Faith in Jesus Christ

Marks Gospel account today is built on a double astonishment or


amazement: the neighbors and family of Jesus are astonished that he taught in
ROSARYIN THE CHURCH
the synagogue with wisdom and worked powerful signs. Jesus, in turn, is
amazed that they have no faith in him because they know his origins, not
1st & 2nd Tuesdays: 10:00 am
because of any fault with his teaching or ministry. As with many of Marks
Saturday: 5:00 pm5:30 pm
passages, we get a rather intimate glimpse here of the human part of Jesus
Sunday: 8:30 am9:00 am
two fold nature. To reinforce his point, Mark tells of Jesus return to his native
131 Ward Street, Macon, GA 31204 place, and further points out that he is in the midst of his own family members
there. From the very people he expected the most, Jesus received the least.

In the day of the Gospels writing, Mark was attempting to illustrate a lesson to

the house of Israel, but often received the least. This is a good source for

FE EN JESUCRISTO
El incidente que nos cuenta san Marcos en el
Evangelio de hoy se basa en un doble asombro: primero, los vecinos y parientes de Jess se asombran de
verlo ensear en la sinagoga con tanta sabidura, y de
ver su poder para hacer milagros. Y Jess, a su vez, se
extraa de la incredulidad de aquella gente, que no
pone su fe en l, no porque hallen alguna falta en su
enseanza o en su ministerio, sino porque conocen sus
orgenes y su familia. Aqu, como en muchos otros
incidentes de su Evangelio, Marcos nos deja ver un
aspecto bastante n mo de la parte humana de la doble naturaleza de Jess. Para reforzar lo que quiere
que veamos, Marcos nos cuenta cmo Jess vuelve a
su pueblo, y nos hace notar que est all entre sus
familiares. Y de la gente de quienes ms esperaba es
que menos recibe. En la poca en que estaba escribiendo su Evangelio, san Marcos trataba de ensear
una leccin muy importante para la casa de Israel, el
Dios de la Alianza esperaba encontrar la fe ms intensa
en la casa de Israel, pero muchas veces all fue donde
menos la encontr. Y es bueno que reflexionemos
sobre esto, nosotros que hoy da somos el Pueblo de
Dios. Para que la Sabidura de Cristo con ne en este
mundo, y para que nuestras vidas sean signos de su
poder, Jess espera hallar, y ene que hallar, una gran
fe en nosotros. La hallar? O quedar, una vez ms,

UNA VIDA, UNA ROSA


Como catlicos, somos llamados a ser un pueblo de
vida y un pueblo para la vida. El desafio que tenemos por
delante es enserar al mundo que la vida de cada ser humano,
unica e irrepetible, comienza en el momento de la concepcin y
finalize por muerte natural. Para lograr esto, nos volvemos a la
Santa Virgen Mara, bajo su titulo de Nuestra Seora de Guadalupe, buscamos la gracia y la fuerza para dar testimonio de la
realidad de que toda vida humana es sagrada.
Aprovechamos esta oportunidad de orar el Rosario
pidiendo a nuestra Madre de Guadalupe el respeto por la
santidad de la vida humana en todo el mundo.

Ser profeta

Las lecturas y su mensaje

Ez 2:2-5
Ezequiel era sacerdote por haber nacido de una familia
sacerdotal. Adems de ese oicio, heredado, Dios llama a
Ezequiel a ser profeta, es decir, el portavoz de la palabra de Dios.
2 Cor 12:7b-10
En empos de Pablo, algunos se haban adjudicado a s
mismos el oicio de lderes espirituales. Pablo ene que hablar de
sus propios tulos, pero lo hace con algo de resistencia. Asegura
que es Cristo quien vive en l. Para conirmar, hace una confesin dram ca, hablando de su debilidad. No se sabe bien qu
es el aguijn al que se reiere. Podra ser una enfermedad o el
rechazo del Evangelio por parte de los judos. Eso lo
man ene dbil y es ah donde reconoce que se maniiesta la
fuerza de Dios.
Mc 6:1-6
Se comenta que los parientes de Jess van a buscarlo,
porque pensaban que estaba fuera de s. En ese contexto se nos
presenta una vez ms la distancia que se ha creado entre Jess y
los suyos. La gente est fascinada frente a la palabra de autoridad y los signos de poder que hace Jess. Los suyos en cambio,
sus conocidos y parientes de Nazaret no se muestran dispuestos
a aceptar su palabra. A pesar de este rechazo, el Reino sigue
actuando, aunque a veces no pueda manifestarse plenamente,
porque los habitantes de Nazaret, como Israel, son una casa
rebelde. Quiz se deba agregar aqu una palabra sobre
hermanos, que en sen do sem co ene un sen do ms amplio y sirve para referirse a todo el clan o grupo familiar.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
Segn la carta a los Hebreos 6:1-2 hay seis fundamentos de la
fe cris ana. Entre ellos se encuentra la imposicin de manos. El
evangelista Marcos (6:5) nos relata que Jess usaba la imposicin
de manos para sanar a los enfermos. La curacin se realizaba mediante sus manos. Los hispanos normalmente somos tc les, pues
reconocemos la importancia de una caricia, de una mano apretando la nuestra, de una palmada en el hombro, y de otros toques de
mano. Las manos enen el poder o la facultad de transmi r sen mientos.
En los Hechos de los Apstoles 8:17 y 19:6 se nos relata que
los fieles reciban el don del Espritu Santo mediante la imposicin
de manos. Los apstoles usaban la imposicin de manos para
transmi r el Espritu a los bau zados y para consagrar nuevos lderes al servicio de las comunidades cris anas (obispos o presbteros). Al momento del Bau smo y de la Confirmacin recibimos
una imposicin de manos de parte del ministro. La imposicin de
manos que ha venido desde los apstoles, y desde ms atrs, nos
relaciona a los cris anos que nos han precedido. Es un gesto de
unidad. Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright J. S. Paluch Co.
