A Message from Father Bob

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE HUMBLE?  IT TAKES STRENGTH TO BE HUMBLE, AND HUMILITY GIVES YOU STRENGTH.

- First Reading: “seek humility…a people humble and lowly, who shall take refuge in the Lord.”  You humbly place your trust in God and seek his help in your life.  God gives you strength.

- Second reading: “God chose the foolish of the world to shame the wise; the weak to shame the strong; the lowly and despised, who count for nothing, to reduce to nothing those who are something, so that no human being may boast before God…Whoever boasts should boast in the Lord.”  Our humble trust in God gives us strength and dignity even if we are not the most powerful, rich, successful, or smartest persons.

- In the Gospel Jesus says that the really strong people are those who humbly trust in God:

Blessed are the “poor in spirit,” who humbly trust in God, not just in themselves.

Blessed are “they who mourn.”  They have humble compassion for what others go through.

Blessed are “the meek.”  They are humbly gentle with others and meet them where they are at.

Blessed are “the merciful.”  They are humble enough to forgive others and be merciful.

Blessed are “the clean of heart.”  They are humble enough to recognize their own faults and weaknesses, and want to get better.

Blessed are “the peacemakers.”  They don’t seek to get back at people, but humbly seek to help people to work through disagreements, and make peace with each other.

Blessed are you who are “persecuted and insulted” for humbly seeking to do what is right, and are willing to stand up for Jesus and your faith.  “Rejoice and be glad because your reward will be great in heaven.”

***Jesus humbled himself to become a human being and to die on the cross.  When we unite ourselves humbly with Jesus in our lives, we become truly blessed, and share in Jesus’ strength.

 Mensaje de Padre Bob

¿QUÉ SIGNIFICA SER HUMILDE?  SE NECESITA FUERZA PARA SER HUMILDE, Y LA HUMILDAD TE DA FUERZA.

- Primera lectura: "buscad la humildad... un pueblo humilde y bajo, que se refugiará en el Señor".  Humildemente pones tu confianza en Dios y buscas su ayuda en tu vida.  Dios te da fuerza.

- Segunda lectura: "Dios escogió a los imprudentes del mundo para avergonzar a los sabios; los débiles para avergonzar a los fuertes; los humildes y despreciados, que no cuentan para nada, para reducir a la nada a los que son algo, para que ningún ser humano se gloríe ante Dios... El que se gloríe, que se gloríe en el Señor".  Nuestra humilde confianza en Dios nos da fuerza y dignidad, incluso si no somos las personas más poderosas, ricas, exitosas o inteligentes.

-En el Evangelio Jesús dice que las personas realmente fuertes son aquellas que humildemente confían en Dios:

Bienaventurados los "pobres de espíritu", que humildemente confían en Dios, no sólo en sí mismos.

Bienaventurados "los que lloran".  Tienen humilde compasión por lo que otros pasan.

Bienaventurados "los mansos".  Son humildemente amables con los demás y se encuentran con ellos donde están.

Bienaventurados "los misericordiosos".  Son lo suficientemente humildes como para perdonar a los demás y ser misericordiosos. Bienaventurados son "los limpios de corazón".  Son lo suficientemente humildes como para reconocer sus propias fallas y debilidades, y quieren mejorar.

Bienaventurados "los pacificadores".  No buscan vengarse de las personas, sino que humildemente buscan ayudar a las personas a resolver los desacuerdos y hacer las paces entre sí.

Bienaventurados los que son "perseguidos e insultados" por buscar humildemente hacer lo correcto, y están dispuestos a defender a Jesús y su fe.  "Regocíjate y alégrate porque tu recompensa será grande en el cielo".

***Jesús se humilló a sí mismo para convertirse en un ser humano y morir en la cruz.  Cuando nos unimos humildemente con Jesús en nuestras vidas, llegamos a ser verdaderamente bendecidos y compartimos la fuerza de Jesús.
