Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection

     “But you,” says Paul in his First Letter to Timothy and to us, “pursue righteous-ness, devotion, faith, love, patience, and gentleness” (6:11). In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we in Jesus’ Church, like the rich man’s “Five brothers” still living in his “father’s house,” need to see anyone lying neglected right at our door and do something caring and compassionate. That someone is always Jesus. Where must I look this week to see the Jesus I love and worship in someone in need and offer my wholehearted care and compassion?

     “Ti... lleva una vida de rectitud, piedad, fe, amor, paciencia y mansedumbre”, dice Pablo en su primera carta a Timoteo (6:11). En este Año Jubilar de la Misericordia nosotros en la Iglesia de Jesús, viviendo aun como los “cinco hermanos” en esta vida terrenal, necesitamos ver a cualquier persona que yace frente a nosotros para atenderlo con compasión. Esa persona siempre va a ser Jesús. ¿Hacia dónde debo dirigir mi mirada esta semana para ver al Jesús, que amo y adoro, en alguna persona necesitada y ofrecerle de todo corazón mi asistencia compasiva?

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?  

"Being Christian involves joining one’s own life, in all its aspects, to the person of Jesus, and through him, to the Father."
