieron su vida para la gloria de Cristo Rey en México. Con el tiempo muchos cristianos y cristianas han debido repetir el martirio de los Cristeros en países de Centro y Sudamérica. El siglo XX derramó mucha sangre cristiana en Latinoamérica. “¡Viva Cristo Rey!” —Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co. Colecta de Alimentos Mensual El próximo fin de semana tendremos nuestra colecta de alimentos. Todo lo que se reúna se donará al Banco de Alimentos de la Iglesia Luterana de Our Savior. Le damos las gracias por su generosidad y su continuo apoyo.

DIALOGO MATRIMONIAL MDS Somos un movimiento de nuestra Iglesia Católica cuyo objetivo principal es apoyar a las parejas y matrimonios en sus luchas por fortalecer las tres relaciones principales de todo matrimonio: su relación con Dios, su relación de pareja, y la relación con sus hijos. Para lograr ese objetivo realizamos 6 retiros al año. Nos reunimos todos los viernes, donde tratamos, a la luz de la palabra de Dios, y del catecismo de nuestra Iglesia, los temas que crean mayores conflictos en la relación de toda pareja. Los invitamos a nuestro último retiro del año, el 7, 8 y 9 de diciembre. Los esperamos todos los viernes a las 7:30pm en el salón St. Francis. Nuestro lema es: “No es necesario cambiar de pareja, sino de actitud”. Para más información comuníquese con Dante y Lecy Sanchez al 813-850-4526 o Werther y Tomasina Taylor 813-598-5226.
