XII Domingo Ordinario, Año C: 23 Junio 2013
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

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…)

3rd Sunday of Advent, Year B: Dec. 11, 2011
Isa 61:1-2, 10-11; Luke 1; 1 Thess 5:16-24; John 1:6-8, 19-28

John the Baptist is one of the great figures of the Advent season. For during this season we look toward Christ’s Second Coming; and who better to help us prepare for that than John the Baptist, who helped the people of the first century prepare for Christ’s first coming. And how did he do that? He preached repentance—change; a turning away from sinful thoughts and attitudes and actions inside and sinful actions outside—to prepare the way of the Lord.

But it wasn’t just in his words and his action of baptizing that John prepared for the Lord. He also did so by who he was. (more…)
