Gabriele Giordano M. Scardocci, o.p. . . PDF format Print article . . Dear brothers and sisters, . San Raimondo di Peñafort, patrono dei giuristi e delle facoltà di diritto canonico, che secondo la pia leggenda attraversa le acque sul suo mantello di Frate Domenicano La Liturgia della Parola di questa III domenica del temo ordinario [cf. Born 8, 2-4.5-6.8-10; Will 18; 1 Color 12,12-30; LC 1,1-4; 4,14-21, readable texts, WHO], It recalled to my mind the memory of when for the first time I was on a ship. It was a ferry that carried from Naples to the island of Ischia. I also remember the presence of the crew: there was the ordinary seaman, the attendant to passengers, those responsible for the kitchen, il medico di bordo e infine, obviously, anche il capitano della nave ed i suoi assistenti. Ognuno aveva un compito ben preciso e distinto, but all, at the same time, avevano un’unica finalità: lead ship in the port of Ischia. . Questo esempio di diversità e di unità è anche il tema delle letture di oggi. Nella prima lettura tratta dall’Antico Testamento abbiamo ascoltato: . «Esdra aprì il libro in presenza di tutto il popolo. […] The Levites were reading the book of the law of God, translating and explaining the way, e così facevano comprendere la lettura» [Born 8, 4 – 6] . . Questo libro che viene spiegato è la Legge mosaica che gli ebrei avevano ricevuto tramite Mosè al Sinai. So both Ezra, prophet, that the Levites, the priests make clear something that God had revealed to him but that he needed clarification. In that passage we also know that is announced a day consecrated to the Lord. Therefore, the work of the prophets and Jewish Levites was almost show the existence of a time dedicated to God. Leviti e profeti, therefore, They have a specific task: make clear and live the message of God. . Su questo si concentra anche la seconda lettura quando San Paolo scrivendo ai Corinzi afferma: . «Dio ha disposto le membra del corpo in modo distinto, come egli ha voluto» [1 Color 1,14] . Ecco dunque che viene confermato ciò è il Signore stesso a volere una certa distinzione e diversità all’interno del Popolo di Dio. From the first two readings we also learn that the Lord asks us to learn in our place. Being able to understand what are their gifts and put them at the service of the whole ecclesial community without being selfish is the greatest act of humility. It is in fact God Himself to call every single person in a specific task: those to religious life or priesthood, those at the wedding, as a primary distinction. . L’inizio del Vangelo di Luca specifica uno dei compiti comuni che Gesù ha demandato a tutta la Chiesa. We read: «Gesù ritornò in Galilea […] Insegnava nelle loro sinagoghe e gli rendevano lode» [LC 4,14] . To teach or explain the word of God, or indeed the content of our faith is the task that we all believers receive from Jesus. Certain, first noi ministri, in a homily or in the daily catechetical. But the laity. In particular those who live the faith in the world, together with his sons and his family, can not only with the explanation of what he believes, also bear witness to the beauty of faith in God. A faith that is alive meeting, tender and real with Jesus Christ. In this way, by clarifying what we believe and hope that the Lord has given us, can we allow faith becomes love of charity. So to offer a knowledge of God let's give a loving God and our neighbor concretely. We can say with the Lord: . «Oggi si è compiuta questa Scrittura che voi avete ascoltato». . Thus, really, It also unveiled some’ of that great mystery of the Triune God who loves us, with the authority of a Father, with the beauty of the Son and of the Holy Spirit motherhood. It will be really the most beautiful and intense caress that we can give to those we love, or who does not feel loved by anyone. . Explain and show our faith so it does not get in the chair, It is not filled with pride, but first of all to love with an act of deep love and tender and generate the union of all men with God. As she is written by the painter Eugene Delacroix in his diary, dove esprime che in Dio possiamo tutti diventare i grandi scrittori e artisti dell’unità dell’Amore: . «Il sentimento dell’unità e il potere di realizzarlo nell’opera fanno il grande scrittore e il grande artista». . Amen. . Rome, 27 January 2019 . . «You will know the truth and the truth will set you free» [GV 8,32], but bring, spread and defend the truth not only of risks but also the costs.
