Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection

      After interceding with Jesus, Mary, traditionally invoked as “Mother of Mercy,” instructs Cana’s servants, “Do whatever he tells you” (John 2:5). So “Mother Church,” especially during this Jubilee Year of Mercy, instructs us to use the Spirit’s manifold gifts in generous service of the human family, whose wine—“life more abundantly”—so often seems to have run out.

Después de interceder con Jesús, María, a quien tradicionalmente se le invoca como “Madre de Misericordia”, da instrucciones a los sirvientes en Caná: “Hagan lo que él les diga” (Juan 2:5). Por eso la “Madre Iglesia”, especialmente durante este Año Jubilar de la Misericordia, nos da instrucciones para que usemos los múltiples dones del Espíritu en servir a la familia humana, cuyo vino –“la vida en abundancia”– a menudo parece acabarse.

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? 

“When Christ is your friend, you have joy, serenity and happiness.” ~Pope Francis
