Please pray each day of this Holy Year
Pope Francis’ prayer for mercy.
Almighty God,
you reveal your love for us
in your Son, Jesus Christ,
who is the face of your mercy.
Pour out your mercy upon us
that we may bring to every person
your goodness and tenderness —
signs of your Kingdom,
present among us.
May we become merciful
like you, Father, are merciful.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Por favor, oren cada día de este
Año Santo la oración por la misericordia
de nuestra Papa Fransico.
O Dios todopoderoso
que revelas tu amor por nosotros
en tu Hijo Jesucristo,
el rostro de tu misericordia.
Derrama tu misericordia sobre nosotros
para que podamos Ilevar a cada persona
ta bandad y tu termurasignos de tu Reino
presente entre nosotros.
Qué seamos misericordiosos
como tú, Padre, eres misericordioso..
Por nuestro Señor Jesucristo, tu Hijo,
quien vive y reina contigo
en la unidad del Espiritu Santo,
Dios único.os siglos de los siglos. Amén
Sharing the Gospel
Mary had great faith in God. She also knew that God could do anything. So when the wedding
servers ran out of wine, she knew Jesus could help. She said, "Do whatever Jesus tells you to do."
That's the smartest thing any of us can do. Jesus honored his Mother by changing the water into
wine. When you obey God by honoring your mother's wishes, you turn ordinary things, like opening
a door, emptying trash, or making the bed into a gift Of love. This love makes your mother and
God smile.
Dear Jesus, help me to do everything you say. I know you can do anything.
Something to Draw
Draw a picture of the wedding servants listening carefully to Jesus.
Mission for the Week
What does Jesus tell you to do in his word, the Bible? Find out by reading the Bible
for 15 minutes a day with your family. You could start by reading Luke.
Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
Occasionally we hear someone speak about experiencing
a miracle. Usually it involves rescue from some accident
or health crisis. "It was a miracle that car didn't hit me,
the way they were driving" or "It was a miracle they were
able to save her leg, the way that it was smashed." We
even talk about "miracle" drugs, a reference to the amazing properties of life-saving antibiotics, antivirals, and
certain other compounds. Miracles have a character of
the unexplained to them. While scientists can describe in
great detail the action of "miracle" drugs, to the rest of
us they seem just amazing. Doctors can illuminate the
process by which someone is healed through surgery and
therapy, but again, it seems almost unbelievable when we
see the results. Engineers can detail why a collision never
happened, but to those who escape harm, it seems like a
miracle indeed! The miracle at the wedding feast at Cana
in Galilee is the third aspect of what comprises the manifestation of Christ known as the Epiphany mystery. (The
appearance of the Magi and the baptism at the Jordan
are the other two.) In his Gospel, John describes the action by Jesus at Cana as a "sign" that reveals his glory. It
is the revelation of his glory that causes the disciples to
believe in him. Jesus is made manifest, and so people
come to believe. It is what happened to the Magi; it is
what happened to the crowds gathered at the Jordan; it is
what happens to the disciples who are with him at the
wedding feast. The wonder of God's glory is not reserved to spectacular miracles that take place only at rare
intervals. It is a wonder that a drug can cure someone, or
that a surgeon can work so skillfully, or that for whatever
reason, accidents are avoided. Seeing the manifestation
of God's action each day is the sign of one who believes
that the Word is made flesh and dwells among us.
Holy Year of Mercy—The Words of Pope Francis
Jesus Christ is the face of the Father’s mercy. These
words might well sum up the mystery of the Christian
faith. Mercy has become living and visible in Jesus of
Nazareth, reaching its culmination in him. The Father,
“rich in mercy” (Eph 2:4), after having revealed his
name to Moses as “a God merciful and gracious, slow
to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness” (Ex 34:6), has never ceased to show, in various
ways throughout history, his divine nature. In the
“fullness of time” (Gal 4:4), when everything had
been arranged according to his plan of salvation, he
sent his only Son into the world, born of the Virgin
Mary, to reveal his love for us in a definitive way.
Whoever sees Jesus sees the Father (cf. Jn 14:9). Jesus
of Nazareth, by his words, his actions, and his entire
person reveals the mercy of God. We need constantly
to contemplate the mystery of mercy. It is a wellspring
of joy, serenity, and peace.
El Segundo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
"Esto Jesús hizo en Caná de Galilea fue la primera de sus
señales milagrosas. Así mostró su gloria y sus discípulos
creyeron en él" (Jn 2, 11). Así inició Jesús sus milagros
de manera desapercibida, quien recibe los halagos y felicitaciones es el novio, no Jesús. Porque su hora aún no ha
llegado. El agua a petición de su Madre se convierte en
vino, este gran milagro es para toda la humanidad no tan
solo para aquellos novios de su tiempo histórico. Ahora,
cada domingo, nosotros celebramos y participamos con
alegría de ese banquete eucarístico. Otro punto que
debemos de meditar en la lectura del Evangelio de hoy
es darnos cuenta de que sus discípulos creyeron en él.
¿Cuántos milagros tiene que hacer Jesús en nuestra vida
para que creamos en su palabra, en su promesa de vida
eterna? ¿Dónde entra su Madre diciendo haz lo que él te
diga? La sintonía entre Jesús y María lleva a los discípulos a ver, creer, comprender y lo más importante hacer
caso de lo que estaban viviendo. Signos y señales van
unidos entre sí para evitar que los milagros sean mágicos
o espectaculares. Dios actúa en el silencio, en lo discreto,
en lo sencillo. Su manifestación en este caso es para que
los novios no queden en vergüenza. Su vino de salvación
y felicidad no se comparan con el que se había terminado. Ahora es un vino nuevo. ¡Señor, ayúdanos ver la
abundancia de tus dones y de tu amor para que las señales de vida nueva que nos das nos ayuden a crecer en
la fe, la esperanza y el amor!
Sean misericordiosos,
como el Padre de ustedes es misericordioso.
El Año Santo de la Misericordia
Las Palabras de Papa Fransico
Jesucristo es el rostro de la misericordia del Padre. El
misterio de la fe cristiana parece encontrar su síntesis
en esta palabra. Ella se ha vuelto viva, visible y ha alcanzado su culmen en Jesús de Nazaret. El Padre, «
rico en misericordia » (Ef 2,4), después de haber revelado su nombre a Moisés como « Dios compasivo y
misericordioso, lento a la ira, y pródigo en amor y fidelidad » (Ex 34,6) no ha cesado de dar a conocer en
varios modos y en tantos momentos de la historia su
naturaleza divina. En la « plenitud del tiempo » (Gal
4,4), cuando todo estaba dispuesto según su plan de
salvación, Él envió a su Hijo nacido de la Virgen María para revelarnos de manera definitiva su amor.
Quien lo ve a Él ve al Padre (cfr Jn 14,9). Jesús de
Nazaret con su palabra, con sus gestos y con toda su
persona revela la misericordia de Dios. Siempre tenemos necesidad de contemplar el misterio de la misericordia. Es fuente de alegría, de serenidad y de paz.
