2 Church of St. Martha Miami Shores, FL March 2, 2014 Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time Dear Parishioners, God Is A Loving Parent Some scripture passages require a good deal of study before they yield their inner meaning. Not so with today s Gospel, a continuation of the Sermon on the Mount. Here we have Jesus well-known sayings about God s care for us. No one can serve two masters and Look at the birds in the sky have become idioms in our culture. Perhaps they have become too familiar. Jesus point is a simple one if we keep our hearts set on the important things, God will take care of the rest. His use of simple images from nature birds, flowers, grass would have resonated just as deeply with his listeners then as they do today. The brief passage from Isaiah, situated as it is in a longer section on the restoration of Zion, uses a wonderful feminine image to portray God s care for us. Even more than a mother s care for her own child is God s attentiveness to our needs. Juxtaposed with the Gospel reading, an image of God as doting parent surfaces. No wonder St. Paul in his letter to the Corinthians is more confident in the judgment of the Lord than in any human assessment! For those whose hearts are set on God s priorities, the time of judgment can bring nothing but good. Fr. Wilfredo Contreras READINGS FOR THE WEEK Monday: 1 Pt 1:3-9; Ps 111:1-2, 5-6, 9, 10c; Mk 10:17-27 Tuesday: 1 Pt 1:10-16; Ps 98:1-4; Mk 10:28-31 Wednesday: Jl 2:12-18; Ps 51:3-6ab, 12-14, 17; 2Cor 5:20-6:2; Mt 6:1-6, Thursday: Dt 30:15-20; Ps 1:1-4, 6; Lk 9:22-25 Friday: Is 58:1-9a; Ps 51:3-6ab, 18-19; Mt 9:14-15 Saturday: Is 58:9b-14; Ps 86:1-6; Lk 5:27-32 Sunday: Gn 2:7-9; 3:1-7; Ps 51:3-6, 12-13, 17; Rom 5:12-19 [12, 17-19]; Mt 4:1-11 Readings For Next Sunday March 9 First Reading The man and the woman ate the fruit of the one tree that God had told them to avoid, and their shame overtook them (Genesis 2:7-9; 3:1-7).

5 Iglesia St. Martha Miami Shores, FL Marzo 2, 2014 Octavo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario Estimados Feligreses Dios Es Un Padre Amoroso Algunas partes de las Escrituras requieren de conocer ciertos antecedentes históricos, prácticas culturales, etc., para entender su mensaje. Pero eso no pasa con el texto del Evangelio de hoy, una continuación del Sermón de la Montaña. Aquí tenemos las frases de Jesús diciendo cómo Dios cuida de nosotros. Por ejemplo, las frases: Nadie puede servir a dos amos y Miren las aves del cielo se usan tan frecuente en nuestra cultura. Quizá son tan populares. Jesús enfatiza una cosa tan sencilla, si ponemos nuestro corazón en cosas importantes, Dios proveerá el resto. La forma cómo Jesús relaciona cosas de la naturaleza, pájaros, flores, hierba, hicieron eco en los oídos de quienes lo escucharon entonces y de quienes hoy lo escuchan. El pasaje breve de Isaías, que está tomado de un texto más amplío que trata de la restauración de Sión, utiliza una imagen femenina para mostrar el cuidado de Dios por nosotros. Así como una madre cuida a su hijo, así de atento está Dios por nuestras necesidades. Juntando la historia del Evangelio, la imagen del amor paterno de Dios; no es de extrañarse que san Pablo en su carta a los corintios tiene más confianza en la forma cómo el Señor lo juzgara en lugar de los juicios humanos. Para aquellas personas que tienen puestas sus esperanzas en Dios, el tiempo del juicio lo único que puede traer son cosas buenas. Fr. Wilfredo Contreras Lecturas del próximo Domingo Primera lectura Entonces se les abrieron los ojos y ambos se dieron cuenta de que estaban desnudos. Cosieron, pues, unas hojas de higuera, y se hicieron unos taparrabos (Génesis 2:7-9; 3:1-7). Salmo Ten piedad, Señor, porque somos pecadores (Salmo 51 [50]). Segunda lectura Una sola trasgresión acarreó sentencia de muerte para todos, pero la rehabilitación merecida por uno solo, obtuvo perdón y vida para todos (Romanos 5:12-19 [12, 17-19]). Evangelio Adorarás al Señor, tu Dios, y a él solo servirás (Mateo 4:1-11). LECTURAS DE LA SEMANA Lunes: 1 Pe 1:3-9; Sal 111 (110):1-2, 5-6, 9, 10c; Mc 10:17-27 Martes: 1 Pe 1:10-16; Sal 98 (97):1-4; Mc 10:28-31 Miércoles: Jl 2:12-18; Sal 51 (50):3-6ab, 12-14, 17; 2 Cor 5:20-6:2; Mt 6:1-6, Jueves: Dt 30:15-20; Sal 1:1-4, 6; Lc 9:22-25 Viernes: Is 58:1-9a; Sal 51 (50):3-6ab, 18-19; Mt 9:14-15 Sábado: Is 58:9b-14; Sal 86 (85):1-6; Lc 5:27-32 Domingo: Gn 2:7-9; 3:1-7; Sal 51 (50):3-6, 12-13, 17; Rom 5:12-19 [12, 17-19]; Mt 4:1-11 El Club de Caballeros anuncia Las Becas Escolares del 2014 en memoria de John Raffa y en honor al Rev.
