When my youngest sister, Joanne, who had
suffered for many years with multiple sclerosis,
lay dying in her hospital bed, we members of her
family gathered around her for her final days.
We watched as any remaining strength left in her
fragile body was slowly released. Joanne, like
Saint Paul, had been given a “thorn in the flesh,”
a thorn that gradually robbed her of the ability
to walk, sing, speak, and care for her young son. Yet each
time I visited her over the final years of her life, I detected an
inner strength that amazed me. Like Saint Paul, in her physical weakness she was still strong. And that strength radiated
from her, even in her dying days, giving all of us the fortitude
to grow even stronger as a loving family.
STRENGTH FROM THE LOVE OF GOD
Society tries to dictate what strength is. Strength is being
“number one.” Strength is making the most money, having
the most powerful position in a company, being the quarterback, and climbing the social ladder. Today we hear scripture
stories of three people who exhibited a different kind of
strength. Ezekiel, Paul, and the Lord Jesus were not people
who found strength in the material things of life. And they
were not “weaklings” by any stretch of the imagination. They
were people who, despite the obstacles, held fast to their
conviction that the love of God would give them the strength,
even in times of weakness, to minister to those entrusted to
their care. What wonderful examples we have in these three
men. As Saint Paul said, “I will rather boast most gladly of my
weaknesses, in order that the power of Christ may dwell with
me” (2 Corinthians 12:9). When we are feeling that life presents us with too many obstacles, let us remember that even in
weakness we can radiate a strength to others that comes from
the grace of a God who loves us more and more with each
passing day.
— Jerry Galipeau
Cuando mi hermana menor, Joanne, que
había padecido esclerosis múltiple muchos
años, estaba agonizando en el hospital, los
miembros de la familia nos agrupábamos a su
alrededor para acompañarla en sus últimos
días. Observamos como la poca fuerza que
quedaba en su frágil cuerpo cedía lentamente.
Joanne, como San Pablo, había recibido una
“espina clavada en la carne”, una espina que gradualmente
le quitó la habilidad de caminar, cantar, hablar y cuidar de su
pequeño hijo. Sin embargo, cada vez que la visitaba durante
los últimos años de su vida, detectaba una fuerza interior que
me sorprendía. Como san Pablo, en su debilidad física seguía
siendo fuerte. Y esa fuerza irradiaba de ella, aun cuando
agonizaba, dándonos a todos la fortaleza para crecer aún más
fuerte como una familia amorosa.
FUERZA DEL AMOR DE DIOS
La sociedad intenta dictar qué es la fuerza. La fuerza es ser “el
número uno”. La fuerza es ganar todo el dinero posible, tener la
posición más poderosa en una empresa, ser mariscal de campo
y subir en la escala social. Hoy oímos relatos en la Sagrada
Escritura de tres personas que demostraron tener un tipo de
fuerza diferente. Ezequiel, Pablo y Jesús no fueron personas que
encontraron fuerza en las cosas materiales de la vida. Y no eran
“debiluchos” bajo ningún punto de vista. Eran personas que, a
pesar de los obstáculos, se aferraban firmemente a su convicción
de que el amor de Dios les daría la fuerza, aun en tiempos de
debilidad, para ocuparse de los que estaban encomendados
a su cuidado. Qué maravillosos ejemplos tenemos en estos
tres hombres. Como dijo san Pablo: “Prefiero gloriarme de mis
debilidades, para que se manifieste en mí el poder de Cristo”
(2 Corintios 12:9). Cuando sentimos que la vida nos pone
demasiados obstáculos, recordemos que aun en la debilidad
podemos irradiar a los demás una fuerza que viene de la gracia
de un Dios que nos ama más y más a medida que pasan los días.
