Riflessione del mese di gennaio
LO SCORPIONE
Un monaco si era seduto a meditare sulla riva di un
ruscello. Quando aprì gli occhi, vide uno scorpione
che era caduto nell'acqua e lottava disperatamente
per stare a galla e sopravvivere.
OGGI, DOMENICA, 19 GENNAIO 2014 G.I.S.A.
GRUPPO ITALIANO SAN ATANASIO – terra’ la
riunione generale mensile alle 4:30pm nella sala riunione
della scuola. Come sempre sara’ servito caffe’ e
rinfreschi. Venite numerosi. Freddy Felleti 718- 614 –
9683.
Pieno di compassione, il monaco immerse la mano
nell'acqua, afferrò lo scorpione e lo posò in salvo sulla
riva.
L'insetto per ricompensa si rivoltò di scatto e lo punse
provocandogli un forte dolore.
SPETTACOLO TEATRALE - BROADWAY SHOW - Da
ricordare la data di mercoledì, 5 febbraio–spettacolo
teatrale – NEWSIESalle 7:30pm - $155 a persona.
Cena prima dello spettacolo al ristorante “La Sorrentina”.
L’autobus parte da Sant’Atanasio. Per prenotazioni
Diacono Dante al 917-602-3793.
Il monaco tornò a meditare, ma quando riaprì gli occhi,
vide che lo scorpione era di nuovo caduto in acqua e
si dibatteva con tutte le sue forze. Per la seconda volta
lo salvò e anche questa volta lo scorpione punse il suo
salvatore fino a farlo urlare per il dolore.
La stessa cosa accadde una terza volta. E il monaco
aveva le lacrime agli occhi per il tormento provocato
dalle crudeli punture alla mano. Un contadino che
aveva assistito alla scena esclamò: «Perché ti ostini
ad aiutare quella miserabile creatura che invece di
ringraziarti ti fa solo male?».
«Perché seguiamo entrambi la nostra natura» rispose
il monaco. «Lo scorpione è fatto per pungere e io sono
fatto per essere misericordioso».
E tu, per che cosa sei fatto?

II Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
Cuando San Juan Bautista vio que Jesús venía hacia El, lo llamo el cordero de Dios. Que quiso decir
Juan con estas palabras? Mas tarde, San Pablo explica mas detalladamente el tema del Sacrificio
del Cordero, enseñando que todos son justificados gratuitamente por su gracia, en virtud de la
redención llevada a cabo por medio de Jesucristo. Gracias al cordero sacrificado Dios perdona los
pecados del mundo.
Que autentica fue la confesión de San Pablo al exclamar: Cristo nuestro cordero pascual ha sido
inmolado.
Leyendo el Evangelio segun San Juan, El Espiritu Santo nos da un visión clara de Jesús y un
conocimiento de su misión. Hemos hecho el habito de leer la palabra de Dios? Si te limitas a
escuchar las lecturas del dia Domingo en la Santa Misa posiblemente no estes recibiendo toda la
riqueza que encierra la palabra de Dios, para lo cual hay que leerla, meditarla, reflexionarla para
apreciar su significado y como lo podemos aplicar a nuestra vida diaria. Hay que hacer esto con
mucha oración y fe, sin cuestionar lo inexplicable pues poco a poco entenderas todo en la medida
