Faith and Hispanic Values
It is easy to adopt the customs, traditions, and the most comfortable and materialistic
Ways from our new society. Sometimes we participate in feasts or customs celebrated in
the United States, for example, during Christmas and forget our own traditions. This is
almost normal. We try to live as best we can in this country and don’t want our children
to feel different from their classmates or neighborhood friends who
Christ is
come from a different culture. The important thing is to remember
and maintain our faith. These truths about our faith often do not
the Way,
compete with the customs in this country, especially when it refers to
the Truth
hospitality, welcoming others, the generosity to help others,
and Life.
solidarity, and the spirit of honest work. Yet there are also times
when we can embark on a different path. That is, watching the
message that advertisements and sometimes the media sends us, such as we must live
comfortably, spend more on luxury goods, and complete with others to see who has
more things, or that our body is our property and it doesn’t matter whether or not we
respect the life of the unborn or the elderly, or if we break off relationships, or destroy a
marriage if things are going bad; and that we are owed something and must be paid or
compensated. These are the things that seep in almost without our noticing. Then we
arrive at Jesus’s question: Does all that bring you life? The only thing that gives true life
is a profound relationship with Christ who is the Way, Truth and the Life. He is the one
who will tell us what is true happiness, how to carry out our relationships with others,
how to see what is good and worthy in this culture, and the moments when we must hang
on to our own Hispanic vaules and our Catholic faith.
For Reflection
What are things in this country that seem to be more in accordance with your faith and
values? What things are portrayed on television that shock you and you must guard your
children from it so that they don’t believe in these? How can you maintain your faith
and Hispanic values?

Fe y Valores Hispanos
Se nos hace fácil a veces adoptar las costumbres y usos más cómodos y materialistas
de la nueva sociedad. A veces adoptamos las fiestas de Estados Unidos, o las
costumbres, por ejemplo, de Navidad, y olvidamos las propias. Es casi normal.
Tratamos de vivir en este país lo mejor posible, y no queremos que nuestros hijos se
sientan distintos a sus compañeros de escuela, o a sus amigos del barrio que vienen de
otra cultura. Lo importante, sin embargo, es recordar y mantener nuestra fe. Nuestra fe
que nos dice que somos hijos de Dios, y que Cristo mismo nos vino a dar vida. Esas
verdades de nuestra fe a menudo no están reñidas con las costumbres de este país,
sobre todo las que se refieren a la hospitalidad, la acogida de otros, la generosidad para
ayudar, la solidaridad, el espíritu de trabajo honrado.
Pero a veces sí que podrían llevarnos por un camino diferente. Es decir, podría ser que o
que nos ofrece la publicidad y lo que a veces se nos dice en los medios de comunicación
- vivir cómodamente, gastar en tener los lujos mayores y en competir con los demás a
ver quién tiene más; o que nuestro cuerpo es propiedad nuestra y no importa sino se
respeta la vida de los no nacidos, o de los que ya son mayores; o que no importa romper
relaciones si algo nos va mal y destruir el matrimonio, o que todo se nos debe y por todo
nos tienen que pagar o recompensar. Eso son cosas que se nos van “colando” casi sin
darnos cuenta nosotros mismos. Entonces, nos llega la pregunta de Jesús: ¿Todo eso les
da vida? Porque lo único que puede dar vida verdadera es una relación profunda con
Cristo que es Camino, Verdad y Vida. Es Él quien nos va diciendo lo que es la
verdadera felicidad, cómo llevar nuestras relaciones con los demás, cómo ver lo que en
esta cultura es bueno y valioso y en qué momentos tenemos que aferrarnos a nuestros
valores hispanos y a nuestra fe católica.
Para La Reflexion
¿Qué cosas de este país te parecen más acordes con tu fe y con tus valores? ¿Qué cosas
dicen a veces en la televisión que te chocan y te parece que tienes que vigilar que tus
hijos no las crean? ¿Cómo puedes mantener tu fe y tus valores hispanos?
