El quincuagésimo aniversario del
Concilio Va cano II
Queridos hermanos y hermanas en Cristo:
Este es el segundo de seis breves ar culos para
conmemorar el 50 aniversario de la inauguración
del Concilio Va cano II. El primer ar culo intentó
explicar la finalidad pastoral que tuvo el Papa Juan
XXIII al convocar al Concilio. Él deseaba unir un
mundo en guerra consigo mismo, mediante el uso
de la unidad de la Iglesia como un catalizador para
traer al diálogo a todos los pueblos. Este Segundo
ar culo se ocupa del primer documento aprobado
por el Papa y los Obispos en el Concilio: La
Cons tución sobre la Sagrada Liturgia.
El acto central de la adoración de la Iglesia, la
celebración de la Misa o la Eucaris a, se inició en el
Calvario, cuando Jesús, como sacerdote, se ofreció a
sí mismo como víc ma por nuestros pecados en el
altar de su cruz. Ese sacrificio histórico de Cristo se
hace presente, de modo sacramental, cada vez que
se ofrece la Misa. Adoramos a Dios al par cipar en
la ofrenda de la Misa y unir nuestro propio sacrificio
al del Señor.
El Concilio quería fomentar una mayor
par cipación, tanto de manera interior en el
espíritu, como de manera exterior en las acciones,
en la celebración de la Misa. El Concilio hizo un
llamado para preservar aquellos elementos del rito
que nos llegan desde los empos apostólicos, pero
adaptándolos para que el lenguaje y las acciones de
la Misa resultaran más accesibles, de manera que
todos los bau zados pudieran par cipar en ellos. El
obje vo de la reforma litúrgica fue hacer que la
misa, en cierto sen do, hablara por sí misma.
La reforma de los ritos litúrgicos hizo un especial
hincapié en las Escrituras. Hizo un llamado para
considerar apropiada la música litúrgica en las
lenguas vernáculas. Indicó como mandatorio la
predicación homilé ca como parte integrante del
rito mismo. Dejó en claro la conexión que existe
entre la adoración de Dios y la acción por la jus cia,
la paz y la caridad en el mundo que él creó y que su
Hijo murió para salvar.
Aún cuando la Eucaris a es la cumbre de la
adoración de Dios por parte de la Iglesia, el Concilio
animó la devoción popular a la San sima Virgen
Page Two
María, al reservado Sacramento del altar, a los
santos en el calendario litúrgico y a la par cipación
popular en la celebración de la Liturgia de las Horas.
El obje vo de una par cipación más profunda y
más autén ca en la liturgia es inculcar en todos los
creyentes un sen do del empo centrado en los
misterios de la vida, muerte y resurrección de
Cristo. Este empo litúrgico nos man ene viviendo
en el Reino de Dios, incluso mientras trabajamos
para obtener nuestra salvación en los ritmos
temporales de este mundo. La Misa une la brecha
entre la erra y el cielo; es el Banquete bíblico del
En ocasiones los católicos más jóvenes
preguntarán qué pueden obtener de asis r a una
misa que quizá no en endan bien y que en
ocasiones no les interese. ¿Qué es lo que ellos (y
todos los demás) ob enen? Lo que ob enen es la
vida eterna prome da por el Señor a aquellos que
“comen su carne y beben su sangre”, tomando en
nuestros cuerpos aún mortales las semillas de la
inmortalidad en el cuerpo resucitado de Cristo. Eso
no es algo que uno “consigue” en ningún otro lugar:
la vida eterna.
Cardenal Francis George, O.M.I.
Arzobispo de Chicago
Reflexionemos sobre la Palabra de Dios
El relato de Mateo no es tanto una historia de
aventureros, sino más bien la de un Dios, que atrae a
las personas hacia el misterio de la divinidad por
medio del nacimiento de Jesús. Una estrella que guía
y una explicación con palabras sabias son las cosas
que conducen a los magos hacia su des no. Las
señales naturales y las palabras que se nos van
revelando son las cosas que u liza Dios en nuestros
días para llevarnos a la presencia de Jesús, el Hijo de
La historia de los reyes magos gira alrededor del
nacimiento de Jesús y enen un mensaje para los
que buscan a Dios en el mundo de hoy. Dios no
atrae a nadie a la fuerza. Los ángeles dan un
mensaje de gozo, que es para todos; pero no
ordenan insistentemente que los pastores viajen
durante la noche para adorar al niño. Una estrella
aparece en el firmamento, pero nadie fuerza a estos
astrólogos a empacar algunos regalos y emprender
Epiphany of the Lord

su camino hacia erras desconocidas para postrarse
ante Jesús y adorarlo.
El mensaje central de esta historia es lo que se
anuncia en la carta a los efesios: El plan de Dios es
que todas las personas estén incluidas en el misterio
de la salvación y que, junto a la descendencia de
Abraham, “todos los pueblos comparten la misma
herencia, son miembros de un mismo cuerpo y
par cipan de la misma promesa en Cristo
Jesús” (Efesios 3:6). Dios quiere que todos
par cipen en la vida divina —¡todos! Piénsalo bien.

Vivamos la Palabra de Dios
Podemos orar para que las divisiones y los odios se resuelvan
por medio del don de la sabiduría
que nos ha dado Dios. Podemos
orar para que aumente el número de mujeres y hombres con sabiduría, que presten atención a
los signos que Dios envía para que junten esfuerzos
con el fin de alabar a Dios y conseguir la paz. El desno final de todas las personas es llegar ante la presencia de Dios.

The Fi ieth Anniversary of the Second Va can Council
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
This is the second of six short ar cles to mark the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Va can
Council. The first ar cle explained Pope John XXIII’s pastoral purpose in calling the Council. He desired to
unite a world at war with itself by using the unity of the Church as a catalyst to bring all peoples together in
dialogue. This second ar cle takes up the first document approved by the Pope and Bishops in Council: the
Cons tu on on the Sacred Liturgy.
The central act of the Church’s worship, the celebra on of the Mass or the Eucharist, began on Calvary,
when Jesus, as priest, offered his very self as vic m for our sins on the altar of his cross. Christ’s historical self
-sacrifice is made sacramentally present each me the Mass is offered. We worship God by par cipa ng in
the offering of the Mass and joining our self-sacrifice to that of the Lord.
The Council wanted to foster greater participation, both interiorly in spirit and exteriorly in actions, in the
celebration of the Mass. The Council called for preserving the elements of the rite that come to us from apostolic
times but adapting them so that the language and the actions of the Mass would make it easier for all the baptized
to take part in them. The goal of liturgical reform was to have the Mass, in a sense, speak for itself.
The reform of the liturgical rites placed par cular emphasis on Scripture. It called for liturgical music in
vernacular languages, as appropriate. It mandated homile c preaching as integral to the rite itself. It made
clear the connec on between worship of God and ac on for jus ce and peace and charity in the world he
created and his Son died to save.
While the Eucharist is the summit of the Church’s worship of God, the Council encouraged popular
devo ons to the Blessed Virgin Mary, to the reserved Sacrament of the Altar, to the saints in the liturgical
calendar, and popular par cipa on in the celebra on of the Liturgy of the Hours.
The goal of deeper and more authen c par cipa on in the liturgy is to imbue all believers with a sense of
me centered on the mysteries of Christ’s life, death and resurrec on. Liturgical me keeps us living in the
Kingdom of God, even as we work out our salva on in this world’s temporal rhythms. The Mass bridges the
gap between earth and heaven; it is the biblical Banquet of the Lamb.
Some mes younger Catholics will ask what they get out of coming to a Mass they might not understand
well and are some mes not interested in. What do they (and everyone else) get? They get the eternal life
promised by the Lord to those who “eat his flesh and drink his blood,” taking into our s ll mortal bodies the
seeds of immortality in Christ’s risen body. That’s not something one “gets” anywhere else: eternal life.

Reflec ng on God’s Word
Ma hew’s tale is less a story of adventurous seekers than of a luring God, drawing others into the
mystery of divinity through the birth of Jesus. A star that guides and wise words that explain are what help
lead the magi to their des na on. Natural signs and words of revela on are what God works through in our
own day to bring us into the presence of Jesus, the Son of God.
The story of the wise men is a journey that surrounds the birth of Jesus. It speaks to all seeking God in
today’s world. God does not use force to a ract others. Angels speak a message of joy for all but give no
orders that insist that the shepherds journey through the dark of night to worship. A star appears in the sky
but no one forces these astrologers to pack up some gi s and make their way across foreign terrain to kneel
and prostrate themselves and do Jesus homage.
At the heart of this story is the message announced in the le er to the Ephesians: God’s plan was that
everyone be included in the mystery of salva on, that, along with the children of Abraham, “the Gen les are
coheirs, members of the same body, and copartners in the promise in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 3:6). God
wants everyone to share in divine life—everyone! Give it your though ul considera on.
