Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
WATCHING FOR THE MESSIAH
Today’s Gospel story of John and his disciples seeing
and following Jesus sounds so simple and casual, it’s easy to
miss the significant acts of faith that are made.
John points to Jesus: “Look,” he says, “there is the Lamb
of God.” John’s faith in Jesus is evident, so evident that
John’s disciples immediately leave his side to follow this
Jesus.
The two disciples make their own act of faith. They
follow Jesus, spend time with him, and are quick to spread
the good news of their discovery: “We have found the
Messiah.”
It is easy to forget that the expectations of generations,
the hopes of many ages of faithful people were being
fulfilled in these simple acts of faith. The Lamb of God, the
Messiah, foretold by the prophets, had finally come. Nearly
everyone among the Jewish people was watching for the
Messiah back then; who in our own society watches for signs
of the presence of the Messiah today?

Segundo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
EN BÚSQUEDA DEL MESÍAS
El relato del Evangelio de hoy en el que Juan y sus
discípulos ven y siguen a Jesús, suena tan sencillo e
informal, que fácilmente pasan desapercibidos los
importantes actos de fe que ocurren.
Juan señala a Jesús: “Miren”, les dice, “este es el
Cordero de Dios”. La fe de Juan en Jesús es evidente, tan
evidente que los discípulos de Juan inmediatamente se van
de su lado y siguen a Jesús.
Los dos discípulos a su vez hacen un acto de fe. Ellos
siguen a Jesús, pasan tiempo con él, y no demoran en
compartir la buena nueva de su descubrimiento: “Hemos
encontrado al Mesías”.
Es fácil olvidar que las expectativas de generaciones, las
esperanzas de muchos siglos de fieles se estaban cumpliendo
en estos sencillos actos de fe. El Cordero de Dios, el Mesías,
anunciado por los profetas, finalmente había llegado.
Prácticamente todo el mundo en el pueblo judío estaba a la
búsqueda del Mesías en esa época; ¿quién de nuestra
sociedad busca señales de la presencia del Mesías hoy día?

PASO A PASO
Un profesor fue invitado a dar una conferencia en una
base militar, y en el aeropuerto lo recibió un soldado.
Mientras se encaminaban a recoger el equipaje, el soldado
se separó del visitante en tres ocasiones: primero para
ayudar a una anciana con su maleta; luego para cargar a
dos pequeños a fin de que pudieran ver a Santa Claus, y
después para orientar a una persona. Cada vez regresaba
con una sonrisa en el rostro. "¿Dónde aprendió a
comportarse así?” le preguntó el profesor. "En la guerra"
contestó. Entonces le contó su experiencia en Vietnam.
Allá su misión había sido limpiar campos minados.
Durante ese tiempo había visto cómo varios amigos
suyos, uno tras otro, encontraban una muerte prematura.
"Me acostumbré a vivir paso a paso" -explicó. "Nunca
sabía si el siguiente iba a ser el último; por eso tenía que
sacar el mayor provecho posible del momento que
transcurría entre alzar un pie y volver a apoyarlo en el
suelo. Me parecía que cada paso era toda una vida".
Nadie puede saber lo que habrá de suceder mañana. Qué
triste sería el mundo si lo supiéramos. Toda la emoción de
vivir se perdería, nuestra vida sería como una película que
ya vimos. Ninguna sorpresa, ninguna emoción. Pienso
que lo que se requiere es ver la vida como lo que es: una
gran aventura. Al final, no importará quién ha acumulado
más riqueza ni quién ha llegado más lejos. Lo único que
importará es quién lo vivió más y de la mejor forma a los
ojos de Jesús. Eso es, creo yo, lo que se pondrá en la
balanza a la hora de hacer el recuento final.

Comida podre na geladeira pode envenenar sua
família senão for jogada fora. O prego no seu
pneu pode furar aquele pneu se não tirar.
Suas preocupações passadas e presentes podem
envenenar
a
sua
vida
se
não
fizer algo. Você tem que pedir perdão pelas
Angústias que ocupam seu tempo. Mas esse vício
de preocupar-se continua porque, afinal, você tem
que ganhar a vida, tem que pensar no futuro, na
educação dos filhos, tem que preocupar-se com a
paz com seus irmãos, com o mundo em que vive.
Será que você deve aceitar essas angústias como
uma
parte
íntegral
de
sua
vida
e
aprender
aguentá-las
pacientemente? Não! Nós todos somos
fracos demais para aguentar as dificuldades de
vida. Você, eu, todos nós temos que entregar as
nossas
angústias,
doenças
e
demais
dificuldades aos cuidados de Deus. Parece tão
simples – dar para Deus suas angústias para que
Ele cuide.
Veja como é difícil manter a atitude duma criança,
de não guardar nada para si, de permitir que Deus
carregue a você. Talvez você, todos nós, nos
sintamos maduros demais para isso.
Quando será que vamos compreender que não
possamos carregar nada sem ele?
Toda essa reflexão exige muita fé. Temos que
acreditar, ter certeza, que precisamos de Jesus
para nos curar das nossas angústias, de nossa
