The only way God dwells among us is to let go of ourselves and hand ourselves over to Jesus. On our own we would not be able to succeed; the good news is that we are not alone but God dwells within us and gives us all we need to be faithful. These Sundays before Pentecost remind us that as disciples we never have to feel like the whole task of living the gospel falls on our shoulders alone. God is always present, dwelling within us, to give us the strength we need to be faithful to Jesus’ commands. Only in this way can our everyday lives be fruitful. 


La única manera en que Dios habita entre nosotros es de librarnos de nosotros mismos y entregarnos a Jesús. Solos no podríamos lograrlo; la Buena Nueva es que no estamos solos porque Dios habita dentro de nosotros y nos da todo lo necesario para ser fieles. Estos Domingos antes de Pentecostés nos recuerdan que como discípulos nunca tenemos que sentirnos como si toda la tarea de vivir el Evangelio cae solo en nuestros hombros. Dios está siempre presente, habitando dentro de nosotros, para darnos la fuerza que necesitamos para ser fieles al mandato de Jesús. Solo de esta manera pueden dar éxito nuestras vidas cotidianas. 

Vincentian Meditation: 

Vincentian Meditation:St. Vincent was interested in feeding the hungry, visiting the prisoners, caring for the sick, educating the poor. But he was also intensely interested in helping people, particularly the poor, to be reconciled with God, to cherish their faith, and to be loyal to the Church. In one word, St. Vincent was interested not only in the bodies of the poor, but in their souls also. There are some people who are only interested in improving the material conditions of the poor. That is important, certainly, but that is only half the work. Every poor person has a soul. Every poor person has a responsibility to save his soul. Every poor person has need of help in that task. It was St. Vincent’s great achievement that he worked to save both the bodies and souls of the poor. He worked to save the whole person.

Meditación Vicentina:

A San Vicente le interesaba dar de comer al hambriento, visitar a los presos, dar cuidado a los enfermos, educar a los pobres. Pero también estaba intensamente interesado en ayudar a gente, particularmente a los pobres, a reconciliarse con Dios, para apreciar su fe, y ser leales a la Iglesia. En una palabra, San Vicente estaba interesado no tan solo en el bienestar físico de los pobres, pero en sus almas también. Hay algunas personas que están solamente interesadas en mejorar las condiciones materiales de los pobres. Eso es importante, seguramente, pero solo una parte de la tarea. Cada persona pobre tiene un alma. Cada persona pobre tiene la responsabilidad de salvar su alma. Cada persona pobre tiene necesidad de ayuda en esa tarea. Fue el logro más grande de San Vicente que trabajaba para salvar tanto el cuerpo y el alma de los pobres. Trabajó para salvar a la persona completa.
