Solemnity of All Saints - Nov. 1, 2015 “Now is the time for a new ‘creativity’ in charity, not only by ensuring that help is effective but also by ‘getting close’ to those who suffer, so that the hand that helps is seen not as a humiliating handout but as a sharing between brothers and sisters. We must therefore ensure that in every Christian community the poor feel at home” (St. John Paul II, Novo Millennio Ineunte).

ANUNCIOS EN ESPAÑOL Solemnidad de Todos los Santos - Noviembre 1ero. de 2015

"Ahora es el tiempo de una nueva 'creatividad' en la caridad, no sólo a través de asegurarnos de que la ayuda es efectiva sino también por medio del 'acercarnos' a aquellos que sufren, de tal manera en que la mano que ayuda no sea vista como una ayuda humillante sino como un acto en el que hermanos y hermanas comparten.

What About Hypocrites Our English word hypocrite comes from a Greek word that is pronounced almost the same. The Greeks often used the word to describe acting, but its root meaning is closer to this: "One who pretends or acts under a mask." We might describe such a person as "two faced." There are several places in the gospels where Jesus calls the Pharises hypocrites because they say one thing and do another. Their actions appear to be part of a show so that others will think that they are holy and good. Jesus cuts to the heart of the matter when he points out that clinging to the letter of the law is not what makes someone holy. Rather, it is the person with a pure heart free of greed, malice, envy, and evil of all kinds who is closer to God. Jesus has the Old Testament Scriptures on his side. Psalm 15 lays out a wonderful description of the ones who will dwell with God forever in heaven. First and foremost, they are not hypocrites. Rather, they have integrity of heart and speak the truth(15:2). They "never defame a neighbor" (15:3). They practice what they preach and do it for the greater glory of God. We all have moments when we act better (or sometimes worse) than we are because we want to appear differently to others. The challenge today is to be genuine, to let love of God become the model for how we love. Then we will have no need to worry about whether we are following the law. Our own actions will tell us so.

Will hypocrites have eternal life? No!
