Proclamation of the Gospel (Lk 3.10 to 18)
At that time, the crowds asked John, "What shall we do," John replied, "He that hath two coats, let him share with him who has none; and who has food, let him do likewise "were also to collectors baptism of taxes, and said to John:" Teacher, what should we do "John answered: "Exact no more more than was established." There were also soldiers who asked, "And we, what should we do?"
John replied, "Do not take money from anyone by force, nor make false accusations; Remain satisfied with your salary! "
The people were in expectation and all they asked in their hearts if John would not be the Messiah. So John said to all, "I baptize you with water, but it will come one who is stronger than me. I am not worthy to untie the strap of his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. It will come with shovel in hand, will clear his threshing floor and gather the wheat into the garner; but the chaff he will burn in the fire that is not quenched. "And yet in many other ways, John announced the Good News to the people. "
LECTIO DIVINE - A. BIGCUORE: Jõao was the last prophet of the Old Testament. He is the watershed between the A.T. and the New Testament. John was one bistismo conversion. It was the forerunner of Jesus.
Not to be confused with John the Evangelist. This John in today's Gospel, John the Baptist, whom God instructed to baptize Jesus. The greatest born of woman, in the words of the Master Jesus.This gospel that falls perfectly in the political and social situation of our Brazil, current. John teaches all the true ETHICS: the HONESTY !!!
Pity that our politicians do not practice this assertion. John teaches us to SHARE. Who has more, donate more to the brothers and sisters in need.
We ecológtico disaster the city of Mariana, in Minas Gerais. How many brothers and sisters are in trouble because they lose some of everything they had. Meanwhile, in Brasilia, we have a president fighting tooth and nail to defend their mandate. We have a mayor, acting the same way. While Brazil's economy is sinking day by day, striding !. Deeply regrettable !!! And the worst part of this whole story is that many congressmen, call themselves "Christians" !. Gasp !!! Using God's name in vain!
Let us ask God to touch the hearts of our leaders so that they have minimal sensitivity to the suffering of the Brazilian people, especially the most helpless and weak in our society.Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patroness lationo American people, can extend its protective mantle over our country, Brazil, and instil in our leaders, common sense, and minimal sensiblilidade for the sufferings of our people! Amen!
The blessing that comes from heaven, can illuminate our rulers and the Brazilian people. The Blessing of God who is Almighty: the Father, the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, amen!Grace, peace and joy in their hearts! Jesus lives, reigns and is the Lord of all history !.
