    Reflexiones para la Homilía

    Nuestros padres y madres son muy importantes para nosotros. No podemos pensar en nuestra propia vida sin pensar en ellos y daríamos cualquier cosa por que ellos vivieran para siempre. Sabemos que harían cualquier cosa por nosotros y nuestro bienestar. Los que salimos de nuestros países con ellos, sabíamos que lo hacían por nosotros, para que tuviéramos una vida mejor. Los que emigramos como adultos, lo hicimos también por nuestros hijos. Los niños siempre tienen absoluta confianza en que su mama y su papa les darán todo lo que necesitan; por eso hoy se nos dice que tengamos esa misma confianza en el Dios que es nuestro padre y nuestra madre y que se ocupara de nosotros en todas nuestras necesidades y problemas. Eso quiere decir también que no podemos estar con Dios y con el dinero al mismo tiempo. Si la mente y el corazón están preocupados por como lograr y guardar nuestro dinero, no habrá lugar para Dios. No recordaremos las llamadas que nos hace el amor y al servicio a los demás, tan ocupados como andamos con nuestras cuentas y nuestras posesiones. Si el dinero ocupa el lugar de Dios, querremos que se nos pague por todo lo que hacemos; pero hay muchas, muchísimas cosas, que no se hacen por dinero, sino por amor. Hay misiones en la vida que no tienen nada que ver con recompensas materiales ni reconocimiento de otros, sino con la llamada de Dios a ocuparse de sus cosas y de sus hijos. Muchas veces estamos preocupados por nuestro propio futuro materia, por nuestra seguridad y por la de nuestros hijos; y ciertamente somos responsables de ellos, pero no podemos dejar que todas esas cosas ocupen el lugar al que nos llama Dios. Dios nos llama a buscar el reino primero y el reino es justicia, verdad y servicio a los demás. No se angustien por el mañana mientras están haciendo este servicio que les pide Dios; por eso también, cuando tengamos la sensación de que nuestros hijos podrían estar sintiendo una llamada al servicio de Dios en cualquier manera o forma, y temamos que les alejaría de una carrera rentable o prestigiosa, debemos considerar que Dios cuidara de ellos como una tierna madre y padre, y les dará lo que verdaderamente necesitan: ser feliz con la verdadera felicidad que proviene de estar con Dios.
