ANNUALE PROCESSIONE DELLA NOSTRA PARROCCHIA
IN ONORE DI SAN ANTONIO
Dal nostro DIACONO DANTE COLANDREA
Riflessione del mese di maggio
IL CORPO DEL SIGNORE
Il Signore Gesù dice ai suoi discepoli: “Io sono la via, la
verità e la vita; nessuno viene al Padre se non per mezzo
di me. Se aveste conosciuto me, conoscereste anche il
Padre mio; ma da ora in poi voi lo conoscete e lo avete
veduto.” Gli dice Filippo: “Signore, mostraci il Padre e ci
basta”. Gesù gli dice: “Da tanto tempo sono con voi e non
mi avete conosciuto? Filippo, chi vede me, vede anche il
Padre mio” (Gv 14,6-9).
Il Padre abita una luce inaccessibile, e Dio è od oi, e
nessuno ha mai visto Dio (cf. 1Tm 6,16; Gv 4,24 e 1,18).
Perciò non può essere visto che nello Spirito, poiché è lo
Spirito che dà la vita; la carne non giova a nulla (Gv 6,64
Vg). Ma che il Figlio, in ciò in cui è uguale al Padre, non è
visto da alcuno in maniera diversa da come si vede il
Padre né da come si vede lo Spirito Santo.
Perciò tutti coloro che videro il Signore Gesù od oi
l’umanità, ma non videro né credettero, od oi lo Spirito e
la divinità, che egli è il vero Figlio di Dio, sono
condannati. E così ora tuti quelli che vedono il
sacramento, che viene santificato per mezzo delle parole
del Signore sopra l’altare nelle mani del sacerdote, sotto
le specie del pane e del vino, e non vedono e non
credono, od oi lo Spirito e la divinità, che è veramente il
santissimo corpo e il sangue del Signore nostro Gesù
Cristo, sono condannati, perché ne dà testimonianza lo
stesso Altissimo, il quale dice: “Questo è il mio corpo e il
mio sangue della nuova alleanza (che sarà sparso per
molti”) (Mc 14,22.24); e ancora: “Chi mangia la mia carne
e beve il mio sangue, ha la vita od oil” (Gv 6,55 Vg).
E perciò lo Spirito del Signore, che abita nei suoi fedeli, è
lui che riceve il santissimo corpo e sangue del Signore.
Tutti gli altri, che hanno la presunzione di riceverlo senza
partecipare dello stesso Spirito, mangiano e bevono “la
loro condanna” (cf. 1Cor 11,29). Perciò: “Figli degli
uomini, fino a quando sarete duri di cuore?” (Sal 4,3)
Perché non conoscete la verità e non credete “nel figlio di
Dio?” (cf. Gv 9,35).
Ecco, ogni giorno egli si umilia (cf. Fil 2,8), come quando
“dalla sede regale” (Sap 18,15) discese nel grembo della
Vergine; ogni giorno egli stesso viene a noi in apparenza
umile; ogni giorno discende dal seno del Padre sull’altare
nelle mani del sacerdote. E come ai santi od oilc si
mostrò nella vera carne, così anche ora si mostra a noi
nel pane consacrato.
E come essi con la vista del loro corpo vedevano soltanto
la carne di lui, ma, contemplandolo con occhi spirituali,
credevano che egli era lo stesso Dio, così anche noi,
vedendo pane e vino con gli occhi del corpo, dobbiamo
vedere e credere fermamente che è il suo santissimo
corpo e sangue vivo e vero. E in tal od oil Signore è
sempre con I suoi fedeli, come egli stesso dice: “Ecco, io
sono con voi sino alla fine del mondo” (Mt 28,20).

DOMINGO DEL SANTISIMO CUERPO
Y LA SANGRE DE CRISTO
Hoy conmemoramos la solemnidad del Santisimo Cuerpo y Sangre
de Cristo .
La Eucaristia es la Obra de un amor inmenso .Es la muestra de
amor mas grande por parte de
Dios . Jesucristo quizo quedarse
para siempre entre nosotros. En el desierto tomo cinco panes , los
bendijo y con ellos tuvieron los apóstoles bastante para alimentar a
cinco mil hombres . Una imagen identica de esta maravilla de
milagro es la Eucaristia. Jesús nos ama a todos y quiere darse a cada uno de manera que uno
pueda recojer la parte que le corresponde de este maná. Es necesario que se multiplique cuantas
veces lo necesiten y lo quieran , por decir asi , para que la Eucaristia cubra el mundo entero. En
esto esta el misterio de su poder .
Cuantos lo recibimos sacramentalmente en la comunión , lo recibimos entero , por que cada una
de las hostias contienen el cuerpo entero de Cristo. Cuantas hostias ha dispuesto Cristo para
darse al mundo entero? Muchas e infinitas . Para estar siempre a disposición de cada uno .
Celebremos con fe y con respeto el dia del Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo , conmemoremos una
vez mas la llegada para siempre entre nosotros de este misterio salvifico , donde Jesús se da a
cada uno de nosotros y a su vez entrega su vida en favor de quienes mas lo necesitamos.
