First Sunday of Advent Jer 33:14-16; Ps 25; 1 Thes 3:124:2; Lk 21:25-28, 34-36

Today, the first Sunday of Advent, the Church begins a new Liturgical Year, a new journey of faith that on the one hand commemorates the event of Jesus Christ and, on the other, opens to its ultimate fulfillment. It is precisely in this double perspective that she lives the Season of Advent, looking both to the first coming of the Son of God, when he was born of the Virgin Mary, and to his glorious return, when he will come to judge the living and the dead, as we say in the Creed. I would now like to focus briefly on this evocative theme of waiting, for it touches upon a profoundly human aspect in which the faith becomes, so to speak, completely one with our flesh and our heart. Every one of us, therefore, especially in this Season which prepares us for Christmas, can ask himself: What am I waiting for? What, at this moment of my life, does my heart long for? Expectation or waiting is a dimension that flows through our whole personal, family and social existence. Expectation is present in thousands of situations, from the smallest and most banal to the most important that involve us completely and in our depths. In the time before Jesus birth the expectation of the Messiah was very strong in Israel that is, the expectation of an Anointed one, a descendent of King David, who would at last set the people free from every form of moral and political slavery and find the Kingdom of God. But no one would ever have imagined that the Messiah could be born of a humble girl like Mary, the betrothed of a righteous man, Joseph. There is a mysterious correspondence between the waiting of God and that of Mary, the creature full of grace, totally transparent to the loving plan of the Most High. Let us learn from her, the Woman of Advent, how to live our daily actions with a new spirit, with the feeling of profound expectation that only the coming of God can fulfill.

2 de diciembre de 2012 Primer Domingo de Adviento Good Shepherd Catholic Church and School

Primer Domingo de Adviento Jer 33:14-16; Sal 25; 1 Tes 3:124:2; Lc 21:25-28, 34-36

Hoy, primer domingo de Adviento, la Iglesia inicia un nuevo Ao litrgico, un nuevo camino de fe que, por una parte, conmemora el acontecimiento de Jesucristo, y por otra, se abre a su cumplimiento final. Precisamente de esta doble perspectiva vive el tiempo de Adviento, mirando tanto a la primera venida del Hijo de Dios, cuando naci de la Virgen Mara, como a su vuelta gloriosa, cuando vendr a juzgar a vivos y muertos, como decimos en el Credo. Sobre este sugestivo tema de la espera quiero detenerme ahora brevemente, porque se trata de un aspecto profundamente humano, en el que la fe se convierte, por decirlo as, en un todo con nuestra carne y nuestro corazn.

La espera, el esperar, es una dimensin que atraviesa toda nuestra existencia personal, familiar y social. La espera est presente en mil situaciones, desde las ms pequeas y banales hasta las ms importantes, que nos implican totalmente y en lo profundo.

Cada uno de nosotros, por tanto, especialmente en este tiempo que nos prepara a la Navidad, puede preguntarse: yo qu espero? [] En el tiempo anterior al nacimiento de Jess, era muy fuerte en Israel la espera del Mesas, es decir, de un Consagrado, descendiente del rey David, que finalmente liberara al pueblo de toda esclavitud moral y poltica e instaurara el reino de Dios. Pero nadie habra imaginado nunca que el Mesas pudiese nacer de una joven humilde como era Mara, prometida del justo Jos. Hay una misteriosa correspondencia entre la espera de Dios y la de Mara, la criatura llena de gracia, totalmente transparente al designio de amor del Altsimo. Aprendamos de ella, Mujer del Adviento, a vivir los gestos cotidianos con un espritu nuevo, con el sentimiento de una espera profunda, que slo la venida de Dios puede colmar.

S.S. Benedicto XVI

Pensamiento de Mayordoma de la Semana

Tengan cuidado, Jess advierte en el Evangelio de hoy, no sea que sus espritus se hinchen de complacencias. Hagamos caso de su advertencia y sigamos el consejo de San Pablo, conducindonos de un modo que complazca a Dios, rebosando de amor los unos por los otros.
