Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection

     Jesus’ final words restate the identity and confirm the promise— forever: “I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Blessed assurance, indeed, as heeding Acts’ challenge, we turn our eyes from distant skies that beckon us toward heavenly rest and focus instead on this world’s messy streets. There,  as Jesus teaches, we must “see” and serve Jesus in the hungry and thirsty, those lacking clothing and shelter, those sick and imprisoned, the “least” whom we must love the most if we would inherit Jesus’ kingdom.Image result for jesus i am with you always

     Las últimas palabras de Jesús reafirman la identidad y confirma la promesa para siempre: “estoy con ustedes todos los días hasta el fin del mundo”. Ciertamente ésa es una bendita seguridad para nosotros que, prestando atención al reto de los Hechos, alejamos nuestra mirada del cielo distante que nos atrae hacia el descanso celestial y la reenfocamos en las calles caóticas de este mundo. Ahí, tal como nos enseña Jesús, debemos “ver” y servir a Jesús en los hambrientos y sedientos, en aquellos que carecen de ropa y de vivienda, en los enfermos y encarcelados, en los “más pequeños”, a quienes más debemos amar si es que queremos heredar el reino de Jesús
