Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time
23 de agosto de 2015 • Vigésimo
Primer Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
After the debate and his long discourse and
patient—then urgent—insistence that they had heard him
right, we pause. The crowd pauses. Everything hangs in the
balance. Jesus waits. First, the adversaries drift away. This is
no surprise. But then some of the followers turn away, too.
And Jesus’ words are more poignant than ever. He turns to the
Twelve and asks, “Do you also want to leave?” (John 6:67).
Sabemos lo que es hacer un regalo y darnos
cuenta de que no es aceptado con la gratitud
que esperábamos. Hoy, podemos ver que Jesús
ha entregado su vida. No entregaba algo externo
a sí mismo, algo que hizo con sus manos o que
compró con el fruto de su arduo trabajo. Se
ofrecía a sí mismo como pan para el mundo.
Después del debate y su largo discurso, y
paciente, luego urgente, insistencia de que
habían oído correctamente, hacemos silencio. La multitud
hace silencio. Todo pende de un hilo. Jesús espera. Primero, los
adversarios se alejan. Esto no es sorpresa. Pero luego algunos
de los seguidores se apartan también. Y las palabras de Jesús
son más conmovedoras que nunca. Se dirige a los Doce y les
pregunta: “¿También ustedes quieren dejarme?” (Juan 6:67).
This question is also set before us. Peter speaks for the
apostles: “You are the Holy One of God” (John 6:69). They
have been with him for so long. They have experienced his
deep humanity and touched the edge of what they discern to
be divinity. But can they make that wild leap? Well, yes, they
can and they do. They will surely fail in the coming years, but
they make their intentions known here.
The same eternal life is his gift freely and generously given.
All we can do is receive this gift of life—or not. Jesus says, in
effect, “Can you receive me as the bread of your life?”
Can we shape our life around this Eucharist? Can it make
a difference tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow? Can we
return every Sunday and assemble with people we know—
and perhaps know too well—and try again? Can our life in
him make a difference in this world today?
We can just say “Yes.” The rest is up to God.
Esta pregunta también se nos hace a nosotros. Pedro habla
por los Apóstoles: “Tú eres el Santo de Dios” (Juan 6:69).
Han estado con él por mucho tiempo. Habían conocido su
profunda humanidad y palpado el margen de lo que sintieron
era la divinidad. ¿Pero pueden dar ese salto audaz? Bien, sí,
pueden y lo hacen. Sin duda fallarán en los próximos años,
pero declaran aquí sus intenciones.
La misma vida eterna es su regalo hecho libre y
generosamente. Lo único que podemos hacer es recibir o no
este regalo de vida. Jesús dice, en efecto: “¿Puedes recibirme
como el pan de tu vida?”
¿Podemos dar forma a nuestra vida alrededor de esta
Eucaristía? ¿Puede hacer que las cosas sean diferentes
mañana y en los días que vendrán? ¿Podemos regresar cada
domingo y reunirnos con la gente que conocemos, y tal vez
conocemos muy bien, e intentarlo de nuevo? ¿Puede nuestra
vida en él hacer que el mundo de hoy sea diferente?
Podemos simplemente decir “Sí”. El resto depende de Dios.
We know what it’s like to give a gift and realize that it is not being accepted with the gratitude for which we had hoped. Today, we can see
that Jesus has laid his life on the line. He wasn’t
giving something external to himself, a gift he
made with his own two hands or bought with
his hard-earned labor. He was offering himself,
himself as bread for the world.

QUESTIONS What is faith? How does faith grow?
What do Catholics believe and why is it different from
other faith traditions? How different is it really? Classes

anyone who wants to learn more about the Catholic faith.
The process begins with an “inquiry period”, when
questions lead to exploration. If you or someone you
know is interested in learning more about the Catholic
faith, please call Deacon Dale Hayden at 281-585-4109 or
281-731-8299 or at [email protected]
40 Days of Prayer and Fasting.
Facts about Fasting
Fasting Stops wars.
Fasting Can suspend the laws of nature.
Fasting reduces punishments from God.
Fasting is an arm, a weapon of significant power to defeat
and conquer Satan.
By giving our fasting to Our Lady, it “forces” Satan not to
be able to deuce us to evil and drives him away.
Fasting, to be powerful, must be done with the heart.
Bread and water is the best fast.
