5 St. Joaquin-St. Juan, Beacon, NY Septiembre Domingo del tiempo Ordinario. LECTURAS PARA EL DIA DE HOY: 1 Lectura: Ez 33,7-9: Si no hablas al malvado, te pediré cuenta de su sangre. 2 Lectura Rom 13,8-10: La plenitud de la Ley es el amor. Evangelio Mt 18,15-20: Ve y corrígele; tú y él a solas. «Si tu hermano llega a pecar, vete y repréndele, a solas tú con él» Hoy, el Evangelio propone que consideremos algunas recomendaciones de Jesús a sus discípulos de entonces y de siempre. También en la comunidad de los primeros cristianos había faltas y comportamientos contrarios a la voluntad de Dios. El versículo final nos ofrece el marco para resolver los problemas que se presenten dentro de la Iglesia durante la historia: «Donde están dos o tres reunidos en mi nombre, allí estoy yo en medio de ellos». Jesús está presente en todos los períodos de la vida de su Iglesia, su Cuerpo místico animado por la acción incesante del Espíritu Santo. Somos siempre hermanos, tanto si la comunidad es grande como si es pequeña. «Si tu hermano llega a pecar, vete y repréndele, a solas tú con él. Si te escucha, habrás ganado a tu hermano». Qué bonita y leal es la relación de fraternidad que Jesús nos enseña! Ante una falta contra mí o hacia otro, he de pedir al Señor su gracia para perdonar, para comprender y, finalmente, para tratar de corregir a mi hermano. Hoy no es tan fácil como cuando la Iglesia era menos numerosa. Pero, si pensamos las cosas en diálogo con nuestro Padre Dios, Él nos iluminará para encontrar el tiempo, el lugar y las palabras oportunas para cumplir con nuestro deber de ayudar. Es importante purificar nuestro corazón. San Pablo nos anima a corregir al prójimo con intención recta: «Cuando alguno incurra en alguna falta, vosotros, los espirituales, corregidle con espíritu de mansedumbre, y cuídate de ti mismo, pues también tú puedes ser tentado». El afecto profundo y la humildad nos harán buscar la suavidad. «Obrad con mano maternal, con la delicadeza infinita de nuestras madres, mientras nos curaban las heridas grandes o pequeñas de nuestros juegos y tropiezos infantiles». Así nos corrige la Madre de Jesús y Madre nuestra, con inspiraciones para amar más a Dios y a los hermanos. ORACION: Dios, como Fuerza suprema de la Vida, que suscita el caos y promueve la convergencia de todo hacia nuevas formas de Ser y de Vida. Danos imitar tu magnanimidad y tu tolerancia, que todo lo hace concurrir finalmente al Bien. Danos espíritu de comprensión y libertad, para que sepamos siempre perdonar y rescatar para el bien a todos nuestros hermanos. Nosotros te lo pedimos por Jesús, tu hijo, nuestro hermano. AMEN.
