Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Proclaim his marvelous deeds to all the nations”. (Ps 96)

From the Pastor's Desk

Dear brothers and sisters,

This prologue, which is very short and very elegantly written, explains why he wrote the book – to provide an orderly, documented account of the life of Christ, starting at the beginning, and to show the salvific meaning of “the things, which have been accomplished among us”. The mission he has been given is one of evangelizing. At the centre of his preaching we find the sermon of the mount and the parables of the Kingdom. The evangelist likes to draw our attention to the power and uniqueness of Jesus’ words, which cause people to throng around him. To put his plan of salvation into operation our Lord chooses disciples, and from them he selects the group of the twelve apostles. He trains them, reveals his glory to them and sends them out to preach, on a mission, which anticipates the world-wide mission of the Church.

God bless you,

Queridos hermanos,

Este prólogo, que es muy corto y muy elegantemente escrito, explica por qué escribió el libro - que proporciona detalles ordenados, documentados de la vida de Cristo, comenzando por el principio, y para mostrar el significado salvífico de “las cosas que han sucedido entre nosotros”. La misión que se le ha dado es la de evangelizar. En el centro de su predicación nos encontramos con el sermón del monte y las parábolas del Reino. Al evangelista le gusta llamar la atención sobre el poder y la singularidad de las palabras de Jesús, que hacen que la gente se agolpe a su alrededor. Para poner su plan de salvación en funcionamiento nuestro Señor elige discípulos, y de ellos selecciona el grupo de los doce apóstoles. Él les entrena, les revela su gloria y los envía a predicar, en una misión que anticipa la misión universal de la Iglesia.

Dios les bendiga,
— Fr. Francisco M. Tovar
