LA PALABRA GLOBAL DEL DÍA

24/09/2020 – Jueves de la 25ª semana de Tiempo Ordinario.

PRIMERA LECTURA

Nada hay nuevo bajo el sol.

Lectura del libro del Eclesiastés 1, 2-11

¡Vanidad de vanidades! – dice Qohelet – ¡Vanidad de vanidades; todo es vanidad!

¿Qué saca el hombre de todas los afanes con que se afana bajo el sol?

Una generación se va, otra generación viene, pero la tierra siempre permanece.

Sale el sol, se pone el sol, se afana por llegar a su puesto, y de allí vuelve a salir. Sopla hacia el sur, gira al norte, gira que te gira el viento, y vuelve el viento a girar.

Todos los ríos se encaminan al mar, y el mar nunca se llena; pero siempre se encaminan los ríos al mismo sitio.

Todas las cosas cansan y nadie es capaz de explicarlas. No se sacian los ojos de ver ni se hartan los oídos de oír.

Lo que pasó volverá a pasar; lo que ocurrió volverá a ocurrir: nada hay nuevo bajo el sol.

De algunas cosas se dice:«Mira, esto es nuevo». Sin embargo, ya sucedió en otros tiempos mucho antes de nosotros.

Nadie se acuerda de los antiguos, y lo mismo pasará con los que vengan: sus sucesores no se acordarán de ellos.

Palabra de Dios

Sal 89, 3-4. 5-6. 12-13. 14 y 17

R. Señor, tú has sido nuestro refugio de generación en generación.

Tú reduces el hombre a polvo,
diciendo: «Retornad, hijos de Adán».
Mil años en tu presencia son un ayer que pasó;
una vela nocturna. R.

Si tú los retiras
son como un sueño,
como hierba que se renueva
que florece y se renueva por la mañana,
y por la tarde la siegan y se seca. R.

Enséñanos a calcular nuestros años,
para que adquiramos un corazón sensato.
Vuélvete, Señor, ¿hasta cuándo?
Ten compasión de tus siervos. R.

Por la mañana sácianos de tu misericordia,
y toda nuestra vida será alegría y júbilo.
Baje a nosotros la bondad del Señor
y haga prósperas las obras de nuestras manos.
Sí, haga prósperas las obras de nuestras manos. R.

THE GLOBAL WORD OF THE DAY

09/24/2020 – Thursday of the 25nd week in Ordinary Time. 

A reading from the Book of Ecclesiastes 
ECCL 1:2-11

Vanity of vanities, says Qoheleth,
vanity of vanities! All things are vanity!
What profit has man from all the labor
which he toils at under the sun?
One generation passes and another comes,
but the world forever stays.
The sun rises and the sun goes down;
then it presses on to the place where it rises.
Blowing now toward the south, then toward the north,
the wind turns again and again, resuming its rounds.
All rivers go to the sea,
yet never does the sea become full.
To the place where they go,
the rivers keep on going.
All speech is labored;
there is nothing one can say.
The eye is not satisfied with seeing
nor is the ear satisfied with hearing.

What has been, that will be;
what has been done, that will be done.
Nothing is new under the sun.
Even the thing of which we say, “See, this is new!”
has already existed in the ages that preceded us.
There is no remembrance of the men of old;
nor of those to come will there be any remembrance
among those who come after them.

The word of the God.

From the Gospel according to Luke

LK 9:7-9

 
+

Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was happening,
and he was greatly perplexed because some were saying,
“John has been raised from the dead”;
others were saying, “Elijah has appeared”;
still others, “One of the ancient prophets has arisen.”
But Herod said, “John I beheaded.
Who then is this about whom I hear such things?”
And he kept trying to see him.

Lord’s word.

WORDS OF THE HOLY FATHER

Vanity makes us bloat, but it does not last long, as it is like a bubble, and never brings any true gain. All of the things that he does are to pretend, out of vanity, and in the end what does he gain? This is vanity. Vanity is like ‘osteoporosis’ of the soul: the bones look good from the outside, but on the inside they are ruined. (Santa Marta, 22 September 2016)
