Jer 33:14-16; Ps 25; 1 Thess 3:12–4:2; Luke 21:25-28, 34-36

Today we begin the new Church Year. And we know that the two greatest feast days of the year—the two poles on which the whole year hangs—are Christmas and Easter. Christmas, which celebrates the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus—that God the Son took on human nature, and became man—and was born for us, a baby in Bethlehem; and Easter, which celebrates his passion, death, and resurrection:  all of this to save us! And we celebrate these two feasts not only as single days but as the beginnings of the Christmas season and Easter season; and in both cases we prepare for them with special seasons of preparation.

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…)
