Jesus instructs his disciples to take this posture of confidence in the midst of a terribly disturbing situation. Describing his second coming, Jesus says that on seeing this event unfold, "People will die of fright." And yet the disciples are supposed to be pillars of strength. While others cower in fear, the Lord's followers are somehow immune, with heads raised high. Why? Well, presumably, because those who follow Christ--those who earn the distinction of being disciples--have nothing to fear. On the contrary, when they have to "stand before the Son of Man," it will be a happy occasion. But here's the catch: "disciple" is more than an empty title. If we want to be counted among this confident crew, there are a few things for us to do. Today's Gospel spells out these tasks, which are all perfect things to pursue during Advent. First, we have to make sure that our "hearts do not become drowsy." We are called to stay awake in a spiritual sense, not allowing "carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of daily life" to numb us. We need to avoid whatever might reduce our ability to recognize and relate to Jesus, because we don't want his appearance to catch us "by surprise like a trap." Advent is an ideal time to examine our lives to determine what activities, priorities, or pastimes might be putting our hearts to sleep. Secondly, we need to pray. We need to ask Jesus himself for "the strength to escape the tribulations that are imminent and to stand before the Son of Man." We can't do it alone. But with Christ's help, we can be true, fearless disciples. LPI, Inc. 1er Domingo de Adviento Hemos llegado al tiempo de Adviento y éste nos prepara para practicar el ejercicio de abrir los sentidos a la realidad que nos rodea. Es un tiempo para preguntarnos: ¿Qué realidad estamos viviendo? ¿Dónde debemos de encarnar al Hijo de Dios en esta Navidad que se acerca? Tomar nota de lo que se vive a nivel mundial, local y familiar es esencial para nuestra preparación. Observar, juzgar y actuar para descubrir qué cosas positivas del Reino hay que implementar en nuestra vida. Esto, por supuesto, choca con las realidades comerciales de la Navidad, sus preparativos muchas veces no son los que Dios tiene en su plan de salvación. "Pongan atención y levanten la cabeza". Es prepararse en sentido positivo, no gastar tanta energía en el consumismo sino estar prevenidos en las cosas que nos acercan a Dios. Comenzamos un nuevo año litúrgico, las próximas cuatro semanas están llenas de expectación. ¿Pero qué es lo que se espera? ¿A quién se espera? Para muchas personas quizá son las fiestas, las vacaciones, ver a la familia o esperar un regalo muy especial. Todas esas cosas son buenas no nos confundamos. Pero debemos de prepararnos para algo muy especial y se inicia en este Primer Domingo de Adviento. El nacimiento del Salvador del mundo. Detente, observa, calla, medita y centra tu vida en Jesús. San Pablo nos ayuda a entender este tiempo tan especial con la siguiente frase. "Que el Señor los llene y los haga rebosar de un amor mutuo y hacia todos los demás" (1 Tes 3, 12). ¿Sería mucho pedir crecer en el amor en esta primera semana de Adviento? LPI, Inc.
