A Vocation Reflection th 12 Sunday in Ordinary Time Elizabeth trusted in the Lord, who promised she would give birth even though she was advanced in age. Sometimes following God’s call seems like it might be difficult, or even dangerous. In Jesus Christ, though, we’ve learned that God always keeps His promises. Are you a young woman who believes she might be called to religious life? Does it seem strange, out of synch, risky, maybe even too difficult in today’s world? If you’d like to explore the call, contact Father the adventure of a lifetime, call or write Father Norm Carroll, Diocesan Director of Priestly and Religious Vocations at (302) 573-3113 or [email protected]

XII DOMINGO DEL TIEMPO ORDINARIO I Lectura 2 Zacarías 12:10-11; 13:1 Salmo Responsorial . Salmo 63 “ Mi alma está sedienta de ti, Señor, Dios mío”. II Lectura Gálatas 3: 26-29 Evangelio Lucas 9: 18-24 Hoy los discípulos se ven urgidos a expresar la identidad de Jesús. El que sigue a jesús opta, de hecho por asimilarse al modo de ser de su maestro. La cruz es su distintivo diario. No por mazoquismo enfermizo ni por piedad subliminal, sino como un medio de salvación. Renunciar al propio proyecto para abrazar el de Jasús es condición indispensable para hacer la experiencia cdel Reino de Dios entre nosotros. En esto consiste la vida cristiana. Sin la experiencia de la cruz, no hay fe ni discípulado cristiano. Esta verdad es la que revivimos en la liturgia de hoy. Es su sufrimiento y muerte de cruz, Cristonos hermana a todos, para vivir con él. El Evangelio de hoy, vemos que Jesús toma la pregunta que le hace a los discípulos sobre quien es él, y nos la regresa para decirnos quienes debemos ser nosotros. Si queremos seguirlo debemos de estar dispuesto a hacer lo que él hizo por nosotros; esto es cargar nuestra cruz día a día. Al reflexionar hoy sobre estas lecturas, quizas podamos hacernos la pregunta de ¿Cómo perder nuestra vida para poder salvarla?
