A Message from Father Bob

FACING OPPOSITION AND DIVISION IN OUR LIVES

We can endure opposition without growing weary or losing heart; just like Jesus did.  In today’s readings the Prophet Jeremiah is thrown into a cistern (a well) because the leaders do not like his messages from God.  Jesus says that some people in our families will not like it when we are dedicated Catholic Christians.  He says that sometimes families will become divided because of their disagreements about following Jesus and living the Catholic faith.  In our second reading it says, “Consider how Jesus endured such opposition, in order that you may not grow weary and lose heart.”

     None of us like disagreements, opposition, and divisions, especially in our families.  However, to be faithful to God, and to help people to see the truth of Jesus’ teaching, we have to face opposition with courage, still treating people with respect and love, even when we need to stand up to them when we disagree with them.  Here are 3 steps to do this:

  1. “Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, the leader and perfecter of faith.”  He gives us strength to endure our crosses like He did.  Talk with Jesus daily about difficult situations.
  2. “Surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses”:  Read about the courage of the people in the bible, and stories of the saints, to be inspired.  Look to people today who are strong witnesses to Jesus in their dedication to Jesus and the Church.  Be inspired by the examples of dedicated followers of Jesus.  Inspiration gives courage!
  3. “Rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us”:  Get to confession to receive forgiveness, guidance and strength.  Don’t keep carrying those burdens and sins.
  4. “Persevere in running the race that lies before us”:  Great people are those who do not give up.  Keep loving and praying for family members who are away from the Church.  Treat them with respect and love, but still be a witness of your faith to them.  I have seen many hearts change (sometimes it takes years) when someone is a persevering witness.  Don’t act like you are perfect.  Admit when you overreact; ask forgiveness.  But still tell people about the ways that Jesus and your faith helps you.

Jesus wants to “set the earth on fire.”  Trust in Jesus and the fire of the Holy Spirit.

   Mensaje de Padre Bob

ENFRENTAR LA OPOSICIÓN Y LA DIVISIÓN EN NUESTRAS VIDAS:

Podemos soportar la oposición sin cansarnos ni desanimarnos; tal como lo hizo Jesús. En las lecturas de hoy, el profeta Jeremías es arrojado a una cisterna (un pozo) porque a los líderes no les gustan sus mensajes de Dios. Jesús dice que a algunas personas en nuestras familias no les gustará que seamos cristianos católicos dedicados. Él dice que a veces las familias se dividen debido a sus desacuerdos sobre seguir a Jesús y vivir la fe católica. En nuestra segunda lectura dice: “Considera cómo soportó Jesús tal oposición, para que no te canses ni te desanimes”.

     A ninguno de nosotros nos gustan los desacuerdos, la oposición y las divisiones, especialmente en nuestras familias. Sin embargo, para ser fieles a Dios y ayudar a las personas a ver la verdad de las enseñanzas de Jesús, tenemos que enfrentar la oposición con valentía, y seguir tratando a las personas con respeto y amor, incluso cuando tenemos que hacerles frente cuando no estamos de acuerdo con a ellos. Aquí hay 3 pasos para hacer esto:

1) “Mantén tus ojos fijos en Jesús, el líder y consumador de la fe”. Él nos da fuerza para soportar nuestras cruces como lo hizo Él. Habla con Jesús diariamente sobre situaciones difíciles.

2) “Rodeados de una gran nube de testigos”: lea sobre la valentía de las personas en la Biblia y las historias de los santos, para inspirarse. Mire a las personas de hoy que son fuertes testigos de Jesús en su dedicación a Jesús y la Iglesia. Inspírate con los ejemplos de seguidores dedicados de Jesús. ¡La inspiración da valor!

3) “Deshacernos de toda carga y pecado que se aferra a nosotros”: Llegar a la confesión para recibir perdón, guía y fortaleza. No sigas cargando con esas cargas y pecados.

4) “Perseverar en correr la carrera que tenemos por delante”: Las grandes personas son aquellas que no se dan por vencidas. Sigan amando y orando por los familiares que están lejos de la Iglesia. Trátelos con respeto y amor, pero siga siendo un testigo de su fe para ellos. He visto cambiar muchos corazones (a veces lleva años) cuando alguien es un testigo perseverante. No actúes como si fueras perfecto. Admite cuando reaccionas de forma exagerada; pedir perdón. Pero aún cuéntale a la gente sobre las formas en que Jesús y tu fe te ayudan.

Jesús quiere “prender fuego a la tierra”. Confía en Jesús y en el fuego del Espíritu Santo.
