ASH WEDNESDAY, March 5 .2014
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fast and abstinence
during Lent.
Fasting binds all persons who have completed their 18th birthday
and through those who have completed their 59th year, unless
prevented by poor health. In days of fast, one full meal is
allowed. Two other meals sufficient to maintain strength may be
taken according to one’s own needs. Eating between meals is
not allowed although fluids may be taken.
Abstinence binds all persons who have completed their 14 th
birthday. On days of abstinence, the consumption of meat is not
allowed. The Church strongly encourages the observance of
Friday abstinence, but failure to do so is not regarded as sinful.
Lent is a penitential season, and religious practices such as daily
Mass, the Sacrament of Penance, the devotion of the Stations of
the Cross, works or charity and justice, and acts of self-denial
are highly encouraged.

6º domingo de tiempo ordinario
Eclesiástico 15,16-20: Dios no ha dado a nadie
permiso de pecar
Salmo 118: Dichoso el que camina en la voluntad del
1Corintios 2,6-10: Dios predestinó la sabiduría antes
de los siglos para nuestra gloria
Mateo 5,17-37: Han oído lo que se dijo a los
antiguos, pero yo les digo…
Muchas veces creemos que el cristianismo es
una lista larga de normas y mandamientos que
debemos cumplir. Es más, parece que Cristo, en este
pasaje, nos complica más nuestros deberes. Pero eso
no es el cristianismo: "No se comienza a ser cristiano
por una decisión ética o una gran idea, sino por el
encuentro con un acontecimiento, con una Persona,
que da un nuevo horizonte a la vida y, con ello, una
orientación decisiva". (Deus Caritas est, n.1). Es sólo
a través de Cristo, del prisma de su amor, que se
puede, no sólo entender, sino sobre todo vivir lo que
nos corresponde como sus seguidores.
Si atendemos bien, la lista de leyes que Cristo
perfecciona en este evangelio tienen necesariamente
un punto de unión con el amor, sea a Dios o al
prójimo. Acaso, el saber perdonar al que nos ofende,
al que ha dañado nuestra familia, nuestro trabajo,
nuestro interior o nuestra situación económica, ¿no es
el acto supremo del amor? El guardar nuestra pureza
de corazón y de cuerpo, ¿no es un acto heroico de
amor a nuestro Señor? El matrimonio, ¿no se puede
traducir como fidelidad en el amor que Dios unió? Y,
la coherencia en los deberes contraídos ante Dios,
¿no es una postura de un alma que quiere amar con
Sólo Cristo nos da la fuerza, los ánimos, el
coraje y la paciencia para ser auténticos seguidores
de su Persona; sólo así, nuestro compromiso de
cristianos deja de ser un peso y se convierte en una
respuesta de amor al Amor.
Cristo viene a "dar plenitud" a ley y a los
profetas. Viene a purificar en el fuego lo que le
impide a nuestro corazón darse plenamente a Dios.
Lo que Cristo pide es un plus de justicia en la
convivencia con los demás; un plus de santidad en la
realización de nuestras tareas más ordinarias; un plus
de generosidad en nuestra oración, en la vivencia de
los sacramentos: "si su justicia no es mayor...".
Por eso para Cristo no basta hacer justicia
humana con el que nos ofende, pide que lo
perdonemos, que nos reconciliemos con él. No le
basta que no se cometa adulterio, quiere que
custodiemos la pureza de nuestro corazón con una
voluntad tajante: "si tu mano derecha es para ti
ocasión de pecado, córtatela y arrójala lejos de ti".
No le basta la ley del divorcio, sino que
correspondamos al designio divino sobre el
matrimonio (cfr. Mt 19, 4). A Cristo, en fin, no le
basta la vivencia externa de nuestros deberes de
cristianos: ¡quiere nuestra coherencia, nuestra
sinceridad de vida: "digan sí cuando sea sí..."!
