LA PALABRA GLOBAL DEL DÍA

26/09/2020 – Sábado de la 25ª semana de Tiempo Ordinario.

PRIMERA LECTURA

Acuérdate del Creador en los años mozos, antes de que el polvo vuelva a la tierra y el espíritu a Dios.

Lectura del libro del Eclesiastés 11, 9-12, 8

Disfruta mientras eres muchacho y pásalo bien en la juventud; déjate llevar del corazón y de lo que te recrea la vista; pero sábete que Dios te llevará a juicio para dar cuenta de todo.

Rechaza las penas del corazón y rehúye los dolores del cuerpo: adolescencia y juventud son efímeras.

Acuérdate de tu Creador en tus años mozos, antes de que lleguen los días aciagos y te alcancen los años en que digas: «No les saco gusto»; antes de que se oscurezcan el sol, la luna y las estrellas, y tras la lluvia vuelva el nublado.

Ese día temblarán los guardianes de la casa, y los valientes se encorvarán; las que muelen serán pocas y se pararán, los que miran por las ventanas se ofuscarán, las puertas de la calle se cerrarán y el ruido del molino será solo un eco; se debilitará el canto de los pájaros, las canciones se irán apagando; darán miedo las alturas y en las calles rondarán los terrores; cuando florezca el almendro y se arrastre la langosta y sea ineficaz la alcaparra; porque el hombre va a la morada de su eternidad y el cortejo fúnebre recorre las calles.

Antes de que se rompa el hilo de plata, y se destroce la copa de oro, y se quiebre el cántaro en la fuente, y se raje la polea del pozo, y el polvo vuelva a la tierra que fue, y el espíritu vuelva al Dios que lo dio.

Vanidad de vanidades, dice Qohelet, vanidad de vanidades, todo es vanidad.

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.

Aleluya Cf. 2 Tim 1, 10
R. Aleluya, aleluya, aleluya.

Nuestro Salvador, Cristo Jesús, destruyó la muerte
e hizo brillar la vida por medio del Evangelio. R.

READINGS OF THE DAY

 

A reading from the Book of Ecclesiastes 
ECCL 11:9—12:8

Rejoice, O young man, while you are young
and let your heart be glad in the days of your youth.
Follow the ways of your heart,
the vision of your eyes;
Yet understand that as regards all this
God will bring you to judgment.
Ward off grief from your heart
and put away trouble from your presence,
though the dawn of youth is fleeting.

Remember your Creator in the days of your youth,
before the evil days come
And the years approach of which you will say,
I have no pleasure in them;
Before the sun is darkened,
and the light, and the moon, and the stars,
while the clouds return after the rain;
When the guardians of the house tremble,
and the strong men are bent,
And the grinders are idle because they are few,
and they who look through the windows grow blind;
When the doors to the street are shut,
and the sound of the mill is low;
When one waits for the chirp of a bird,
but all the daughters of song are suppressed;
And one fears heights,
and perils in the street;
When the almond tree blooms,
and the locust grows sluggish
and the caper berry is without effect,
Because man goes to his lasting home,
and mourners go about the streets;
Before the silver cord is snapped
and the golden bowl is broken,
And the pitcher is shattered at the spring,
and the broken pulley falls into the well,
And the dust returns to the earth as it once was,
and the life breath returns to God who gave it.

Vanity of vanities, says Qoheleth,
all things are vanity!

The word of the God.

From the Gospel according to Luke
LK 9:43B-45

+

While they were all amazed at his every deed,
Jesus said to his disciples,
“Pay attention to what I am telling you.
The Son of Man is to be handed over to men.”
But they did not understand this saying;
its meaning was hidden from them
so that they should not understand it,
and they were afraid to ask him about this saying.

 

Lord’s word.

WORDS OF THE HOLY FATHER

Each one of us might think: “what will happen to me? What will my cross be like?» We do not know”. We do not know. We need to ask for the grace not to flee the cross  through fear when it comes, eh. That is true. It scares us. It was his mother who was closest to him by the Cross. Perhaps today, on the day when we pray to her, it would be good to ask her for the grace, not to take away the fear – fear of the cross is inevitable – but for the grace not to be scared and run away from the cross. She was there and she knows how to remain close to the Cross. (Santa Marta, 28 September 2013)
