Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

“For the Lord watches over the way of the just,

but the way of the wicked vanishes”. (Ps 1:6)

From the Pastor's Desk

Dear brothers and sisters,

The eight beatitudes in the gospel of Matthew are summed up in four by St. Luke, but with four opposing woes. In both instances “The beatitude we are promised confronts us with decisive moral choices. It invites us to purify our hearts of bad instincts and to seek the love of God above all else. It teaches us that true happiness is not found in riches or well-being, in human fame or power, or in any human achievement - however beneficial it may be - such as science, technology and art, or indeed in any creature, but in God alone, the source of every good and of all love” (CCC, 1733).

God bless you,

Queridos hermanos,

Las ocho bienaventuranzas del evangelio de Mateo están resumidas en cuatro por san Lucas, pero con cuatro lamentaciones o advertencias. En las dos instancias “La bienaventuranza que se nos promete nos confronta con una decision moral decisiva. Nos invita a purificar nuestro corazón de los malos instintos y a buscar el amor a Dios sobre todas las cosas. Nos enseña que la verdadera felicidad no se encuentra en las riquezas o el bienestar personal, en la fama o el poder, o en ningún logro humano - por muy beneficioso que sea - como la ciencia, la tecnología o el arte, o ni siquiera en ninguna creature, si no solo en Dios, la fuente de todo bien y todo amor” (CIC 1723).

Dios les bendiga,
— Fr. Francisco M. Tovar
