From the Pastor’s Desk
Del escritorio del Párroco
By Rev. David J. Gaffny
Por Pbro. David J. Gaffny
“And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country
can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.”
So spoke John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United
States, in his inaugural address, January 20, 1961.
The highest civic values as well as the highest religious
values coalesce in the concept of giving of ourselves for the
good of others. The words of Our Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ “The Son of Man has come to serve not to be served
and to give his life for the ransom of many” (Mat. 20:28)
are among the most outstanding. To love is to give. True
love is always respectful and always seeks the good of the
other.
In this same vein, marriage is a sacrament because the total
giving of the Christian spouses to each other reflects the
total commitment between Christ and his Church. (See
Ephesians 5: 22-33.) For this reason, the first thing the
husband should think of when he wakes up in the morning
is “What can I do for my wife today?” and she for him.
The second thing each should think is “What can we do for
our children?”
The reason for putting these two thoughts first is because
marriage and parenthood are the foundations of all society.
The family has rightly been called the “domestic church”
because it is the Church in miniature. The Christian family
is the first, and most important, place where the essential
teachings of Christ are taught and lived. The loving relationship of the spouses is where the children learn what
respect is, what sacrifice means, and where each child begins to understand what his or her own masculinity or femininity mean.
Patriotism, love of country, flows from the respect each
person has first for his own family, then neighbor, then for
a series of civil institutions until the whole nation is included. The quotation from Kennedy’s address cited about
was almost at the end of his speech. Another quote, from
the beginning of that talk, is pertinent here. He said, “The
same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebearers fought
– are still at issue around the globe – the belief that rights
of man come not from the generosity of the state but from
the hand of God”.
“Y por eso, compatriotas, pregúntense no lo que puede
hacer la patria para ustedes - pregunten lo que ustedes pueden hacer para la patria”. Así habló Juan F. Kennedy, el
35° Presidente de los Estados Unidos, en su discurso inaugural del 20 de enero de 1961.
Tanto los valores cívicos altísimos como los valores religiosos altísimos se unen en el concepto de dar de nosotros
mismos para el bien de otros. Las palabras de nuestro Señor y Salvador Jesucristo “El Hijo del hombre no vino para
que le sirvan, sino para servir y para dar su vida en rescate
por muchos” (Mateo 20:28) están entre las más excepcionales. Amar es darse. El amor verdadero es siempre respetuoso y busca siempre el bien del otro.
En ese mismo sentido, el matrimonio es un sacramento porque al darse totalmente los esposos cristianos el uno al otro
refleja la entrega total de Cristo y su Iglesia. (Véase Efesios
5; 22-33.) Por esta razón, la primera cosa que el marido
debe pensar cuando se despierta por la mañana es “¿Qué
puedo hacer para mi esposa hoy?” y ella para él. La segunda cosa que cada uno debe pensar es “¿Qué podemos hacer
para nuestros niños?”
La razón de poner estos dos pensamientos primero es porque el matrimonio y la paternidad son las fundaciones de
toda la sociedad. La familia es bien llamada una “iglesia
doméstica” porque es la Iglesia en miniatura. La familia
cristiana es el primer, y el más importante, sitio donde las
enseñanzas esenciales de Cristo se instruyen y se viven. La
relación cariñosa entre los esposos es donde los niños
aprenden qué es el respeto, qué significa el sacrificio, y
donde cada niño o niña comienza a entender lo que su propia masculinidad o feminidad significa.
El patriotismo, amor de la patria, procede en primer instante del respecto que cada persona tiene para su propia familia, después para el vecino, entonces para una serie de instituciones civiles hasta que se incluye la nación entera. La
cita de Kennedy mencionada arriba estaba casi al final de
su discurso. Otra cita, al principio de este, es muy apta
aquí. Él dijo, “La misma creencia revolucionaria por la
cual nuestros antepasados lucharon todavía resuena alrededor del globo - la creencia de que los derechos del hombre
vienen no de la generosidad del estado sino de la mano de
We must get our priorities straight. Our family needs what Dios”.

¡DICHOSOS LOS QUE SIN VER CREEN!
¡ El señor ha resucitado ¡ es el mensaje de María Magdalena y de las otras mujeres que temprano habían ido al sepulcro y habían descubierto la tumba vacía, sin embargo, la noticia no ha
liberado a los Apóstoles del temor. No basta tener noticia del sepulcro vacío; sólo la presencia de
Jesús puede darles seguridad en medio de un mundo hostil.
Pero todo cambia desde el momento en que Jesús –que es el centro de la comunidad- aparece en
medio, como punto de referencia, fuente de vida y factor de unidad, Su saludo les devuelve la
paz que habían perdido. Sus manos y su costado, pruebas de su pasión y muerte, son ahora los
signos de su amor y de su victoria: el que está vivo delante de ellos es el mismo que murió en la
cruz. Si tenían miedo a la muerte que podrían infligirles "los judíos", ahora ven que nadie puede quitarles la vida que él
comunica.
El efecto del encuentro con Jesús es la alegría, como él mismo había anunciado (16,20: vuestra tristeza se convertirá en
alegría). Ya ha comenzado la fiesta de la Pascua, la nueva creación, el nuevo ser humano capaz de dar la vida para dar
vida. Con su presencia Jesús les comunica su Espíritu que les da la fuerza para enfrentarse con el mundo y liberar a
hombres y mujeres del pecado, de la injusticia, del desamor y de la muerte. Para esto los envía al mundo, a un mundo
que los odia como lo odió a él (15,18). La misión de la comunidad no será otra sino la de perdonar los pecados para dar
vida, o lo que es igual, poner fin a todo lo que oprime, reprime o suprime la vida, que es el efecto que produce el pecado
en la sociedad.
Pero no todos creen. Hay uno, Tomás, el mismo que se mostró pronto a acompañar a Jesús en la muerte (Jn 11,16), que
ahora se resiste a creer el testimonio de los discípulos y no le basta con ver a la comunidad transformada por el Espíritu. No admite que el que ellos han visto sea el mismo que él había conocido; no cree en la permanencia de la vida. Exige
una prueba individual y extraordinaria. Las frases redundantes de Tomás, con su repetición de palabras (sus manos,
meter mi dedo, meter mi mano), subrayan de alguna forma su testarudez. No busca a Jesús fuente de vida, sino una
reliquia del pasado.
Necesitará para creer unas palabras de Jesús: «Trae aquí tu dedo, mira mis manos; trae tu mano y métela en mi costado,
y no seas incrédulo, sino fiel». Tomás, que no llega a tocar a Jesús, pronuncia la más sublime confesión evangélica de fe
llamando a Jesús “Señor mío y Dios mío”. Con esta doble expresión alude al maestro a quien llamaban Señor, siempre
dispuesto a lavar los pies a sus discípulos y al proyecto de Dios, realizado ahora en Jesús, de hacer llegar al ser humano
a la misma presencia de Dios y ya realizado ahora en Jesús, como un (Dios mío)..
Pero su actitud incrédula le merece un reproche de parte de Jesús, que pronuncia una última bienaventuranza para todos los que ya no podrán ni verlo ni tocarlo y tendrán, por ello, que descubrirlo en la comunidad y notar en ella su presencia siempre viva. De ahora en adelante la realidad de Jesús vivo no se percibe con elucubraciones ni buscando experiencias individuales y aisladas, sino que se manifiesta en la vida y conducta de una comunidad que es expresión de
amor, de vida y de alegría. Una comunidad, cuya idea de vida se refleja en el libro de los Hechos (4,32-35): comunidad
de pensamientos y sentimientos comunes, de puesta en común de los bienes y de reparto igualitario de los mismos como expresión de su fe en Jesús resucitado, una comunidad de amor como defiende la primera carta de Juan (1 Jn 5,1-5).
Ahora Cristo está presente en la comunidad y es en ella en la cual se manifiesta obrando y realizando lo que el padre le
había encomendado atravéz del Espíritu Santo que sopla aliento de vida eterna sobre su Iglesia.

Thoughts on Stewardship
All that we are and all that we have is a gift from God! Think of your family, your
friends, your talents and abilities – these are all gifts from God. We aren’t really
owners of anything, we are merely “stewards” of the gifts God has blessed us with.
“The community of believers was of one heart and mind and no one claimed that
any of his possessions was his own.”
- Acts 4:32
Stewardship Commitment forms are available at the church office or on our church
