Reflection: Disciples to the End
The desire to improve, the desire to be first, the desire for accomplishment and success in life, etc; at first they seem legitimate aspirations of the human being, the problem lies in the means used to achieve those goals. Jesus calls us to be the first ones to respond and He shows us the only way to achieve the Kingdom: love and service to our brothers and sisters, specially those in need. The announcement of the Passover sees in Jesus the just man from the book of wisdom: Jesus was assassinated because he annoyed the authorities, declared God on behalf of the poor and discovered the injustice of the powerful. This presence of the martyr of the just, uncomfortable for the unjust, is a sign of contrast in today’s society; a society that despite having spent so many years we have not learned or rather we have not wanted to learn how things are done to have a more just and bearable world.
Our life should be based on serving God, others, and ourselves. And that task must be learned during our childhood with the help and advice of our parents; who have a duty and an obligation to educate children to be of service to God and others. That is why I ask you parents with all my heart to get closer to God and encourage your children so that from a young age they begin to learn to serve, and being more specific as altar boys/girls. Boys and girls who have already received First Communion or those who are ready to receive it, can be part of this group/ministry that wants to serve the Lord at the altar. Many blessings to those who
accept this call, as well as to the families.
Life has taught us that when one has a need, there are several things one can do; one of them is to stay with crossed arms and remain quiet, something that is not highly recommended. Since the need or the problem can get worse and when one wants to solve the problem, it could be too late. The other is to talk about it and act, and I prefer to stay with the second option. As you know, this pandemic has left us in a not very pleasant financial situation; because it has deprived us of income through the festivals and donations that we used to have. And to top that of we have problems with the air conditioning, which will be very expensive to repair. That is why I want to ask everyone to please help me, some families have already been responding to this need. Thank you, thank you very much and many blessings.
