Reflexiones sobre las lecturas de este domingo del Padre Rico.
24 de julio del 2016
Decimoséptimo del Tiempo Ordinario
Cuánto Puede la Oración. Como suele suceder los domingos, hay un tema
común entre la primera lectura y el evangelio, mientras que la segunda
lectura abre un tema distinto. En este caso, el tema común es la oración y
cuánto puede lograrse a través de ella. Aunque, si miramos más
detenidamente, la enseñanza de hoy alude a esa forma de oración que todos conocemos y seguramente hemos practicado muchísimas veces: la
oración de petición. Además, tanto en el texto del Génesis como en la
lectura de San Lucas aparece un hecho: lo que se pide resulta difícil o
incómodo. Esto es interesante porque de seguro nosotros mismos hemos
sentido más de una vez que lo que pedimos escapa la lógica fría de los
hechos y por ello es incómodo o difícil pedirlo. Pero bueno, por eso es
una oración de súplica, porque no parece que las cosas vayan a darse como
por sí solas!
Rogando a favor de los Inocentes. En el Génesis vemos a Abraham intercediendo a favor de los que, siendo inocentes, se hallan en medio de un
pueblo corrupto y vil. Las ciudades de Sodoma y Gomorra han amontonado su propia destrucción, pero Abraham no quiere que en la catástrofe
que habrá de llegar perezcan juntos los culpables con los honrados. Por eso
ruega, apelando a la justicia de Dios, de un modo humilde pero persistente.
De su ejemplo aprendemos esas dos cualidades que son muy propias de la
oración cristiana: humildad y perseverancia. También aprendemos que la
oración es diálogo. Su esencia no es un estado de la mente o una sensación en el corazón. Es más que un sentimiento y mucho más que una
cierta actividad neurológica en el cerebro. Ello puede tener algún valor
pero nunca nos guiará al núcleo mismo del misterio maravilloso de la
oración. Orar es dialogar: implica un encuentro real con Aquel que nos
ama y por tanto una especie de actividad. No es pura pasividad, en sentido
de "mente en blanco" o de "Nirvana" budista. Sobre esto nos ilustra muy
bien el Evangelio.
Rogando porque somos Hijos. Si en el texto de la primera lectura Abraham ruega fundándose en la justicia, y desde ahí argumenta que Dios nunca destruirá al inocente con el culpable, en el evangelio encontramos otro
aspecto, otra razón para nuestro ruego: le hablamos a Dios porque somos
sus hijos. En la oración se devela y a la vez se hace efectivo el misterio de
nuestra condición de hijos, que Cristo predicó y que también hizo posible
con su sacrificio redentor, que hizo posible el don del Espíritu Santo para
nosotros. El fundamento último de nuestra oración no es entonces que
queremos un mundo mejor, porque eso lo puede querer cualquier ser
dotado de razón; no es tampoco que merecemos una vida distinta o ser
exentos de tales o cuales dolores o problemas. Ni es tampoco porque seamos buenos o libres de culpa. Oramos porque somos hijos. Oramos
porque el Espíritu del Hijo ora en nosotros. Y por eso oramos con perseverancia, sencillez, confianza y sobre todo con inmenso amor, convencidos como estamos de que Dios sabe qué es lo mejor para nosotros y puede
y quiere otorgárnoslo. Amén.

The “Differences” Between the Baby in the Womb
and the Newborn Baby
There are four "differences" between the baby in
the mother's womb (or so-called fetus) who has no
protection under the law from a newborn baby, who
is protected:
Mary, Joseph and 7-year-old Jesus embark on a
journey from Egypt to Nazareth after the young
boy miraculously brings someone back to life.
When King Herod orders the death of the child, Roman centurion 1. Size. The baby in the womb is usually smaller than newborns.
The question, then, is what does size have to do with rights of
Severus starts to pursue the family across the desert. As Mary and
personhood? The answer: nothing.
Joseph worry about his safety, Jesus' natural curiosity allows him to
understand more about the world and his remarkable powers.
2. Level of development. Babies in the womb are less developed
than a newborn (unless the newborn is born prematurely).

4. Dependency. Abortion protagonists love to argue that, "since a
fetus cannot survive on its own, it has no inherent right to life".
The problem with this argument is that to varying degrees, we
are all dependent on others. Moreover, newborn babies and
small children are absolutely dependent upon their parents for
survival. What is absurd about this line of thinking is the fact
that dependency should merit more protection under the law,
not less! We are all far more outraged, for example, at violence

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults): Helping you to live a Gospel inspired life in an increasingly secular world
Have you been coming to Mass for awhile and think, “what does it mean to be Catholic?”
Are you interested in finding out what Catholics really believe? Join us for Inquiry.
Now might be the perfect time to join us. Wednesdays, 6:30-8pm.
All sessions are informal and completely commitment free.
The RCIA will be on break this week and will
not meet this Wednesday, July 27. Our
upcoming summer sessions include:
RCIA Inquiry: informal sessions to answers any and
all questions abut the Catholic Faith.
RCIA: For those already started on the journey to
the Catholic Church, we will be offering more
structured sessions utilizing the Faith Clips series,
featuring Bishop Robert Barron.
Our Gospel Reading today centers around the
Lord’s Prayer, the Our Father.
This prayer was taught to us by
Jesus Himself, and can be broken
down into seven petitions,
“the object of the first 3 petitions
is the glory of the Father…
the 4 others present our wants to him:
they ask that our lives be nourished, healed of sin,
and made victorious in the struggle of good over evil.”
