Thirty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time - A, 2014
WEEKLY HOMILY / HOMILÍA SEMANAL
Thirty-Third Sunday OT/Trigésimo Tercer Domingo TO, Ciclo A
In today's Gospel, Jesus told the parable of a man whose words changed things for those
around him. The master called in his three servants, and with his words he entrusted each of them with
a sum of money to care for in his absence. When he returned the master called each man to account.
When the first and second servants announced they had each doubled their master's money, the master
said to each of them, "Well done, my good and faithful servant. Since you were faithful in small
matters, I will give you great responsibilities. Come; share your master's joy." The master's words
gave them praise and greater responsibilities and authority. When the third servant arrived with only
the money he had initially received, his master commanded, "Take the talent from him...and throw
this useless servant into the darkness outside where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth." The
master's words brought condemnation and punishment to the third servant. The master's words had
power. They could alter the situation of his servants. Yet the power of his words is nothing compared
to power of the words found in the celebration of the Mass and in the other liturgies of the Church. In
the Mass, we hear God's transforming word proclaimed in the scripture readings. We hear words that
have touched the lives of countless millions of people down through the ages. We hear how God
spoke through Moses and the prophets, and above all through Jesus, his Son, the Word made Flesh. In
the Mass we also hear the words, the voice, of the Church. The words that make up the prayers of the
Mass were carefully chosen by the Church, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to express what we
believe. There is a principle that says what the Church prays, is what the Church believes. That means
that if a person wants to know the Catholic faith, that person simply has to listen to the prayers of the
liturgy. How we pray, reveals what we believe.
En el Evangelio de hoy, Jesús nos cuenta una parábola sobre un hombre, que llamó a tres de
sus siervos y les encargó a cada uno una suma de dinero para que la cuidasen mientras él estaba
ausente. Cuando este Señor regreso de su viaje, llamo a sus tres criados para ver como o que habían
hecho con su dinero. Cuando el primero y el segundo le dijeron lo que habían hecho y logrado con su
dinero, el Señor de estos siervos les dijo:” ¡Bien hecho! Siervos buenos y fieles, como habéis sido
fieles en los asuntos pequeñitos, os daré mucho mas grandes responsabilidades. Venid y entrad en el
descanso de vuestro Señor.” Las palabras de este Señor, les dio a estos siervos alabanza, una mayor
responsabilidad y autoridad. Cuando llego el tercer siervo a rendir cuentas, y solo le llevó el dinero
que había recibido inicialmente, su Señor ordeno: “Quítenle el talento… y arrojen a este siervo inútil y
perezoso a fuera donde será el llanto y el rechinar de dientes.” Las palabras del Señor trajeron sobre
este siervo condenación y castigo. Las palabras de este Señor tenían poder, y podían alterar o cambiar
la vida de estos siervos. Ahora, en una situación similar a la de estos siervos, ¿Cómo actuaría yo?
¿Seria inteligente como los dos primeros, y ganaría más de lo que me habían encomendado, o seria
perezoso y miedoso y no haría nada? Por que esto es lo que vamos a escuchar un día, cuando se nos
llame a rendir cuentas al Señor Todopoderoso, haber, Oscar, ¿que has hecho con los talentos que te
deje en depósito hasta que volviera? Y que responderemos, lo haremos con alegría y seguridad,
sabiendo que hemos ganado más de lo que se nos había encomendado, o ¿estaremos en una situación,
un poco o mucho, embarazosas por miedo a no saber como responder? Este Evangelio nos llama hoy
a hacer un examen de conciencia profundó, y ver que hemos hecho con los talentos que Dios nos ha
dado, con todos esos bienes que Dios ha puesto en nuestras manos para hacer su nombre santo entre
las naciones. Que Dios me los bendiga a todos ustedes y a sus familias.

TODAY’S READINGS
First Reading — The woman who fears the LORD
is to be praised (Proverbs 31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31).
Psalm — Blessed are those who fear the Lord
(Psalm 128).
Second Reading — Brothers and sisters, you are
children of the light (1 Thessalonians 5:1-6).
Gospel — Since you were faithful in small
matters, I will give you great responsibilities
(Matthew 25:14-30 [14-15, 19-21]).

GET READY
The Letters of Paul to the Thessalonians are among his
earliest writings, and are driven by his belief and the belief
of the entire early Christian community that the return of
Christ was imminent. Therefore, to devote time or attention
to anything else was foolish.
As time progressed, this fervor receded a bit. Today we
may wonder, when we hear these readings about the coming end-times, if we should take them to heart. What should
we do when we hear that the day of the Lord will come
upon us “like a thief at night”? (1 Thessalonians 5:2) Does
this mean we are to stop our long-range goal-setting, get rid
of our yearly calendars and planners, or stop putting money
in the college education fund? Of course not. What it does
mean is that we need to change our lives, living like children of the light and illuminating the world around us with
the light of the gospel. Then, on that day, when the details
of our daily living become unimportant, we will be ready to
find our peace and security in Christ Jesus.
