Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection

     

Good Shepherd Sunday celebrates the tender yet courageous Jesus who adorns Pope Francis's simple cross, carrying us safely home to Revelation's future glory, promising to "wipe away every tear from [our] eyes." The Shepherd invites us to help that promised healing begin by drying the tears of others even now. As a lamb who was lost but is now found, how can I join Jesus this week in seeking, finding, and gently carrying home at least one precious lamb?

El domingo del Buen Pastor celebra al Jesús tierno y a la vez
valiente, que adorna la cruz sencilla del Papa Francisco, y que nos conduce al hogar seguro de la gloria futura con la promesa que encontramos en el Apocalipsis de que “Dios enjugará de [nuestros] ojos toda lágrima”. El Pastor nos
invita a que esa promesa comience a fructificarse ya desde ahora cuando enjuguemos las lágrimas de otras personas. Como oveja que estaba perdida y ha sido hallada, ¿cómo puedo esta semana unirme a Jesús para buscar, encontrar y llevar tiernamente al hogar, por lo menos a una valiosa oveja?

HOLY YEAR OF MERCY

As the Jubilee Year of Mercy begins, what twists and turns do I need to let God untangle in my life? What rough edges smooth out? What mountainous of pride bring low? What valleys of indifference and neglect fill with mercy for others

      

Al comenzar el Año Jubilar de la Misericordia, ¿qué madejas en mi vida debo dejar que Dios desenrede? ¿Qué asperezas? ¿Cuánto orgullo descomunal debe rebajar? ¿Qué valles de indiferencia y abandono debe llenar para que yo tenga misericordia para con los demás? 

“The Lord asks us to be men and women who radiate the truth, beauty and the life-changing power of the Gospel.” 

~Pope Francis
