Saint Joseph

Eight Sunday in Ordinary Time : Februar 26, 2017

The early Christian community celebrated the Eucharist in secret for fear of the existing persecution by the Roman Empire. In this context, today’s liturgical texts speak of God’s protection for those who serve him in spite of the dangers that they may face. In the Gospel, Jesus affirms the choices people make out of their free will, but warns that one can not serve God and money at the same time. The true stewards of the Lord must be faithful to the tasks God has placed before them, and God will never abandon them. This theme echoes the words of Isaiah in today’s first reading. God will never forget his people, as a mother never forgets her child.

This marvelous image helps us recognize the depth of the Father’s love for each of us through his only son, Jesus Christ. The themes in today’s readings can help parish councils involved with the coordination and administration of the community, who, with their pastor, work to build the reign of God among the faithful.

For Christians, might is not right

February 26, 2017

82. Yet it would also be mistaken to view other living beings as mere objects subjected to arbitrary human domination. When nature is viewed solely as a source of profit and gain, this has serious consequences for society. This vision of “might is right” has engendered immense inequality, injustice and acts of violence against the majority of humanity, since resources end up in the hands of the first comer or the most powerful: the winner takes all. Completely at odds with this model are the ideals of harmony, justice, fraternity and peace as proposed by Jesus. As he said of the powers of his own age: “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them. It shall not be so among you; but whoever would be great among you must be your servant” (Mt 20:25-26).
