Today’s Meditation
TRUE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY
Can you imagine a world such as the one put before us in today’s scripture readings? Communities of believers everywhere would support and encourage one another and be identified as Christians by the way they love each other. It
would be a world with no tears, no death and mourning, no crying out in pain. “Behold, I make all things new,” we hear
the Son of God say in the second reading from the book of Revelation (21:5).
Is this world of John’s vision only imaginary? Are these faithful followers for whom Jesus prayed only a savior’s
dream? Today they are put before us as a worthy goal. How much closer can we come to this vision of a true Christian
community in our lives today?

TODAY’S READINGS
First Reading — Paul and Barnabas continue their travels, spreading the faith and unifying the churches (Acts 14:2127).
Psalm — I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God (Psalm 145).
Second Reading — John’s vision of God dwelling with the human race (Revelation 21:1-5a).
Gospel — As Jesus has loved us, so we must love one another (John 13:31-33a, 34-35).

VERDADERA COMUNIDAD CRISTIANA
¿Te puedes imaginar un mundo tal como nos lo presenta las lecturas bíblicas de hoy? Comunidades de fieles
por todas partes que se apoyan y se animan unas a otras y
se identifican como cristianos por el amor que se tienen
unos a otros. Sería un mundo sin lágrimas, sin muerte ni
luto, sin gritos de dolor. “Ahora todo lo hago nuevo”,
oímos decir al Hijo de Dios en la segunda lectura del libro del Apocalipsis (21:5).
Este mundo de la visión de Juan, ¿es sólo un mundo
imaginario? Y esos fieles seguidores de Jesús por los cuales él reza, ¿son un mero sueño del salvador? Hoy se presentan ante nosotros como una meta valiosa. ¿Cómo podemos acercarnos cada vez más a esta visión de una verdadera comunidad cristiana en nuestra vida de hoy?

LECTURAS DE HOY

viajes para fortalecer el espíritu de los discípulos
