Sunday Scripture Reflections

1st Reading

Isaiah 49:3,5-6

The Prophet speaks of the Servant’s prophetical mission, namely to rise up the tribes of Israel, who were downtrodden in Babylonian slavery. The Church replies this poem to Jesus Christ, God’s Servant, whose mission it is to raise up you and me when we are depressed. That is what a friend does for a friend!

2nd Reading 1 Corinthians 1:1-3 Paul sends his greetings to “the church of God that is in Corinth!” We are members of the universal Church, which is realized in our own congregation. We should not be narrow-minded and identify our own congregation with the universal Church.


John 1:29-34

Domingo Escritura Reflexions

Primera lectura

Isaías 49:3,5-6

El Profeta habla de la misión profética del Siervo, es decir, a levantarse de las tribus de Israel, quienes fueron pisoteados en la esclavitud babilónica. La Iglesia responde este poema a Cristo Jesús, el siervo de Dios, cuya misión es elevar a usted y a mí, cuando estamos deprimidos. Eso es lo que hace de un amigo de un amigo! Segunda lectura

1 Corintios 1:1-3

Pablo envía sus saludos a "la Iglesia de Dios que está en Corinto!" Somos miembros de la Iglesia universal, que se realiza en nuestra propia congregación. No debemos ser mezquinos e identificar nuestra propia congregación con la Iglesia universal.

Evangelio Juan


This Gospel reading tells us about who the Lord Jesus is and about the process of getting to know him more intimately. Jesus is “The Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world” : Christ, our Passover sacrifice! He is great, greater than John the Baptist himself: He is to baptize with the Holy Spirit.

Esta lectura del evangelio nos narra que Jesús es el Señor y sobre el proceso de llegar a conocerlo más íntimamente. Jesús es "el Cordero de Dios que quita el pecado del mundo": Cristo, nuestra Pascua sacrificio! Él es grande, mayor que Juan el Bautista: él mismo es bautizar con el Espíritu Santo.

Jesus is God’s chosen one. Do you recognize the Lord as such in your life? Pray that you may see for yourself as John the Baptist did with the help of God.

Jesús es el elegido de Dios. ¿Eres tu capaz de reconocer al Señor como tal en tu vida? Oremos para que usted pueda ver por sí mismo como Juan el Bautista hizo con la ayuda de Dios.

Pray also that God may help you to recognize the Lord Jesus, to see him as a beautiful person, a friend.

También oramos para que Dios pueda ayudarnos a reconocer al Señor Jesús, para verlo como a una hermoso persona y amigo. 214-3

For 26 million people, hunger is already a thing of the past. Connection Counts Here at home, they carry out the social mission of the Church with 8.5 million Catholics in 14,337 parishes, dioceses and schools through programs such as CRS Rice Bowl, and CRS Fair Trade.
