Psalm 80
My Dear People,
With the new liturgical year we will focus
primarily on the Gospel of Mark in our Sunday Liturgy. This Gospel is believed to be the earliest and
briefest description of the life of Christ and its title,
THE BEGINNING OF THE GOOD NEWS OF
JESUS CHRIST”. The whole text is only the beginning of the story which continues to unfold into our
own time. Because it is so brief, only 16 chapters, it
can be read straight through, but like a fine liqueur or
chocolate, it deserves to be savored in small amounts.
I want to encourage you to consider reading a short
passage, perhaps with your morning or evening meal
for some very lively table discussion with the family.
This practice will also help you to become aware of
how this same GOOD NEWS is unfolding in our own
lives.
Unlike any other reading, when the Scriptures are
read, God also speaks. May we allow the Word of
God to have ample space in our day that we may live
lives that are both inspired and empowered by that
Word.
Fr. John
Mis Queridos Feligreses,
Con el nuevo año litúrgico nos centraremos
principalmente en el Evangelio de Marcos en nuestra
liturgia dominical. Este Evangelio se cree que es la
descripción más temprana y más breve de la vida de
Cristo y de su título, “EL COMIENZO DE LA BUENA NUEVA DE JESUCRISTO ". Todo el texto es
sólo el comienzo de la historia que continúa desarrollándose en nuestro propio tiempo. Debido a que es
tan breve, sólo 16 capítulos, que se pueden leer rápidamente, pero como licor fino o chocolate, que merece ser saboreado en pequeñas cantidades. Quiero animar a que consideren la lectura de un pasaje corto, tal
vez con su desayuno de la mañana o por la noche para
algunos para una conversación muy animada en la
mesa con la familia. Esta práctica también le ayudará
a tomar conciencia de cómo esta misma BUENAS
NOTICIAS se está desarrollando en nuestras propias
vidas.
A diferencia de cualquier otra lectura, cuando las
Escrituras se leen, Dios también habla. Qué Podamos
permitir que la Palabra de Dios pueda tener un amplio
espacio en nuestros días para que podamos vivir vidas
que se inspiren y tenga fuerza en la palabra de Dios.
Padre John
