Gospel (20.10.110 - Luke, 12, 49-53)
"At that time Jesus said to his disciples: 49" I came to cast fire upon the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50I must receive a baptism, and as I look forward until it is accomplished!
51Do you think I come to bring peace on earth? Instead, I tell you I came to bring division. 52P Therefore, henceforth, a family of five, will be divided three against two and two against three; 53ficarão divided: father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother in law against the daughter and the daughter against the mother. "
BigCuore`s Reflexion: fire is the symbol of the Holy Spirit, that blazing fire that burns our sins, we turn for the better. Jesus, his Gospel, really brought division between people. The Gospel is like a sword that cuts symbol, divide!
They may notice a family: when all its members are divided by conflicting thoughts and philosophies, much discord reigns within this family, many quarrels and divisions. But on the other hand, when all members are in tune with God and his kingdom, harmony, peace, serenity, balance and joy in the same family do not know.
Jesus did not promise and not brought the "pax romana" as many of the ruling elites thought. He came to bring true peace, that which is born in hearts available, pure, just, free, therefore, evil and wickedness. But unfortunately, many do not understand and still to this day, do not understand and live the true meaning proclaim his Gospel.
GOD IS LOVE!. Tell us the Evangelist John, and only the heart can feel and live the fullness of love, embodied in the Holy Eucharist, which the Master has given us.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father in the name of thy Son Jesus Christ, and under the protective mantle of Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, I praise You and bless Your holy name!. Make it so we can understand and live your message of peace, love, harmony and joy. Touch our hearts hardened, often by the values of the world, and convert them to your heart, humble and meek. Amen!
Blessings to you my brother and my sister pouring from the heavens in peace, serenity, prosperity, harmony and joy in their hearts!
