Weekly Reflection

07-03-2022We Celebrate Worship Resource, Vol. 47, No. 2

"Peace to this household" (Luke 10:5). Jesus asks his disciples to first say these words when they enter a stranger’s house on their mission. “If a peaceful person lives there,” he goes on to say, “your peace will rest on him (or her)” (10:6). After Jesus was raised, when he entered the upper room where the disciples had gathered, “Peace” was his first word to them. His disciples all being peaceful people, the Holy Spirit came to rest on them. What we hear in today’s Gospel has parallel on Pentecost. Today we hear Jesus sends seventy-two disciples, a symbolic number that represented all the nations of the world, to heal the sick and proclaim the kingdom of God. On Pentecost, the Spirit enabled the disciples to speak in tongues that could be understood by people of every nation. Jesus then sent them out to forgive sins and make disciples of all nations. The disciples were prepared to do it then because Jesus prepared them to do it now. Now we are those disciples. We are the ones called to bring peace, to forgive our neighbor, to heal the afflicted, and to speak to others so they may understand. May God bless us on our mission so that we may return each day from the harvest rejoicing.

Where can you labor for the harvest this week?

"Paz"

"Que la paz reine en esta casa" (Lucas 10:5). Jesús les pide a sus discípulos que primero digan estas palabras cuando entren en la casa de un extraño en su misión. “Si allí hay gente amante a la paz”, continúa diciendo, “sobre él (o ella) el deseo de paz de ustedes se cumplirá” (10:6). Después de que Jesús resucitó, cuando entró en el aposento alto donde se habían reunido los discípulos, “Paz” fue su primera palabra para ellos. Siendo todos sus discípulos gente pacífica, el Espíritu Santo vino a posarse sobre ellos. Lo que escuchamos en el Evangelio de hoy tiene un paralelo con Pentecostés. Hoy escuchamos que Jesús envía setenta y dos discípulos, un número simbólico que representaba a todas las naciones del mundo, para sanar a los enfermos y proclamar el reino de Dios. En Pentecostés, el Espíritu capacitó a los discípulos para hablar en lenguas que podían ser entendidas por personas de todas las naciones. Entonces Jesús los envió a perdonar los pecados y hacer discípulos a todas las naciones. Los discípulos estaban preparados para hacerlo entonces porque Jesús los preparó para hacerlo ahora. Ahora nosotros somos esos discípulos. Somos los llamados a llevar la paz, a perdonar al prójimo, a sanar a los afligidos ya hablar a los demás para que entiendan. Que Dios nos bendiga en nuestra misión para que podamos regresar cada día de la cosecha regocijados.

¿Dónde puedes trabajar por la cosecha esta semana?
