I appreciate your thoughts, prayers and generosity remembering my birthday and my priestly ordination anniversary. Thank you very much!
Two parables. Jesus was a story teller. He used stories to get the message across. To those who
were open to the Good News, Jesus’ stories makes sense. There were few who struggled understanding them.
This weekend, Jesus tells us two parables. All concerning about seeds, Jesus wants to tell his audience
what heaven looks like. We are not talking about a place here. But certainly heaven is that finality where we want
ourselves placed. As Jesus described it, the Kingdom of God is a home.
Jesus’ home is inclusive. He welcomes both friends and strangers. The best part is that in Jesus’ home
love abounds. Because there is plenty of love, there is plenty of growth too.
Growth here must not be confused with physical growth. Growth in God’s kingdom refers to holiness. In
God’s kingdom, there is no more weakness of the flesh. And being free from evil, righteousness is perfected there.
I am praying that you find home here in our community, the Our Lady of Perpetual
Help Parish. I invited you to join me in building a home. I invite you again, join me in making our parish a home. We can do it by breaking barriers. That opportunity is available after
Mass. The coffee and donuts provides a healthy venue to get to know each other and become a family. Also there are upcoming gatherings provided for us to open doors for community building.
I am praying and hoping that in the next weekends I will be able to see more families and parishioners staying for the coffee and donuts.
Agradezco sus buenos deseos, oraciones y generosidad al recordar mi cumpleaños y mi aniversario de
ordenación Sacerdotal. Muchas gracias!
Dos parábolas. Jesús era el narrador de Parábolas. Él usó Parábolas para hacer llegar el mensaje. Para
los que estaban abiertos a escuchar la Buena Nueva, las Parábolas de Jesús tienen sentido. Había pocos que
escucharon y que lo entendieron.
Este fin de semana, Jesús nos dice dos parábolas. Todo alrededor acerca de las semillas, Jesús quiere
decirle a su pueblo como se parece el cielo. No estamos hablando de un lugar aquí. Pero, ciertamente, el cielo
es la firmeza de donde queremos nosotros mismos ir. Como Jesús lo describió, el Reino de Dios es un hogar.
El hogar de Jesús es inclusiva. Él da la bienvenida a propios y extraños. La mejor parte es que el amor
de Jesús abunda en casa. Porque hay mucho amor, hay mucho crecimiento también.
El Crecimiento aquí no debe confundirse con el crecimiento físico. El crecimiento en el reino de Dios se
refiere a la santidad. En el reino de Dios, no hay más debilidad de la carne. Y uno es libre del mal, la justicia se
perfecciona allí.
Estoy orando para que ustedes encuentren la casa aquí en nuestra comunidad, de la Parroquia de
Nuestra Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro. Los he invitado a
unirse a mí en la construcción de una casa. Os invito de
nuevo, que se unan a mí para hacer nuestra parroquia
una casa. Podemos hacerlo rompiendo las barreras. Esa
oportunidad está disponible después de la Misa. El café y
las donas proporciona un lugar saludable para llegar a conocer unos a otros y convertirse en una familia. También
habrá próximas reuniones previstas con nosotros para
abrir las puertas a la creación de la comunidad.
Estoy orando y esperando que en los próximos
fines de semana pueda ver más familias y feligreses conviviendo tomando el café y donas.

Undécimo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
Durante los domingos del Tiempo Ordinario, la lectura del Antiguo Testamento se relaciona con el tema del Evangelio de ese domingo.
Hoy Ezequiel ve a Dios elevar los árboles pequeños y florecer los árboles secos. Y en las parábolas del Evangelio de hoy, Jesús nos anima
poniendo como ejemplos el fruto abundante que puede dar una semilla y que la semilla tan pequeña de mostaza crece y se convierte en
uno de los arbustos más grandes, y así es Dios quien hace crecer el Reino de un pequeño comienzo a un instrumento de salvación para
todos. En la primera parábola la tierra por sí sola produce el fruto (Marcos 4:28). Además de la iniciativa de Dios, la parábola enseña que el
crecimiento de la semilla, al principio invisible, no se puede detener. Para estar seguros, las personas que dependen de lo que impresiona o
llama fuertemente la atención para estar convencidas o animadas pues van a estar decepcionadas en lo despacio que se hace realidad el
reino que Jesús anunció. Pero para quienes aceptan el reino, todo es gracia y la gracia es verdadera.
Aún cuando la segunda lectura no se relaciona ni con la primera ni con el Evangelio durante estos domingos; hay que considerar el
mensaje que tiene la de hoy. San Pablo afirma que en nuestro camino de fe confiamos en Dios y esto debe hacernos un pueblo de valor
indomable y fe inquebrantable. Y al mismo tiempo Pablo nos advierte que la fe también debe hacernos consientes de nuestra responsabilidad de hacer el bien.

Primera lectura — Elevaré los árboles pequeños (Ezequiel 17:22-24).
Salmo — ¡Qué bueno es darte gracias, Señor! (Salmo 92 [91]).
Segunda lectura — En el destierro o en la patria, nos esforzamos por agradar al Señor (2 Corintios 5:6-10).
Evangelio — El hombre siembra su campo, y sin que él sepa cómo, la semilla germina y crece (Marcos 4:26-34).
Jesús manifiesta su poder mediante el perdón de los pecados (Marcos 2:1-12). Por medio de la reconciliación con Dios, Jesús sana a
los enfermos, marginalizados y hasta sus propios enemigos. Este poder de perdonar pecados Jesús mismo lo encarga a su Iglesia,
infundiendo su Espíritu sobre los primeros discípulos (Juan 20:22-23).
Según el Símbolo (Credo) de los Apóstoles, los cristianos creemos en el “perdón de los pecados”. Esta creencia se relaciona con
creer en el Espíritu Santo, la Iglesia, la comunión de los santos, la resurrección del cuerpo y la vida eterna. En el perdón de los pecados,
el Espíritu Santo manifiesta su continua presencia y acción en la Iglesia y comunión de los santos. Quienes reciben el perdón de los
pecados mediante la celebración del Bautismo o el sacramento de la Reconciliación, están preparados para la resurrección y la vida
El perdón de los pecados manifiesta el poder de Cristo, del Espíritu Santo y de la Iglesia. Los cristianos estamos llamados al perdón;
perdonando, así como deseamos ser perdonados. Perdonando, como Jesucristo.

Donde está la Iglesia, allí está el Espíritu de Dios; y donde está el Espíritu de Dios, allí está la Iglesia y toda gracia.
