THE GIFT OF PEACE
e are offered another vision in today’s second reading, a
vision of the New Jerusalem, “coming down
out of heaven from God” (Revelation
21:10). Read between the lines describing the radiant
city, and we find that the greatest beauty revealed is
the beauty of perfect symmetry and order, a city
founded on the faith of the twelve tribes of Israel and
the Twelve Apostles, lit only by the glory of God. The first reading
and the Gospel are linked to this idealized description of the New Jerusalem. In both we read of distress and disturbance countered by the
gift of peace. “[M]y peace I give to you,” Jesus assures his disciples at
the Last Supper (John 14:27). In keeping with that gift, the apostles
and elders, in the reading from Acts, decide not to disturb the peace
of new Gentile believers. The undue burden of circumcision will not be
imposed on them. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
he French Revolution swept the church in France away in an
astonishing way, stripping the nation of every
possible vestige of the faith, not merely shuttering churches, but using them as staging areas for pagan
raves and romps. While millions of faithful simply went
underground and hung on for the ride, even the sevenday week was demolished along with the names of the
months. What emerged from the chaos was the Napoleonic Code of
1792 governing church life, and therefore marriage law in France,
French Canada, and elsewhere. The code makes civil marriage mandatory for all citizens. In practice, when the faithful marry, they go first
to the City Hall. There, the mayor performs the civil marriage, usually
accompanied by a patriotic speech about the duties of the citizen,
particularly in the rearing of children. Then, typically after a lunch,
everyone goes off to change into more festive attire for the wedding
liturgy, featuring consent, the exchange of rings, and the nuptial blessing. Sadly, only a minority of citizens today celebrate even the civil
form of the rite, and a fraction of those continue on to the church. For
those who do celebrate the liturgy of marriage, however, there is near
certainty that the spouses are active worshipers, and that they will later present their children for baptism. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

EL DON DE LA PAZ
E
e nos ofrece una visión distinta en la segunda
lectura de hoy, una visión de la
Nueva Jerusalén, “que descendía del cielo, resplandeciente con la
gloria de Dios” (Apocalipsis 21:10). Si
buscamos el significado detrás de la
descripción de la radiante ciudad, vemos que la belleza mayor que se revela es la belleza de una perfecta armonía y orden,
una ciudad fundada en la fe de las doce tribus de
Israel y los doce Apóstoles, alumbrada únicamente
por la gloria de Dios. La primera lectura y el Evangelio también van conectados a esta descripción idealizada de la Nueva Jerusalén. En ambos leemos como
la angustia y los altercados se contrarrestan con el
don de la paz. “Mi paz les doy”, les asegura Jesús a
sus discípulos en la Última Cena (Juan 14:27). De
acuerdo con ese don, los apóstoles y presbíteros, en la
lectura de los Hechos, deciden no alterar la paz de los
nuevos creyentes gentiles. No han de imponerles la
excesiva carga de la circuncisión. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
ristemente una vez que muchos latinoamericanos llegan a los Estados Unidos
es difícil regresar a sus tierras
de origen, ni siquiera para visitar. Por
esta razón, muchos pueblos latinoamericanos han construido santuarios a
sus vírgenes y santos patrones en tierra estadounidense. De esta manera buscan estar
cerca al suelo que les trajo a luz, que les nutrió con
frutas, verduras, flores, cantos, costumbres y tradiciones. En Miami el pueblo cubano ha construido una
ermita dedicada a la Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre, cuya capilla del Santísimo fue bendecida en la
fiesta de la Ascensión del Señor. Debajo de su altar
principal se guarda una piedra hecha con tierra de
las distintas provincias de Cuba. Es bello el hecho,
porque de esta manera todo cubano que se acerca
al altar del Señor puede estar cerca de su terruño
aunque sea solo por un momento. Que hay en la tierra que nos llama tanto a nosotros los latinos. Será
que el libro del Génesis tiene razón, Dios forma toda
persona del polvo y el corazón latino anhela la tierra
de la que fue sacado. —Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copy-
