Lent Day 36

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

John 8:31-42

Friends, today in our Gospel Jesus confronts those Jewish leaders who want to kill him, telling them that they are hardened in their sin. He speaks, “Amen, amen, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin.”

In our tradition, sin is a kind of non-being, an illusion, if you will. To live in sin is to live stubbornly in an unreal world. Our mind becomes confused, and our will disoriented. This helps explain why the devil is often referred to as the father of lies.

Theologian Henri de Lubac gives voice to this conviction when he refers to sin as cette claudication mystérieuse, this mysterious limp. It is a deformation, a corruption.

All of us sinners have, to one degree or another, bought into the lie. At the heart of the lie—and we can see it in the Genesis account—is the deification of the ego. I become the center of the universe, I with my needs and my fears and my demands.

And when the puny “I” is the center of the cosmos, the tie that binds all things to one another is lost. The basic reality now becomes rivalry, competition, violence, and mistrust.

Cuaresma Día 36

Miércoles, 21 de marzo de 2018

Juan 8:31-42

Amigos, en nuestro Evangelio de hoy Jesús se enfrenta con los líderes Judíos que querían matarlo, diciéndoles que estaban endurecidos en su pecado. Él les dice, “Les aseguro que todo el que peca es esclavo del pecado”.

En nuestra tradición, el pecado es una especie de no-ser, una ilusión, por así decirlo. Vivir en pecado es vivir obstinadamente en un mundo irreal. Nuestra mente se confunde y nuestra voluntad se desorienta. Esto ayuda a explicar por qué a menudo nos referimos al diablo como padre de las mentiras.

El teólogo Henri de Lubac confirma esta convicción cuando se refiere al pecado como cette claudication mystérieuse, esa claudicación misteriosa, esa misteriosa renguera. Es una deformación, una corrupción.

Todos nosotros pecadores, de un modo u otro, hemos comprado una mentira. En el corazón de la mentira—y podemos verlo en el relato del Génesis—está la edificación del ego. Nos convertimos en centro del universo, yo con mis necesidades, mis miedos y mis demandas.

Y cuando el pobre “yo” es centro del cosmos, se pierde el lazo que une todas las cosas. La realidad básica ahora se convierte en rivalidad, competencia, violencia y desconfianza.



Vocation Corner

Recognizing Our Gifts

"In order to discern why you are created you must first be able to recognize the true gifts that God has given you. In recognizing our gifts we come to see that every gift God has placed in us is for only two things; the glorification and God and the salvation of souls. So God wants to teach us that how to use a gift not for ourselves but for others. For example when a kid gets a bike for his birthday he joyfully asks his father how to ride the bike. His father then teaches him and then the boy goes out to ride it. As he rides the bike people see him and say, 'Jimmy, great bike!' Jimmy responds,  'Yeah isn't it amazing! My dad gave it to me.' You see the boy gave the praise to his father for the gift he had received. We too should be doing the same thing for our gifts. We should be asking God to teach us how to use them, when to use them, and then when people notice the gifts we must give God the glory saying, 'Yeah my dad gave it to me isn't it great!' Ask God what gifts He has given you. Then ask Him to teach you how to use them and where He desires them to be used. The gift leads to the giver and the giver then shows which vocation the gifts are best suited for!
