Reflection:

Humility is recognizing that by God’s choosing us we are raised up to share in divine riches and bestowed with the great dignity of sharing in God’s life. If this is how God relates to us, then this is how the disciple relates to others. As God has bestowed dignity on us, so do we shower others with dignity. If we wish God to invite us to the divine banquet, then we also extend ourselves to all others regardless of social, economic, religious, or cultural status. Before disciples can be hosts to the poor and disadvantaged they must humbly recognize themselves as those who have received a place of honor at God’s banquet table. Humility is recognizing that we are gifted, enriched, and nourished by God so that we can then reach out to others in the same way.

  Reflexión:

La humildad está reconociendo que con ser escogidos por Dios somos levantados a compartir en riquezas divinas y concedidos con la gran dignidad de compartir en la vida de Dios. Si esto es como Dios se relata con nosotros, entonces esto es como el discípulo se relata a otros. Así como Dios ha otorgado dignidad sobre nosotros, así nosotros derramamos a otros con dignidad. Si deseamos que Dios nos invite al banquete divino, entonces nos extendemos a todos otros sin tomar en cuenta su estatus social, económico, religioso o estado cultural. Antes de que discípulos puedan ser anfitriones de los pobres y desfavorecidos, tienen que humildemente reconocerse con aquellos que han recibido un lugar de honor en la mesa del banquete. Humildad es poder reconocer que somos dotados, enriquecidos y alimentados por Dios para que podamos entonces dar la mano a otros en la misma manera.

Vincentian Meditation: 

“St. Vincent asks his followers to be humble, loving servants of the poor. We know that he gave great importance to humility in all that we do for the poor. He did so because that was his conviction and the fruit of his own meditation on the manner of life lived by Jesus. St. Vincent was also convinced that it was all-important that the poor would feel at ease in our presence. What we do for the poor must come, not only from a loving but also from a humble heart. In a very striking sentence at the end of one of his conferences, St. Vincent shares the conviction that however charitable we may be, if we are not humble, we do not have real charity.”

Meditación Vicentina:

“San Vicente pide a sus seguidores que sean humildes, y sirvientes amorosos de los pobres. Sabemos que él dió gran importancia a la humildad en todo lo que hacemos para el pobre. Lo hizo porque era su convicción y fruto de su propia meditación en la manera de vida vivida por Jesús. San Vicente también estaba convencido que era de suma importancia que los pobres se sintieran cómodos en nuestra presencia. Lo que hacemos para ellos tiene que venir, no solo de un corazón amoroso, pero también de un corazón humilde. En una declaración sorprendente al final de una de sus conferencias, San Vicente comparte la convicción que por muy caritativos que seamos, si no somos humildes, no tenemos caridad real.”

More Lectors Are Needed

The proclamation of the Word of God at Mass is essential to the celebration of each Mass. If you or someone you know would like to be a Lector at either Daily Mass or one of the Weekend Masses, please call us at the parish office (760)872-7231. We are currently putting a list together of people who like to proclaim the Word of God, a training will take place in the near future. Prospective candidates for this ministry must have celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation, if they are married, must be married in the Church and if single, cannot be living with someone as husband and wife without the benefit of marriage.

Have a blessed week
