Thirty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time First Reading: Deuteronomy 6:2-6 Moses commands the people to love and fear God, and always keep the commandments that they were given. He tells them to observe all statutes so that they will continue to grow and prosper, and tells them that they must love God with all their soul and strength. Second Reading: Hebrews 7:23-28 Under the old covenant there were many priests, but Jesus will now remain high priest forever because he will live forever, and always be available to those who want to be saved. He does not need to offer sacrifice every day for the sins of his people, because he offered himself up in payment for their sins. Gospel: Mark 12:28b-34 One of the scribes asked Jesus which commandment is the first, and he replied that the first is to love and honor the Lord and no one else. Jesus explained that they must love God with all their heart, and love their neighbor. The scribe agreed that loving God completely and loving one's neighbor is better than any sacrifice they could make.

4 COMUNIDAD HISPANA PARROQUIA DE SAN CHRISTOPHER Y SAN PATRICIO 3094 Albany Post Rd Buchanan NY TELF. 914) FAX (914) HORARIO DE ATENCIÓN EN ESPAÑOL: LUNES, MARTES, JUEVES, VIERNES 5:15PM- 7:45PM Página Web: EVENTOS DE LA SEMANA DEL 4 AL 11 DE NOVIEMBRE Domingo 4 de Noviembre: Segunda Colecta para ayudar con el Mantenimiento y Reparaciones Jueves 8 de Noviembre: Grupo de Oración a las 7:30 pm en el sótano del salón Parroquial Domingo 11 de Noviembre: Segunda Colecta para ayudar con el Seguro a la Arquidiócesis TRIGÉSIMO PRIMER DOMINGO DEL TIEMPO ORDINARIO El escriba fiel sólo le pregunta a Jesús: Cuál es el primero de todos los mandamientos?. Pero recibe más de lo que pidió, pues en vez de un mandamiento Jesús le da dos. Parece que, desde la perspectiva de Dios, emparejar esos dos mandamientos tiene un perfecto sentido. La humanidad fue creada a la imagen y semejanza de Dios, En efecto, la humanidad fue creada por el amor de Dios. Consecuentemente, desde la perspectiva divina, todos son dignos del amor. Todos fueron creados a imagen de Dios, Todos fueron creados por el amor de Dios. Mirándolo desde esa perspectiva nos damos cuenta de que el segundo mandamiento fluye lógicamente del primero. Sabemos también que Dios vive en cada uno de nosotros. Si miramos al otro no superficialmente, sino con intensidad, veremos el rostro de Jesús que se hace visible en el rostro de ellos. El Espíritu Santo habita en nosotros. Por tanto, amar al prójimo es amar a Dios. Y por la parábola del buen samaritano sabemos lo que Dios nos pide cuando nos dice que debemos amar a nuestro prójimo. El escriba entiende inmediatamente por qué Jesús incluye el segundo mandamiento en el primero y recuerda entonces las palabras de Oseas: yo quiero misericordia y no sacrificios (Oseas 6, 6) cuando repite las palabras de Jesús. Por eso es que Jesús le dice: No estás lejos del Reino de Dios (Marcos 12, 34). Pero ahora viene la parte importante: el escriba debe poner sus conocimientos en práctica. Tenía el deseo de hacer la voluntad de Dios, entendió bien la respuesta y expresó su esperanza de ponerla en práctica. Desafortunadamente no sabemos en qué paró todo. No sabemos lo que este escriba anónimo hizo. Esperamos que haya vivido el resto de su vida conforme a lo que había aprendido.
