the week: To love someone who doesn’‛t love us… It’‛s not easy!
Because if we know that a person doesn’‛t like us, then we also

sharing, with welcome. -from The Spirit of Saint Francis

QUINTO DOMINGO DE CUARESMA
22 DE MARZO DE 2015
Jerusalén en tiempo de Pascua congregaba a gente de
todo el mundo conocido. Los griegos no eran la
excepción, y cuando expresan su deseo de ver a Jesús,
este responde: “Ha llegado la hora de que el hijo del
hombre sea glorificado”. Ser glorificado significa para
alguien ser reconocido y aclamado por las autoridades
constituidas, por las conquistas o acciones heroicas
benéficas para su pueblo. Así es como el héroe gana
autoridad
y
mando.
Estamos
asistiendo
al
reconocimiento público del Mesías. Jesús al hablar del
trigo que no muere y queda infecundo, y del que
muere y produce mucho fruto, esta figurando el
misterio pascual. La muerte de Jesús solo tiene sentido
si es fecunda, es decir si es benéfica y productiva. Jesús
no solo ha muerto solo para resucitar.
