GRANDE RICEVIMENTO CON MUSICA, CIBO E VINO
Dal nostro DIACONO DANTE COLANDREA
Riflessione del mese di febbraio
CARA QUARESIMA
Cara Quaresima,
bentornata tra noi! So che non sei abituata ad essere
notata, ma quest'anno prometto di considerarti per quel
che meriti, un'occasione per alzare l'asticella.
Da oggi cominciano i quaranta giorni (che ricordano gli
anni di esodo degli ebrei, nel deserto, e i giorni di digiuno
e tentazione di Gesù, prima che iniziasse a predicare)
che precedono la Pasqua. La festa più importante dei
cristiani. No? Beh, così dovrebbe essere!
Da oggi iniziano giorni in cui poter, se non seguire i precetti del digiuno ecclesiastico e dell'astinenza dalla carne
il venerdì, quantomeno rimettere in discussione le nostre
priorità. Provare a riempirci un po' meno di cibo - e di
cose materiali in genere - ad ascoltare ciò che abbiamo
dentro.
E magari scoprire che molte frustrazioni, tristezze e
malesseri, ci vengono solo come conseguenza del nostro
vivere in modo vorace, e che non abbiamo un tempo
infinito per accumulare piacere sulla terra, e che presto o
tardi si tornerà ad esser cenere (che dà il nome a questo
speciale mercoledì) per cui vale la pena di pensare a chi
aspetta le nostre scuse, un nostro sorriso, o
un'attenzione che non abbiamo mai concesso.
E imparare - come recita un antico libro, il Qoelet - che
c'è un tempo giusto per ogni cosa, e vivere bene il tempo
del digiuno, porta a godere il tempo della festa. E se viviamo bene il tempo presente, arriveremo pronti al nostro
tempo per morire. Altrimenti tutta la nostra vita è inutile.
QUEST’ANNO I QUARANTA GIONI DI QUARESIMA
iniziano mercoledi’ delle ceneri, ossia il prossimo
mercoledi’ 18 febbraio. La nostra Chiesa distibuira’ le
ceneri durante le varie Messe della giornata.
SABATO, 14 MARZO 2015 – BALLO ANNUALE IN

invita ad un grande ricevimento nella sala riunione della
nostra scuola. L’offerta di $85 a persona aiutera’ la
scuola San Atanasio a creare borse di studio,
programmi dopo scuola per i bambini e a comprare
mezzi di technologia moderna per le aule della scuola.

E Il tempo del ravvedimento, che c'è nell'ebraismo,
nell'islam, e in tutte le pratiche religiose, è l'unico modo
per cambiare in meglio, per far morire in noi le cose
brutte e farne nascere di belle; per diventare uomini e
donne nuovi. Che poi, per chi ci crede, si esprime con il
termine risorgere.
Bentornata attesa!

VI DOMINGO DEL TIEMPO ORDINARIO
Tomado de la Palabra entre nosotros:
La compasión de Cristo hacia los enfermos y sus numerosas curaciones de dolientes de toda clase
son un signo maravilloso de que Dios ha visitado a su pueblo y de que el Reino de Dios esta muy
cerca. Jesús no tiene solamente poder de curar , sino tambien de perdonar los pecados. Su
compasión hacia todos los que sufren llega hasta identificarse con ellos . Su amor de predilección
para con los enfermos no ha cesado, a lo largo de los siglos , de suscitar la atención de los
cristianos hacia todos los que sufren en su cuerpo y alma.
Sin embargo los Milagros de Jesús apuntaban a una revelación mas profunda : La de que el Mesias
libraría al mundo del pecado mediante su muerte en la cruz .
Recordemos que Jesús le pidio al leproso guardar silencio despues de haber sido curado , pero por
no haber obedecido el leproso sin guardar silencio causo controversia alterando el ministerio de
Jesús hasta el final . Sin embargo Jesús sabia que su ministerio causaria conflicto y eso era
Inevitable.
Sigamos pues a nuestro Salvador que en todo obedece a su Padre celestial con amor y fidelidad.
No escojamos nosotros que obedecer y que pasar por alto; mas bien entreguemonos a Cristo de
todo Corazón , y así podremos experimentar la delicia y la bendición de una unión mas profunda
con nuestro amado Salvador y Redentor .
