Spiritual Notes:
Most people don’t realize that the Ten
Commandments are written in the second person
singular. That means that God is addressing us
individually, not as a group. Each of us is called to
follow God’s commands. In giving these words to
Moses and the Israelites, God is inviting them into
a covenant relationship, one that will be ratified
later with a sacrificial meal. God’s desire is for an
exclusive relationship with the people “You shall
not have other gods besides me.” The people have
just left Egypt, a nation where hundreds of gods were
worshiped. This relationship is based on the fact
that it is the Lord “who brought you out of the land
of Egypt;” therefore he says, “I, the Lord, and your
God.” The Egyptians may worship other gods, but
Israel is called to be loyal to only the Lord. Paul tells
the Corinthians that the core of the gospel message
“Christ crucified” may seem foolish to others, but to
those who are called, it expresses “the power of God
and the wisdom of God.” What seems foolish and
weak to the world is actually the means by which
God brings about our salvation. Jesus’ cleansing of
the Jerusalem temple, found earlier in John’s text
than in the Synoptics, casts the shadow of the cross
over his entire ministry. The other evangelists place
this event during the last week of Jesus’ life. John
tells us that Jesus “went to Jerusalem” for the feat
of Passover. Though not the highest mountain in
Israel, the mountain of Jerusalem is viewed as the
high point of the Jewish theological world, and
so in the biblical text on “goes up” to Jerusalem.
Encountering the merchants selling animals for
sacrifice and the money – changers, Jesus drives
them out, commanding “Stop making my Father’s
house a marketplace.” This action against the
temple will be a key charge against Jesus at His trial
for in challenging the temple and its institutions,
He is challenging the leadership of Judaism as well.
For reflection: Are there times when I think that God’s
commandments don’t apply to me? Do I consider my
local place of worship a spiritual high place in my
world view?

Update on the Lighting Project
Thank you for your generous support on
our “Lighting Project!” We want to take this
opportunity to update our parishioners on how
the project is progressing. The lighting project is
in its final stages. There are still a few adjustments
to be made by the lighting company. The total
cost was estimated at $146,500.00. The final cost
is yet to be determined. However, it is expected
to be very close to the original estimate. Currently
we have paid $74,991.00 for this project. We are
anticipating the final bill to be approximately
$71,509. Including a grant from the Catholic
Foundation for $28,000.00, the funds received to
date total $78,967.00. Therefore we are still in need
of contributions totaling $67,533.00. Thank you
again for your continued support.

Divine Mercy
In admitting his sin, King David does not try to shift
the blame toward God or elsewhere. He recognizes
that God renders rightful judgment and shares
none of the blame for David’s sin. For I know my
transgressions; my sin is always before me. Against
you, you alone have I sinned; I have done what is
evil in your eyes So that you are just in your word
and without reproach in your judgment. Behold, I
was born in guilt, in sin my mother conceived me
(Psalm 51:5-7). Here, David gets to the root of the
nature we inherited from our first parents – original
sin. Because of our damaged human nature, from
the moment of conception, we are all prone toward
sin. Jesus confirms this reality in dealing with those
who brought the adulteress to him for judgment
(see John 8:3-11). Jesus tells the accusers. “Let the
man among you who have no sin be the first to case
a stone at her” (John 8:7) What was their response?

ayuno. Cuarenta días que la iglesia nos pide un cambio
a nuestras vidas. El ayuno consiste en hacer una sola
comida al día y la abstinencia es no comer carne. Este
es un modo de pedirle perdón a Dios por haberlo
ofendido y decirle que queremos cambiar de vida para
agradarle siempre.

La mayoría de las personas no se dan cuenta de que
los Diez Mandamientos están escritos en la segunda
persona del singular. Que significa que Dios se
dirige a nosotros de forma individual, no como
grupo. Cada uno de nosotros está llamado a seguir
los mandamientos de Dios. Al dar estas palabras
a Moisés y los israelitas, Dios los está invitando
a una relación de pacto, que será ratificada más
tarde con una comida sacrificial. El deseo de Dios
es para una relación exclusiva con el pueblo: “No
tendrás otros dioses delante de mí.” Las personas
que acaban de salir de Egipto, una nación donde se
adoraba a cientos de dioses. Esta relación se basa
en el hecho de que es el Señor ,” que te saqué de la
tierra de Egipto”; Por lo tanto, dice, “Yo, el Señor,
soy tu Dios.” Los egipcios pueden adorar a otros
dioses, pero Israel está llamado a ser leal sólo al
SEÑOR. Pablo le dice a los corintios que el núcleo
del mensaje del evangelio - “Cristo crucificado” puede parecer tonto a los demás, sino a los que son
llamados, expresa “el poder de Dios y sabiduría de
Dios.” Lo que parece tonto y débil para el mundo
en realidad es el medio por el cual Dios produce
nuestra salvación. La limpieza de Jesús del templo
de Jerusalén, presentada anteriormente en el texto
de Juan que en los sinópticos, proyecta la sombra
de la cruz sobre todo su ministerio. El otro lugar
evangelista de este evento durante la última semana
de la vida de Jesús. Juan nos dice que Jesús “subió a
Jerusalén” para la fiesta de la Pascua. Aunque no es
la montaña más alta de Israel, el monte de Jerusalén
es vista como el punto más alto del mundo teológico
judío, y así en el texto bíblico se “sube” a Jerusalén.
El encuentro con los comerciantes que venden los
animales para el sacrificio y a los mercaderes, Jesús
los lleva a cabo, al mando, “Deja de hacer la casa de
mi Padre un mercado.” Esta acción contra el templo
será un cargo clave en contra de Jesús en su juicio,
para desafiar el templo y sus instituciones, que está
desafiando el liderazgo del judaísmo también.
Para reflexionar: ¿Hay momentos en que pienso
que los mandamientos de Dios no se aplican para mí?
¿Considero mi lugar de culto local (parroquia iglesia,
capilla, catedral) un alto lugar espiritual en mi visión
del mundo?
