Za 12, 10-11; 13, 1; Sal 62; Gal 3, 26-29; Lc 9, 18-24

Inmediatamente antes de la lectura del Evangelio de hoy leemos la historia de la alimentación de los 5000 que oímos hace tres semanas en la fiesta del Corpus Christi—cuando nuestro Señor Jesús estaba rodeado por una multitud grande y hambrienta de 5000 hombres, además de mujeres y niños, en un lugar remoto, y alimentó milagrosamente a todos ellos a partir de tan sólo cinco panes y dos peces.

Y después de esto, guio a sus discípulos aparte solos para orar. Porque tiene una pregunta muy importante para preguntar a ellos, y quiere que sean capaces de escuchar, no el ruido del mundo, sino la voz tranquila de su Padre, y del Espíritu Santo. (more…)

Zech 12:10-11, 13:1; Ps 63; Gal 3:26-29; Luke 9:18-24

Right before today’s Gospel reading comes the account of the feeding of the 5000 that we heard three weeks ago on the feast of Corpus Christi—when our Lord Jesus was surrounded by a great, hungry crowd of 5000 men, plus women and children, in a remote location, and he miraculously fed all of them starting with just five loaves of bread and two fish.

And after this, he took his disciples apart by themselves to pray. Because he has a very important question to ask them; and he wants them to be able to hear, not the din of the world, but the quiet voice of his Father and of the Holy Spirit. (more…)

Gn 14, 18-20; Sal 109; 1 Cor 11, 23-26; Lc 9, 11-17

Cuando yo era niño, y llegué a la edad de 10 años y medio, tuve la oportunidad de entrar en los Boy Scouts. Y, como todos los Scouts, aprendí lo que llamamos la Ley Scout: una declaración con 12 puntos, 12 características personales que deben caracterizar a un Boy Scout. Pero en esa primera tropa, también aprendimos un punto 13. Y así recitábamos: “Un Scout es: honrado, leal, servicial, amigable, cortés, bondadoso, obediente, alegre, económico, valiente, limpio, reverente… ¡y hambriento!”

¡Y, por supuesto, era la verdad! ¡Sí que los Boy Scouts tienen hambre! Y también otros jóvenes— (more…)

Gen 14:18-20; Ps 110; 1 Cor 11:23-36; Luke 9:11-17

When I was a boy, and I reached the age of 10½, I was able to join the Boy Scouts. And, like all Scouts, I learned what we called the Scout Law: a statement with 12 points, 12 personal characteristics that are to characterize a Boy Scout. But in that first troop, we also learned a 13th point. And so we would recite: “A Scout is: trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, reverent… and hungry!”

And, of course, it was true! Boy Scouts are hungry! And so are other youth— (more…)
