WORLD MISSION SUNDAY - October 18, 2015 Please be generous! Highlights from the Pope’s message for World Mission Sunday 2015 The 2015 World Mission Sunday takes place in the context of the Year of Consecrated Life, which provides a further stimulus for prayer and reflection. There is a clear connection between consecrated life and mission. The desire to follow Jesus closely, which led to the emergence of consecrated life in the Church, responds to his call to take up the cross and follow him, to imitate his dedication to the Father and his service and love, to lose our life so as to gain it. Since Christ’s entire existence had a missionary character, so too, all those who follow him closely must possess this missionary quality. The missionary dimension, which belongs to the very nature of the Church, is also intrinsic to all forms of consecrated life, and cannot be neglected without detracting from and disfiguring its charism. Being a missionary is not about proselytizing or mere strategy; mission is part of the “grammar” of faith, something essential for those who listen to the voice of the Spirit who whispers “Come” and “Go forth.” Those who follow Christ cannot fail to be missionaries, for they know that Jesus “walks with them, speaks to them, breathes with them. They sense Jesus alive with them in the midst of the missionary enterprise (Evangelii Gaudium, 266). In Jesus’ command to ‘go forth,’ we see the scenarios and ever-present new challenges of the Church’s evangelizing mission. All her members are called to proclaim the Gospel by their witness of life; the witness of life; in a particular way, consecrated men and women are asked to listen to the voice of the Spirit who calls them to go to the peripheries, to those to whom the Gospel has not yet been proclaimed. Dear brothers and sisters, a true missionary is passionate for the Gospel. On this point there can be no compromise: those who by God’s grace accept the mission, are called to live the mission. Mission is a passion for Jesus and at the same time a passion for his people.

Columna del Pastor

Queridos feligreses,

Sé que nuestras parroquias están bendecidas con muchas personas ingeniosas. Demos nuestro mejor a Dios , vamos a reconstruir nuestra comunidad de fe que es vibrante y testimonio. Sinceramente en Cristo, Padre Thomas Kallumady

28º DOMINGO ORDINARIO 11 de octubre del 2015 Primera Lectura: Sabiduría 7:7-11 Este poema dice que el espíritu de sabiduría es mucho más bello que cualquier cantidad de riquezas. Todo el oro no es más que arena comparado con la importancia de la sabiduría, que a menudo dirige a la gente a otras cosas buenas en la vida. Segunda Lectura: Hebreos 4:12-13 La percepción que Dios tiene de la gente es “más aguda que cualquier espada de dos filos”. Dios es capaz de conocer los pensamientos y sentimientos de toda su gente. No podemos esconder nada a El, y debemos dar cuenta de todo lo que ha visto en nosotros. Evangelio: San Marcos 10:17-30 Un hombre le pregunta a Jesús cómo alcanzar la vida eterna. Jesús le dice que venda sus posesiones y viaje con El. El hombre rehúsa y Jesús dice a sus discípulos que es muy difícil que un hombre rico entre en el cielo si está tan preocupado de sus bienes. Los discípulos le recuerdan a Jesús que ellos dieron todo por El. Jesús les asegura que serán recompensados con vida eterna.

Meditacion del Evangelio. Una cosa te falta: anda, vende lo que tienes, dale el dinero a los pobres, así tendrás un tesoro en el cielo, y luego sígueme. No hay duda que en la vida cristiana hay muchos caminos que nos acercan a la perfección, aunque nunca podamos ser tan perfectos como nuestro Padre celestial: “nadie es bueno, sino sólo Dios”, le dice Jesús al hombre rico que se acercó a preguntarle. Lo importante para cada uno de nosotros es saber cuál es el camino por el que Dios quiere que caminemos hacia la perfección y buscar a Dios por ese camino. No creo que se pueda decir sin más que el camino de los laicos, o el camino de las personas consagradas, sean para todos los cristianos un camino mejor o peor que el otro. Al que Dios le llama al laicado, su mejor camino de perfección será el camino cristiano del laicado y al que Dios le llama a la vida consagrada su mejor camino de perfección será el camino cristiano de la vida consagrada. Lo importante es andar con la mayor perfección posible el camino por el que Dios quiere que caminemos. El Concilio Vaticano II nos dice que la consagración personal a Dios será tanto más perfecta cuanto mejor represente a Cristo; esto vale no sólo para las personas consagradas, sino también para los laicos. Ser buen cristiano es ser buen seguidor de Cristo, tratando de ser fieles a la vocación cristiana que Dios nos ha dado a cada uno de nosotros. Todos los cristianos estamos llamados a la perfección cristiana y cada uno de nosotros deberemos caminar hacia nuestra propia perfección caminando por el camino en el que Dios nos ha puesto. Como cada persona es única e irrepetible, así mismo el camino de cada persona para llegar a la perfección es único e irrepetible. Cumple los mandamientos... ... ve, vende todo lo que tienes y sígueme” El evangelio de hoy trata del suceso del hombre que se acercó corriendo a Jesús para pedirle su consejo: “Maestro bueno, ¿qué debo hacer para alcanzar la vida eterna?”. Jesús avanza un poco más y no sólo le propone lo básico -los 10 Mandamientos- sino que “mirándolo con amor”, le propone la máxima expresión: que renuncie a todos los bienes terrenos, para seguirlo a El. Es una invitación a desestimar la riqueza para estimar sólo a Dios. A esta persona le conocemos simplemente como el hombre que no supo seguir a Cristo “porque tenía muchos bienes”. Y... ¿nosotros? ¡Cuántas veces no hemos hecho lo mismo que este hombre! ¿Cuántas veces no hemos preferido las riquezas, el poder, las glorias, lo pasajero de este mundo, a Dios? ¿Cuántas veces nos hemos aferrado a lo perecedero, a lo que se acaba, a lo frívolo y vacío, para decir que no a Dios? ¿Cuántas veces no hemos dicho no a Dios, para cambiarlo por una posición, un dinero, una joya, un poco de riqueza?
