Sunday Gospel

Post by Esther on Mon Jul 19, 2010 6:31 pm

Last Sunday Gospel sixteenth Sunday of the Year - 07-18-10
we are brought to a scene where Jesus is visiting Martha and Mary.


" Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village; and a woman
named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called
Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha
was distracted with much serving; and she went to him and said, «Lord, do
you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to
help me.» But the Lord answered her, «Martha, Martha, you are anxious and
troubled about many things; one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the
good portion, which shall not be taken away from her.» "

Homily: it's free from

" Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village; and a woman
named Martha received him into her house. "

In the prologue of his Gospel on the Word of Life, Saint John tells us:
"From his fullness have we all received, grace upon grace. For the law was
given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ." (Jn.
1:16-17) This is also what Saint Luke tells us today when he reports the
visit of Jesus to a village, this village being none other than Bethany,
where Lazarus and his two sisters, Martha and Mary, live (cf. Jn.
11:1-2). For, when Jesus visits someone, it is to give that person a
gift, the most beautiful one there is: the gift of his grace, the source
of eternal life!

But it is not enough that Jesus visits someone for this gift of grace to
be truly given: above all, it is necessary that he or she to whom this
gift is offered truly receives it, with heart, with faith, with love!
This is what Martha did when she received Jesus into her home. Martha
truly received the gift of grace that Jesus had come to bring her, and
this grace gave her the strength to resolutely put herself in the service
of the Lord. Now, Martha received a grace that was proper to her, a
personal grace, a grace that was for her alone and that established her
in a unique relation, one unlike any other, with the Savior of the world.
Since then, Martha was in the service of the Lord!

" And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and
listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving;
and she went to him and said, «Lord, do you not care that my sister has
left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.» "

When he went to Martha's home, Jesus did not forget to also give a gift to
her sister Mary: he also gave her the grace to put herself in his
service, but a different service, one proper to her person. Mary
received the grace of listening attentively to the word of the Master!
Mary listens to Jesus speak, and the grace she received makes it possible
for her to understand and to meditate this word, which is none other than
the Word of God. While Martha is busy in the service of the home, Mary
remains in the service of the Word of God!

Martha does not seem to understand that there can be different ways to
serve the Lord. So she asks Jesus if he finds it normal that her sister,
unlike her, does not do any housework: "Lord, do you not care that my
sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me." Martha
would prefer that Mary were like her and would also do housework. But,
in fact, Martha is wrong. For it is not Mary who should be like her, but
rather Martha who should be like Mary! And Jesus will make her
understand this...

" But the Lord answered her, «Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled
about many things; one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good
portion, which shall not be taken away from her.» "

Martha and Mary are both in the service of the Lord, for both of them have
answered the call of God's grace. But the ways in which the two of them
carry out this service differ. Just as a human being is composed of a
soul and a body, so too is the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church,
composed of a spiritual aspect and a corporeal aspect. Here, Martha
represents the corporeal aspect, and Mary, the spiritual aspect of the
Mystical Body of Christ. Both are in the service of the Lord and of his
Church, but in different ways. But, since God is spirit (cf. Jn. 4:24),
the spiritual aspect of the service of the Lord is the better of the two.

So all those who, in the Church, receive the grace of being in the service
of God in his corporeal and material aspect must make an effort, with the
help of this same grace that they have received, to transform their
service to God into a spiritual service. There is nothing wrong with
Martha's service - quite the contrary. But Martha did not make enough
effort to lift up her soul to the Lord, in order to find in her service
of taking care of her home all of its spiritual value. For, by carrying
out her service in a more serene and spiritual manner, Martha too could
have had a taste of the joys of contemplating the Word of God!

" «Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from
her.» "

In today's first reading, we heard the story of Abraham, who was visited
at his home by three men, images and figures of the Most Holy Trinity
coming to dwell in the hearts of the just. Now, something important
happened which was the fruit of this visit: the announcement of the
birth of a son, a year at most after this meeting between Abraham and the
three men (cf. Gn. 18:10). This means that he or she who receives a
visit from God, and who believes in him, will also receive the promise
that he or she will give birth to a child, this being understood in a
spiritual sense. In other words, all those who receive the gift of God's
grace can hope, one day, to truly become the sons and daughters of God!
The grace of God is never received in vain: it is like a spring from
which pours forth water for eternal life!

Truly, "Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away
from her." How can we not see, here, that other Mary, the unique, she
whom God chose to be his Mother according to the flesh! Even more so
than Martha's sister, Mary the Mother of Jesus is our model in the
service of the Word of God! But as Mary is the model of all of Christ's
faithful, she is also the model of all those who serve God by faithfully,
but spiritually, taking care of their home. Did Mary not leave Nazareth
right after the Incarnation in her of the Word, in order to go and help
her cousin Elizabeth with her housework? But it is in the intimacy of
the Word of God, in the union with the Holy Spirit who has become her
Husband, that Mary resolutely put herself in the service of the Lord and
of his Mystical Body, already born!

In the Gospel Jesus teaches us how to pray.

We shall all pray together to our Father, who is in Heaven. Let us ask Him to send us his Holy Spirit! Let us ask this Spirit of Love to unite together all those who share in the same inheritance with Christ! Let us all pray together, with the Saints of Heaven and the Saints of the earth! Above all, let us pray with the holiest of all the children of God and co-heirs of Christ, let us pray with the Virgin Mary, the Most Holy Mother of God! Amen!

July 31, 2010 Memorial of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, priest

Post by Esther on Sun Aug 01, 2010 8:48 am

July 31, 2010
Memorial of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, priest

Reading 1
Jer 26:11-16, 24
Gospel
Mt 14:1-12



Herod the tetrarch heard of the reputation of Jesus and said to his servants, "This man is John the Baptist.He has been raised from the dead;that is why mighty powers are at work in him."Now Herod had arrested John, bound him, and put him in prison on account of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip, for John had said to him, "It is not lawful for you to have her."Although he wanted to kill him, he feared the people, for they regarded him as a prophet. But at a birthday celebration for Herod,the daughter of Herodias performed a dance before the guests and delighted Herod so much that he swore to give her whatever she might ask for. Prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist. "The king was distressed, but because of his oaths and the guests who were present,
he ordered that it be given, and he had John beheaded in the prison. His head was brought in on a platter and given to the girl, who took it to her mother. His disciples came and took away the corpse and buried him; and they went and told Jesus.

Share here the homily of your priest or your reflection to our Gospel.

Thanks.

August 1, 2010 Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Post by Esther on Sun Aug 01, 2010 2:08 pm

August 1, 2010
Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Reading 1
Ecc 1:2; 2:21

Vanity of vanities, says Qoheleth,
vanity of vanities! All things are vanity!
Here is one who has labored with wisdom and knowledge and skill,
and yet to another who has not labored over it,
he must leave property.
This also is vanity and a great misfortune.
For what profit comes to man from all the toil and anxiety of heart
with which he has labored under the sun?
All his days sorrow and grief are his occupation;
even at night his mind is not at rest.
This also is vanity.

Responsorial Psalm
Ps 90: 3-4, 5-6, 12 - 13, 14, 17

R. (1) If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
You turn man back to dust,
saying, “Return, O children of men.”
For a thousand years in your sight
are as yesterday, now that it is past,
or as a watch of the night.
R. If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
You make an end of them in their sleep;
the next morning they are like the changing grass,
Which at dawn springs up anew,
but by evening wilts and fades.
R. If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
Teach us to number our days aright,
that we may gain wisdom of heart.
Return, O LORD! How long?
Have pity on your servants!
R. If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
Fill us at daybreak with your kindness,
that we may shout for joy and gladness all our days.
And may the gracious care of the LORD our God be ours;
prosper the work of our hands for us!
Prosper the work of our hands!
R. If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.

Reading 2
Col 3;5-1. 9-11

Brothers and sisters:
If you were raised with Christ, seek what is above,
where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
Think of what is above, not of what is on earth.
For you have died,
and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ your life appears,
then you too will appear with him in glory.
Put to death, then, the parts of you that are earthly:
immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire,
and the greed that is idolatry.
Stop lying to one another,
since you have taken off the old self with its practices
and have put on the new self,
which is being renewed, for knowledge,
in the image of its creator.
Here there is not Greek and Jew,
circumcision and uncircumcision,
barbarian, Scythian, slave, free;
but Christ is all and in all.


Gospel
Lk. 12:13 - 21

Someone in the crowd said to Jesus,
“Teacher, tell my brother to share the inheritance with me.”
He replied to him,
“Friend, who appointed me as your judge and arbitrator?”
Then he said to the crowd,
“Take care to guard against all greed,
for though one may be rich,
one’s life does not consist of possessions.”
Then he told them a parable.
“There was a rich man whose land produced a bountiful harvest.
He asked himself, ‘What shall I do,
for I do not have space to store my harvest?’
And he said, ‘This is what I shall do:
I shall tear down my barns and build larger ones.
There I shall store all my grain and other goods
and I shall say to myself, “Now as for you,
you have so many good things stored up for many years,
rest, eat, drink, be merry!”’
But God said to him,
‘You fool, this night your life will be demanded of you;
and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong?’
Thus will it be for all who store up treasure for themselves
but are not rich in what matters to Go

poverty in spirit is detachment sin and from earthly goods - money, possessions, reputation, power, sex, etc.

wealth in God (or we could say 'wealth in spirit') is attachment to God
and attachment to heavenly goods (virtue, true spiritual love,
self-denial, prayer, works of mercy, etc.).

August 8, 2010
Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time


Lk 12:32-48 or 12:35-40



Gospel



Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not be afraid any longer, little flock,
for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom.
Sell your belongings and give alms.
Provide money bags for yourselves that do not wear out,
an inexhaustible treasure in heaven
that no thief can reach nor moth destroy.
For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
“Gird your loins and light your lamps
and be like servants who await their master’s return from a wedding,
ready to open immediately when he comes and knocks.
Blessed are those servants
whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival.
Amen, I say to you, he will gird himself,
have them recline at table, and proceed to wait on them.
And should he come in the second or third watch
and find them prepared in this way,
blessed are those servants.
Be sure of this:
if the master of the house had known the hour
when the thief was coming,
he would not have let his house be broken into.
You also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect,
the Son of Man will come.”
Then Peter said,
“Lord, is this parable meant for us or for everyone?”
And the Lord replied,
“Who, then, is the faithful and prudent steward
whom the master will put in charge of his servants
to distribute the food allowance at the proper time?
Blessed is that servant whom his master on arrival finds doing so.
Truly, I say to you, the master will put the servant
in charge of all his property.
But if that servant says to himself,
‘My master is delayed in coming,’
and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants,
to eat and drink and get drunk,
then that servant’s master will come
on an unexpected day and at an unknown hour
and will punish the servant severely
and assign him a place with the unfaithful.
That servant who knew his master’s will
but did not make preparations nor act in accord with his will
shall be beaten severely;
and the servant who was ignorant of his master’s will
but acted in a way deserving of a severe beating
shall be beaten only lightly.
Much will be required of the person entrusted with much,
and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more.”
