Lent

Veni, Sancte Spiritus
Pido al Espíritu Santo que les libere de toda impureza - de
cuerpo, alma, mente, voluntad y corazón - para que cada de
ustedes sea el tabernáculo viviente y sea así un portador del
amor y de la compasión de Dios.

«Al crecer la maldad, se enfriará el amor en la mayoría» (Mt 24,12)
Querría que mi voz traspasara las fronteras de la Iglesia Católica, para que llegara a todos ustedes,
hombres y mujeres de buena voluntad,
dispuestos a escuchar a Dios. Si se sienten afligidos como nosotros, porque en el mundo se extiende la iniquidad,
si les preocupa la frialdad que paraliza el corazón y las obras, si ven que se debilita el sentido de una misma humanidad,
únanse a nosotros para invocar juntos a Dios, para ayunar juntos y entregar juntos lo que podamos como ayuda para nuestros hermanos.

Invito especialmente a los miembros de la Iglesia a emprender con celo el camino de la Cuaresma, sostenidos por la limosna,
el ayuno y la oración. Si en muchos corazones a veces da la impresión de que la caridad se ha apagado, en el corazón de Dios no se apaga.
Él siempre nos da una nueva oportunidad para que podamos empezar a amar de nuevo.:
. - >>>> Pope Francisco

Today we begin the liturgical period of Lent with the emblematic ritual of the
imposition of the ashes by which we intend to take on the task of turning our
hearts towards the horizons of Grace ... This is not some superficial or transitory
conversion, but a spiritual itinerary which has a profound effect on our
conscience and involves a sincere intention to amend our lives". ... This means
undertaking an authentic conversion to God - returning to Him - recognising His
sanctity, His power, His majesty...Such conversion is possible because God is
rich in mercy and great in love. His mercy is regenerating. ... God, in fact, does not
want the death of sinners but their conversion to life. ... He offers us His
forgiveness, ... so as to give us a new heart purified from the evil that oppresses
it, so as to lead us to participate in His joy. Our world needs to be converted
by God, it needs His pardon, His love, it needs a new heart".
-Pope Benedict XVI

On this First Sunday of Lent, the Gospel of St Mark speaks of Jesus being led into
the desert by the Holy Spirit, tempted by Satan and assisted by the angels. Let us
pray that our Lenten journey will strengthen us in the struggle against all forms of
temptation.  Let us invoke them frequently, so that they may sustain us in our
commitment to follow Jesus to the point of identifying with him P. Benedict VXI >>>

The Transfiguration of Jesus was essentially an experience of prayer (cf. Lk 9:
28-29). Indeed, prayer reaches its culmination and thus becomes a source of
inner light when the spirit of the human being adheres to that of God and their
respective wills merge, as it were, to become a whole .I urge you to find in
this Lenten Season  prolonged moments of silence, possibly in retreat, in order
to review your own lives in the light of the loving plan of the heavenly Father.
Let yourselves be guided in this more intense listening to God by the Virgin Mary,
a teacher and model of prayer.  To listen to Christ, like Mary.
To listen to him in the word, preserved in Sacred Scripture.
To listen to him in the very events of our lives, trying to read in them the
messages of providence. To listen to him, finally, in our brothers,
especially in the little ones and the poor, for whom Jesus himself asked our
concrete love. To listen to Christ and to obey his voice.
This is the only way that leads to joy and love."

Even in the thick darkness of Christ's Passion, she did not lose the light of her
divine Son but rather treasured it in her heart.
P. Benedict VXI

III Semana de Cuaresma>>>

3rd Week of Lent click here>>>
Watch the Meditation as a flash movie>>> 

Third Sunday of Lent In the Gospel for this Third Sunday of Lent,
St John tells us that, when Jesus found merchants and money-changers in the
temple of Jerusalem, he made a whip of cords and drove them out with angry
words: “Take these things away; you shall not make my Father’s house a house
of trade” (Jn 2:16). The Lord’s “severe” attitude might seem in contrast to the
customary gentleness with which he approaches sinners, heals the sick and
welcomes the little and the weak. To look closely, however, gentleness and
severity are expressions of the same love which can be tender or demanding
according to need. Genuine love is always accompanied by the truth. ....The
Gospel passage also has a more specific meaning, which refers to the mystery
of Christ and announces the joy of Easter. Replying to those who asked him to
confirm his prophecy with a sign, Jesus poses a sort of challenge: “Destroy this
temple, and in three days I will raise it up” (Jn 2:19). The same Evangelist notes
that he was speaking of his body, alluding to his future Resurrection. Christ’s
humanity is thus presented as the true “temple”, the living house of God. It would
be “destroyed” on Golgotha, but immediately “rebuilt” in glory, to be the spiritual
dwelling place of all who accept the Gospel message and let themselves be
formed by the Spirit of God. 3. May the Blessed Virgin help us to accept her divine
Son’s words. Mary’s mission is precisely to lead us to him, repeating to us the
invitation she gave the servants in Cana: “Do whatever he tells you” (Jn 2:5).
Let us listen to her motherly voice! Mary knows well that the demands
of the Gospel, even when weighty and severe, are the secret of true freedom
and of our authentic joy.- Blessed John Paul II
 P. Benedict VXI

“God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him
should not perish, but have eternal life” (Jn 3:16). These words fill us with joy and
hope, as we await the fulfillment of God’s promises! ... the word of God is a word
of unbounded hope. “God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son … so
that through him, the world might be saved” (Jn 3:16-17).
God does not give up on us! He continues to lift our eyes to a future of hope,
and he promises us the strength to accomplish it. As Saint Paul tells us in today’s
second reading, God created us in Christ Jesus “to live the good life”, a life of
good deeds, in accordance with his will (cf. Eph 2:10). He gave us his
commandments, not as a burden, but as a source of freedom: the freedom to
become men and women of wisdom, teachers of justice and peace, people who
believe in others and seek their authentic good. God created us to live in the light,
and to be light for the world around us! This is what Jesus tells us in today’s
Gospel: “The man who lives by the truth comes out into the light, so that it may
be plainly seen that what he does is done in God” (Jn 3:21). “Live”, then, “by the
truth!” Radiate the light of faith, hope and love in your families and communities!
Be witnesses of the holy truth that sets men and women free! …

Fifth Sunday, "Sir", they said to him, " we wish to see Jesus". Philip in turn
went to Andrew, one of the first Apostles very close to the Lord and who also had
a Greek name, and they both went and "told Jesus" (cf. Jn 12: 20-21). In the
request of these anonymous Greeks we can interpret the thirst to see and to
know Christ which is in every person's heart; and Jesus' answer orients us to
the mystery of Easter, the glorious manifestation of his saving mission. "The hour
has come", he declared, "for the Son of man to be glorified (Jn 12: 23). Yes! The
hour of the glorification of the Son of man is at hand, but it will entail the
sorrowful passage through his Passion and death on the Cross. Indeed the divine
plan of salvation which is for everyone, Jews and Gentiles alike will only be
brought about in this manner. Actually, everyone is invited to be a member of the
one people of the new and definitive Covenant. In this light, we also understand
the solemn proclamation with which the Gospel passage ends: "and I, when I am
lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself" (Jn 12: 32), and likewise the
Evangelist's comment: "He said this to show by what death he was to die"
(Jn 12: 33). The Cross: the height loftiness of love is the loftiness of Jesus and he
attracts all to these heights. Very appropriately, the liturgy brings us to meditate
on this text of John's Gospel today, on this
Fifth Sunday of Lent, while the days of
the Lord's Passion draw near in which we will immerse ourselves spiritually as
from next Sunday which is called, precisely, Palm Sunday and the Sunday of the
Lord's Passion. It is as if the Church were encouraging us to share Jesus' state
of mind, desiring to prepare us to relive the mystery of his Crucifixion, death and
Resurrection not as foreign spectators but on the contrary as protagonists,
involved together with him in his mystery of the Cross and the Resurrection
.

Semana Santa

Domingo de Ramos y de la Pasión del Señor, Jueves Santo , Viernes Santo Sábado Santo

HOLY WEEK

PalmSunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday Holy Saturday

The Lenten journey finds its fulfillment in the Paschal Triduum,
especially in the Great Vigil of the Holy Night: renewing our baptismal promises,
we reaffirm that Christ is the Lord of our life, that life which God bestowed upon us
when we were reborn of “water and Holy Spirit”, and we profess again our firm
commitment to respond to the action of the Grace in order to be his disciples.
P. Benedict VXI

Palm Sunday ...if we want to encounter Jesus and then to walk with him on his
path, we must ask: on what path does he want to lead us? What do we expect of
him? What does he expect of us? To understand what happens on Palm Sunday
and to know what this means, not only for that hour but for all time, one detail has
proved to be important; it also became the key to understanding the event for his
disciples too, when they looked back after Easter with new eyes at those
tumultuous days. Jesus entered the Holy City riding on a donkey, that is, the
animal of the simple, common country people, and moreover, it was an ass that
did not belong to him but one he had asked to borrow for the occasion. He did not
arrive in an ostentatious royal carriage or on horseback like the great figures of
the world, but on a borrowed donkey. John tells us that at first the disciples did
not understand his action. Only after Easter did they realize that Jesus, by so
acting, was fulfilling what the prophets had foretold: that his action derived from
God's Word and was bringing it to fulfilment.
P. Benedict VXI

Holy Thursday: click here>>>
Watch the Meditation as a flash movie click here>>>

Qui, pridie quam pro nostra omniumque salute pateretur, hoc est hodie, accepit
panem
: hese words we shall pray today in the Canon of the Mass. “Hoc est
hodie”
–the Liturgy of Holy Thursday places the word “today” into the text of the
prayer, thereby emphasizing the particular dignity of this day. It was “today” that
He did this: he gave himself to us for ever in the Sacrament of his Body and Blood
. This “today” is first and foremost the memorial of that first Paschal event.
Yet it is something more. With the Canon, we enter into this “today”. Our today
comes into contact with his today. He does this now. With the word “today”, the
Church’s Liturgy wants us to give great inner attention to the mystery of this day,
to the words in which it is expressed.
We therefore seek to listen in a new way
to the institution narrative, in the form in which the Church has formulated it, on
the basis of Scripture and in contemplation of the Lord himself. . ...In the Upper
Room, Christ gives his Body and Blood to the disciples
, that is, he gives himself
in the totality of his person. But can he do so? He is still physically present in
their midst, he is standing in front of them! The answer is: at that hour, Jesus
fulfils what he had previously proclaimed in the Good Shepherd discourse:
“No one takes my life from me: I lay it down of my own accord. I have power to
lay it down and I have power to take it again …” (Jn 10:18). No one can take his
life from him: he lays it down by his own free decision. At that hour, he anticipates
the crucifixion and resurrection. What is later to be fulfilled, as it were, physically
in him, he already accomplishes in anticipation, in the freedom of his love.
He gives his life and he takes it again in the resurrection, so as to be able to
share it for ever. Lord, today you give us your life, you give us yourself.
Enter deeply within us with your love. Make us live in your “today”.
Make us instruments of your peace!  P. Benedict VXI

 

 

In Christ, God revealed himself as Love (cf. 1Jn 4: 7-10).
The Cross of Christ, the “word of the Cross”, manifests God’s saving power
(cf. 1Cor 1: 18), that is given to raise men and women anew and bring them
salvation: it is love in its most extreme form
(cf. Encyclical Deus caritas est, n. 12).  P. Benedict VXI

Today starts the Novenafor the feast of Divine Mercy !!!: click here>>>

In Christ, God revealed himself as Love (cf. 1Jn 4: 7-10).
The Cross of Christ, the “word of the Cross”, manifests God’s saving power
(cf. 1Cor 1: 18), that is given to raise men and women anew and bring them
salvation: it is love in its most extreme form
(cf. Encyclical Deus caritas est, n. 12).

When we touch the Cross, or rather, when we carry it, we touch the mystery
of God, the mystery of Jesus Christ. The mystery that God so loved the world – us
– that he gave his only-begotten Son for us (cf. Jn 3:16). We touch the marvelous
mystery of God’s love, the only genuinely redemptive truth. But we also touch the
fundamental law, the constitutive norm of our lives, namely the fact that without
this “yes” to the Cross, without walking in communion with Christ day by day,
life cannot succeed. The more we can make some sacrifice, out of love for the
great truth and the great love, out of love for the truth and for God’s love, the
greater and richer life becomes. Anyone who wants to keep his life for himself
loses it. Anyone who gives his life – day by day in small acts, which form part of
the great decision – that person finds it. This is the challenging, but also
profoundly beautiful and liberating truth that we wish to enter into, step by
step… May the Lord bless this journey. Amen.

P. Benedict VXI

Sábado Santo>>>

Holy Saturday: click here>>>

"The Mystery of Holy Saturday". . .Holy Saturday is the day when God remains
hidden... Holy Saturday: this day's darkness challenges all who are wondering
about life and it challenges us believers in particular. We too have something
to do with this darkness ... Holy Saturday is a "no man's land" between the death
and the Resurrection, but this "no man's land" was entered by One,
the Only One, who passed through it with the signs of his Passion for man's
sake: Passio Christi. Passio hominis. ... God, in Jesus Christ, not only shared
our dying but also our remaining in death the most radical solidarity. ...
Jesus Christ "descended into hell" What do these words mean? They mean that
God, having made himself man, reached the point of entering man's most
extreme and absolute solitude, where not a ray of love enters, where total
abandonment reigns without any word of comfort: "hell". Jesus Christ, by
remaining in death, passed beyond the door of this ultimate solitude to lead us
too to cross it with him. We have all, at some point, felt the frightening sensation
of abandonment, and that is what we fear most about death, just as when we
were children we were afraid to be alone in the dark and could only be reassured
by the presence of a person who loved us. Well, this is exactly what happened
on Holy Saturday: the voice of God resounded in the realm of death.
The unimaginable occurred: namely, Love penetrated "hell". Even in the extreme
darkness of the most absolute human loneliness we may hear a voice that calls
us and find a hand that takes ours and leads us out. Human beings live because
they are loved and can love; and if love even penetrated the realm of death, then
life also even reached there. In the hour of supreme solitude we shall never be
alone: Passio Christi. Passio hominis. This is the mystery of Holy Saturday!
Truly from there, from the darkness of the death of the Son of God,
the light of a new hope gleamed: the light of the Resurrection...

P. Benedict VXI
