Strength Against Opposition

Fortaleza Ante la Oposición

In appointing Jeremiah to stand up to the people and announce the truth, God at the same time promised him the strength to do the job. “They will fight against you but not prevail over you, for I am with you” (Jeremiah 1:19). Jesus also faced opposition, right from the start. In his home town of Nazareth the people couldn’t accept the idea that someone from among their own could be God’s messenger. “[F]illed with fury,” they expelled Jesus from town and would have hurled him over the edge of the hill. “But Jesus passed through the midst of them and went away” (Luke 4:28, 30). Although the true prophet has strength from God, Saint Paul says there’s something even more important than suffering death for the sake of God’s word. “[I]f I hand my body over so that I may boast, but have not love, I gain nothing” (1 Corinthians 13:3).

Al apuntar a Jeremías para que se enfrente a la gente y anuncie la verdad, Dios le prometió al mismo tiempo que tendría la fortaleza para cumplir su cometido. “Te harán la guerra, pero no podrán contigo, porque yo estoy a tu lado para salvarte” (Jeremías 1:19). Jesús también se enfrentó a la oposición, desde el principio. En su pueblo natal de Nazaret la gente no podía aceptar la idea de que alguno de los suyos pudiera ser el mensajero de Dios: “Se llenaron de ira”, expulsaron a Jesús del pueblo y por poco lo desbarrancan, despeñándolo. “Pero él, pasando por en medio de ellos, se alejó de allí” (Lucas 4: 28, 30). Aunque el verdadero profeta es fortalecido por Dios, san Pablo dice que hay algo más importante que sufrir la muerte por la palabra de Dios pues “aunque me dejara quemar vivo, si no tengo amor, de nada me sirve” (1 Corintios 13:3).

News from the Padre/ Noticias de Nuestro Sacerdote Super Bowl Sunday has become, over the years, a quasi national holiday. It seems to be on par with the Fourth of July. An index of the impact of this celebration could be two things: the amount of media coverage leading up to the start of the “Big Game” and the amount of food consumed on Super Bowl Sunday. Super Bowl Sunday is second only to Thanksgiving. Reports are out that on game day this year, there will be a chicken wing shortage: it is estimated that 1.23 billion wings will be devoured this Sunday! Every little detail at the Super Bowl is heightened, hyped, and promoted weeks before the game. It does seem, however, that the halftime show and commercials are more important to some than the game itself. When it comes to game time, the actual singing of the National Anthem puts the whole crowd and television viewers everywhere into a frenzied state-of-religious mind, especially when the camera scrolls down the line showing football players honoring country and God. Singing the anthem has a similar feeling to singing our favorite Christmas carols in Church. Some people have begun to worry that sports in general, and football in particular, are taking over as the nation’s principal religion. Their arguments point out some interesting similarities. Two examples where sports can be compared to religion are: first, they both involve an elaborate set of rules and rituals, and second, both sports and religion do bring the community together. Parties abound – rich or poor, young or old, male or female – people do come together! Sports have that power to bind people together. Witness how the Super Bowl grabs or binds a village, city, or state when their team is in the Big Game. The word “religion” is derived from the Latin “religare” meaning “to bind.” As a sports fan, I see major scripture principles at work in sports. “As a body is one, though it has many parts and all the parts of the body, though many are one body…. If one part suffers, all the parts suffer; if one part is honored, all the parts share its joy.” (Paul to the Corinthians 12:12-30.) Teams that play as one unit, in concerted teamwork – even though they have many players – usually win. I see religion and sports alike in another way. Much to the chagrin of being a long-suffering Viking fan, it has helped me for crucial life experiences. Staying true to my team in good times and lean times makes me a loyal person. My religious beliefs call me to be loyal to Christ in good times and bad times. An obvious link between the two is the role of discipline in the life of an athlete and a person who follows Christ. And, consider the similarities in our vocabulary associated with both: dedication, sacrifice, commitment, suffering, and spirit. The Super Bowl has always been played on a Sunday. Isn’t it odd that the Big Game is played on the Sabbath? Another connection between religion and sports: Remember to keep Holy the Sabbath. That is the fourth commandment. Your team may win or lose the Super Bowl, but you never lose if you follow your Faithful Servant, Christ.

News from the Padre/ Noticias de Nuestro Sacerdote El domingo del Super Bowl se ha convertido a lo largo de los años, en una casi fiesta nacional. Parece estar a la par con el cuatro de julio. Un índice de los efectos de esta celebración puede ser dos cosas: la cantidad de la cobertura de los medios que conducen desde el inicio hasta el final del "Gran Juego" y la cantidad de alimentos que consumen el Domingo del Super Tazón. El domingo de Super Bowl es la segunda conmemoración más importante después de Thanksgiving. ¡Los informes son que en el día del juego, este año, habrá una escasez de alas de pollo: se estima que 1.23 billones de alas serán devoradas este domingo! Cada pequeño detalle del Super Bowl es mayor aún, de exagerado, y se promovió algunas semanas antes del juego. Parece que el espectáculo y los anuncios son más importantes para algunos que el propio juego. Cuando se trata del tiempo del juego, el canto del Himno Nacional pone a toda la multitud en la televisión, en todas partes los observadores frenético a pesar de su estado de conciencia religiosa, especialmente cuando la cámara se desplaza hacia abajo de la línea, mostrando los jugadores de fútbol honrar país y Dios. Cantar el himno tiene un sentimiento análogo a cantar nuestro favoritos villancicos en la Iglesia. Algunas personas han empezado a preocuparse por el hecho de que los deportes en general, y el fútbol en particular, se asumió como el principal de la nación en la religión. Sus argumentos señalan algunas interesantes similitudes. Dos ejemplos de que los deportes pueden compararse a la religión son: en primer lugar, ambos casos involucran un complejo conjunto de reglas y rituales, y en segundo lugar, tanto el deporte como la religión reúnen a la comunidad. ¡En la que abundan, ricos o pobres, jóvenes o viejos, hombres o mujeres, muchas personas se unen! Los deportes tiene el poder para "comprometer" a testigos que estén disponibles a comprometerse a un pueblo, a una ciudad o a un estado cuando su equipo se encuentra en el gran juego. La palabra "religión" viene del latín "religare", que significa "compromiso.” Como aficionado a los deportes, veo grandes escrituras y principios en el trabajo de los deportes. "Como un cuerpo es uno, aunque tiene muchas de las piezas y todas las partes del cuerpo, aunque son muchas, es un solo cuerpo…. Si una parte sufre, todas las partes sufren; si un miembro es honrado, todos los miembros se alegran." (Pablo a los Corintios 12:12 -30.) Los equipos que juegan como si fuera una unidad, concentrándose en el trabajo del equipo—a pesar de que tienen muchos jugadores, generalmente ganan todos. Puedo ver, la religión y los deportes, igual en otra forma. Muy a pesar de ser un largo sufrimiento de Vikingo, me ha ayudado a tolerar las cruciales experiencias de la vida. Fiel a mi equipo en tiempos buenos y épocas de escasez me hace una persona leal. Mis creencias religiosas me llaman a ser leal a Cristo en los tiempos buenos y malos momentos. Un vínculo evidente entre los dos es la disciplina en la vida del atleta y una persona que sigue a Cristo. Y, tengan en cuenta las similitudes de nuestro vocabulario relacionado con ambos: la dedicación, el sacrificio, el compromiso, el sufrimiento, y el espíritu. El Super Bowl siempre ha sido en un domingo. ¿No es de extraña el porque el gran juego no es jugado en Sábado? Otra conexión entre la religión y los deportes: honrarás el Sábado. Este es el cuarto mandamiento. Su equipo del Super Bowl puede ganar o perder, pero nunca se perderán si siguen al siervo fiel, Cristo. Pg. 7
