HOMILIA DE HOY
Proyecto de Homilía
En vez del Evangelio
según san Juan, se
puede proclamar el
Evangelio según san
Marcos de la Vigilia
(véanse los comentarios
de la Vigilia).
• Desde aquel “primer día después del sábado”
hasta este primer día de Pascua de 2015, el
centro de la fe cristiana es la proclamación de
Pedro acerca de Jesús: “Dios lo resucitó al tercer
día”. Aunque a diferencia de Pedro nosotros no
hemos visto a Jesús en persona, sí lo hemos
visto en personas. Aunque nuestra vida “está
escondida con Cristo en Dios”, nuestro bautismo
nos constriñe a convertirnos en “el pan sin
levadura, que es de sinceridad y verdad” y que
se parte y se comparte con los demás, porque
“hemos comido y bebido con él después de que
resucitó de entre los muertos”.
• Al igual que María Magdalena, nosotros
somos inspirados a seguir a Jesús por amor;
pero pueda que también nuestro mundo esté
“todavía oscuro”. Junto a otros contemporáneos
nuestros, aun entre los creyentes, pueda que
algunas veces tengamos que admitir que “no
sabemos dónde” está Jesús. Aunque estamos
ansiosos por creer como Pedro y como el otro
discípulo que corrió, uno solo “vio” el sepulcro
vacío; y aunque el otro “vio y creyó”, en
realidad “hasta entonces no habían entendido”.
Así se nos recuerda que el Jesús que buscamos
no está muerto en un sepulcro, sino vivo en
todas aquellas personas que necesitan
diariamente de nuestro amor.
• El camino de Emaús en el Evangelio de Lucas
tiene lugar en la tarde de la primera Pascua y es
un exponente de la Eucaristía. “Donde dos o tres
se reúnen” en nombre de Jesús, él está presente
aun si no lo reconocemos. “¡Qué insensatos” y
“qué duros de corazón” somos nosotros a
menudo, pero Jesús hará que arda nuestro
corazón si escuchamos la Palabra; gustosamente
se quedará con nosotros si lo invitamos; y
entonces hará que lo reconozcamos “al partir el
pan” en un momento que, aunque fugaz, nos da
la fortaleza suficiente para regresar al mundo y
dar testimonio.
Pregunta de la Semana
¿A qué situación específica, donde la fe, la
esperanza y el amor parecen haber desaparecido,
puedo dirigirme esta semana y todo el tiempo de
Pascua para compartir la alegría y la paz que he
experimentado como dones de Jesús resucitado?

donation in the box marked
CHRIST RENEWS HIS PARISH
This is why the early Christians moved the
Church’s Sabbath from Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath,
to Sunday, the day of the Resurrection of Jesus. In
fact, the Church from the earliest days until today,
understands weekly gathering for Sunday liturgy as a
“little Easter,” since the Mass is a celebration and
sacrifice of the death and Resurrection of Christ each
time.
EASTER CHUKLES
All I need to know I
learned from the
Easter Bunny
Don’t put all your eggs in one
basket.
Everyone needs a friend who is
all ears.
There’s no such thing as too much candy.
All work and no play can make you a basket case.
Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.
Keep your paws off of other people’s jelly beans.
Good things come in small, sugar coated packages.
The best things in life are still sweet and sugary.
May all of us be overflowing with joy today!
May we be eager and anxious to share our faith in the
Risen Christ with everyone we meet! May we freely
tell of all the wonderful blessings that this brings to
our own lives. May we especially share this message
with those who do not have faith or who are finding it
difficult to rejoice and be hopeful! Our Easter
message sends us on a mission. It is a call for us to
whole-heartedly live that message and all it means May the Joy of Easter fill your heart.
each day of our lives among everyone we meet!
AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU! HAPPY EASTER!
