Epifanía: ¿Cuál de los reyes eres tú?

Eschucha mp3
La Epifanía del Señor: 6 Enero 2013
Is 60, 1-6; Sal 71; Ef 3, 2-3.5-6; Mt 2, 1-12

Hoy oímos la historia de tres reyes. Pero cuando digo “tres reyes,” no pienso en los magos, tradicionalmente numerados como tres, con los nombres de Gaspar, Melchor, y Baltasar. En cambio pienso en otro grupo de tres reyes—¡y tú mismo eres uno de ellos! Pero, ¿cuál eres?

El rey primero es el Señor Dios, que en el principio creó el cielo y la tierra; y todo era muy bueno. Pero entonces pecaron nuestros primeros padres, corrompiendo no sólo a todo ser humano sino también todo el universo. Pero Dios no nos dejaría en nuestra miseria caída; empezó a cumplir un gran proyecto para salvarnos. (more…)

Epiphany: Which king are you?

Listen to mp3 file
Epiphany of the Lord: Jan. 6, 2013
Isa 60:1-6; Ps 72; Eph 3:2-3, 5-6; Matt 2:1-12

Today we hear the tale of three kings. But when I say “three kings,” I’m not thinking of the magi, traditionally numbered as three and named Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthasar. It’s a different grouping I’m thinking of; and you are one of them! But which one?

The first king is the Lord God, who in the beginning created the heavens and the earth; and it was very good. But then our first parents sinned, corrupting not only all of the human race but indeed the entire universe. But God would not leave us to our fallen misery; he set into motion a great plan to save us. (more…)

God does not ask us to be successful, but to be faithful

Mal 3:19-20; Ps 98:5-9; 2 Thess 3:7-12; Luke 21:5-19

Looking at the Temple, Jesus said, “The days will come when there will not be left a stone upon another stone.” The Temple building and complex where he was standing were magnificent. King Herod the Great had started a great reconstruction and expansion of the Temple and indeed the Temple Mount itself some 46 years earlier [John 2:20], and at the time Jesus was standing there it wasn’t even complete yet. And so we hear that people around him were admiring the costly stones that they saw. How could it ever fall, in that kind of destruction? And yet Jesus was right. Just about 40 years after he said these words, the Roman forces were responding to the Jewish rebellion in the Holy Land, and they captured Jerusalem, and burned the Temple, and leveled the walls of the Temple and of the city, all the way down to the ground.
