Men Want The Power God´s Mercy

Parte superior do formulário

(Sp.sp. 03.07.2012, to 15.30 hrs).

Our discussion today, is in the Gospel of St. Matthew, chapter 20, verses 17-28:

"At that time, 17enquanto he went up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside, and during the walk, said to them: 18" Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and teachers of the Law .
 They will condemn him to death, 19e and deliver to the Gentiles to mock him, and scourged him and crucify him. But on the third day rise again. "

20A mother of Zebedee's sons came to Jesus with her sons and knelt down with the intention of making a request. 21Jesus asked, "What do you want?" She said, "Command that these my two sons may sit, in your kingdom, one at your right and one on your left."
 22Jesus therefore answered them: "Do not know what you are asking. Did you able to drink the cup that I drink? "They said," We ". 23Então Jesus said to them: "Indeed ye shall drink my cup, but not for me to grant a place at my right or my left. My Father who will give these places to those for which he has prepared. "

24Quando the other ten disciples heard this they were angry against the two brothers. 25Jesus, however, called them and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them and oppress them great.
 26Entre you should not be so. Whoever wants to become great, become your servant; 27quem wants to be first must be your servant. 28Pois, the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve and give His life a ransom for many. "


 A.BigCuore´s Opinion: my brothers and sisters in Christ in this Gospel refers to the idea of ​​power. The disciples did not understand anything of what Jesus spoke. He said his passion and death, and the disciples were "fighting" each other to see who would get the "seam" that would result in "material power" of Jesus, and they, being his friends would enjoy.
A woman thinking in the power of Jesus and its bounty, was soon asking the Master to get a "bite" to his two sons.

In light of today, the same thing happens saved due proportions. The man from Adam and Eve, always lock their struggle for power. Power means status, money, sex, pleasure, etc.etc.
Even within the church in pastoral, we notice many people interested in only "appear", but works in secret to do that so few act.

The Master spoke of the power of love and mercy. Feeling the pain of the "other" as their own. Suffer with him, help him to carry his burden.

I came to SERVE and not be served, wisely says the Master Jesus!
We must learn to praise the pain, suffering. When we put our suffering in the dimension that Jesus put it, we too find strength to overcome our fears and our existential problems. We always say that the Christian is one who does not flee from pain and suffering, he would face, but differently in the world, people who are not of God but of the material world only.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and always timely intercession of his Blessed Mother, I beg you Lord God, to enlighten our minds and hearts, giving us the deliverance and healing of our infirmities, both physical mental, spiritual and emotional. And we can have COMPASSION of the weakest and helpless, helping them to alleviate their sufferings. May we be united, fraternal, doing works of mercy materials, namely, giving food to the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, giving welcome to the homeless, visiting the sick and imprisoned.
Father touch the most hardened hearts of political elites, dominant in our country in order to implement public policies that are fair, consistent with the needs of our long-suffering people of Brazil.
All this we ask, O Heavenly Father, in the name of his Son Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh who died for us in the holy cross, and always timely intercession of his beloved Mother, Mary of Nazareth! Amen, amen, amen!
