TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
Many of our customs surrounding critical illness come from antiquity, and yet attitudes have certainly
changed. Death was an all‑too-familiar presence then, and people tended to see it as a natural and unavoidable part of life, not a personal catastrophe. People tried to review their lives, settle their affairs, say farewell
to their dear ones, and welcome the deathbed vigils and prayers that assured them of God’s love and forgiveness. What people most feared was sudden death. It was dreaded and never discussed.
The faithful filled the catacombs with consoling images of the good shepherd carrying the sheep to safe
pasture, or the faithful in glory seated at banquet tables. The prayer texts from the time are consoling and
positive, and many inspired our modern prayers. The care of the dying flowed directly from Roman pagan
practice; it was home‑based and family‑centered. Pagans didn’t especially fear death, but they were terrified
by the dead. Christians, on the other hand, consoled their sick with psalms of joy and faith in the Resurrection. The goal was to assure the sick person of God’s love, and that the ties that bind the dead and the living
would endure.

CUARTO DOMINGO DE PASCUA
26 DE ABRIL DE 2015
PÁGINA HISPANA
TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
Imágenes antiguas de Cristo lo mostraban como un pastor joven cargando una ovejita en sus
hombros. Él mismo se presenta como el buen Pastor (Juan 10:11). Esta imagen que nos conforta con
el amor de Cristo, es en realidad una imagen radical. Hay que saber dos cosas sobre el pastor palestino de aquella época: 1) los pastores eran considerados sucios, peligrosos y ladrones, y 2) cuando
cargaban una ovejita era porque ellos mismos le
habían quebrado la pierna.
¿Porque Jesús se describe como uno de ellos?
Jesús ve más allá de las apariencias y los estereotipos, y se asocia con aquellas personas que la sociedad de su tiempo odiaba y marginaba. Por voluntad propia decide estar entre los pobres y despreciados. Si Jesús viniera a la tierra en nuestro
tiempo, se describiría a sí mismo como el buen inmigrante.
En cuanto a la ovejita sobre el hombre: en casos extremos, de ovejas rebeldes que se alejaban
del rebaño, los pastores tenían que quebrarles la
pierna para cargarlas sobre los hombros. De esta
manera las amansaban para que no se alejaran de
él. Dios no hace esto en nosotros, pero tampoco
nos evita el sufrimiento. Antes bien, nos ayuda a
llevarlo de manera heroica, como lo hizo con el
santo Job.
