EVERYDAY STEWARDSHIP

February 17, 2019

6th Sunday in Ordinary Time

 

  When I was a child, I often thought of the Church as something mystical and supernatural. I wasn't wrong in my understanding of the Body of Christ, for surely the Church has these characteristics. However, even though we speak about the foundation of all we are as Church being the "mystery of Christ," Jesus became a man so that supernatural element could break into the natural world in a profound way. What we once could not see, we now see. What we saw as a God in a distant place now dwelt among us. It is one of the aspects of Catholicism that I have grown to appreciate the most as I have matured: for a Catholic, the supernatural is natural. The communion of saints is heavenly and earthly at the same time.

  The Beatitudes instruct us about this reality. Pope Francis reminds us that holiness is "not about swooning in mystic rapture." Holiness is about living in the real world and doing extraordinary things with our ordinary lives. Our stewardship way of life consists of actions in the natural world that have extraordinary repercussions.

  Do not ever take your simple actions of generosity and love for granted. As disciples called to a life of stewardship, we participate in something more profound than what we can see. We are blessed to be called to follow Jesus, and we bring blessing to all those with whom we choose to share ourselves.

LA CORRESPONSABILIDAD DIARIA (EVERYDAY STEWARDSHIP)

17 de febrero de 2019

6º domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

 

  Cuando era niño, a menudo pensaba que la Iglesia era algo místico y sobrenatural. No me equivoqué en mi comprensión del Cuerpo de Cristo, por seguro la Iglesia tiene estas características. Sin embargo, aunque hablamos del fundamento de todo lo que somos como Iglesia siendo el "misterio de Cristo", Jesús se convirtió en un hombre para que ese elemento sobrenatural pueda penetrar en el mundo natural de una manera profunda. Lo que una vez no podíamos ver, ahora lo vemos. Lo que vimos como un Dios en un lugar distante ahora habitaba entre nosotros. Es uno de los aspectos del catolicismo que más he apreciado a medida que he madurado: para un católico, lo sobrenatural es natural. La comunión de los santos es celestial y terrenal al mismo tiempo.

  Las bienaventuranzas nos instruyen sobre esta realidad. El Papa Francisco nos recuerda que la santidad "no se trata de desmayarse en éxtasis místico". La santidad se trata de vivir en el mundo real y hacer cosas extraordinarias con nuestras vidas ordinarias. Nuestro estilo de vida de corresponsabilidad consiste en acciones en el mundo natural que tienen repercusiones extraordinarias.

  Nunca des por hecho tus acciones simples de generosidad y amor. Como discípulos llamados a una vida de corresponsabilidad, participamos en algo más profundo de lo que podemos ver. Estamos bendecidos de ser llamados a seguir a Jesús, y traemos bendiciones a todos aquellos con quienes elegimos compartirnos.  -Tracy Earl Welliver, MTS
