Reflexiones para la Homilía
Nadie puede pronosticar el futuro. Lo único que es seguro es que no sabemos qué va a
pasar. Pero en el evangelio, Jesús nos dice varias cosas acerca de la historia del mundo una vez
que su vida y ministerio terminen. El nos habla para consolarnos y darnos esperanza. El Señor
nos enseña lo necesario para continuar amando al Señor con todo nuestro corazón y a nuestro
prójimo como Dios nos ama.
Primero, El nos dice que mucha gente va a venir diciendo que el fin del mundo está cerca, que
nuestro tiempo aquí ya está terminando. No debemos de seguirlos. Ellos no saben cuándo va a
ser el fin del mundo. Nadie sabe con excepción de nuestro Padre en el cielo.
Segundo, El nos dice que van a haber guerras. En todas las edades ha habido gentes que no se
llevan y que pelean por más poder, más riquezas, más tierras, más libertades. Que difícil que es
amar como el Señor nos manda cuando nos peleamos entre nosotros. El Señor sabe que estos
conflictos van a suceder…nos debemos amar los unos a los otros aun enfrentados a ellos.
Finalmente nos dice que hay gente, incluyendo nuestra familia y amigos, que nos van a
perseguir. No hay nada fácil en ser un discípulo de Jesús. Así como San Pablo les dice a los
Tesalonicenses, debemos trabajar para nuestro bien y el de otros para que puedan experimentar
nuestro amor. Trabajar sin quejarse es un regalo precioso porque la tentación es de quejarse,
demandar y refunfuñar.
Que podamos trabajar para el Señor en su Reino y en este mundo. Que el alimento que
recibimos de El nos de fuerza para poder perseverar como gente de Dios… Una gente de
amor, clemencia y elegancia.
