Called to be God´s love in today´s world

 What we do

Pray with us

“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites… they love to pray for people to see them. But when you pray, go to your private room and, when you have shut your door, pray to the One who is in that secret place” (Matthew 6:5-6).

“I came from God and I am here”  Jn 8: 31-42


Looking at the reality that Jesus is facing, we find deception and contradiction with respect to God, to His design, to His promises; with a false and clever interpretation of the Scripture and of Tradition, building a distorted image of God in favor of the religious class.  They have made the holy place and the house of prayer the center of domination and exploitation of the people, making them believe that God is interested only in "good" people who obey the law and other religious obligations.  Finally, look where you will, the reality in which Jesus countrymen live is contaminated with falsehoods, lies and hoaxes.


This is why each of Jesus' words or deeds lets us understand that the reality He must face at any given time is a composite of lies and contradictions.  In that framework, Jesus is presented as the Way to finding the Truth, if we accept Him as God's messenger.  "The truth shall set you free", this is to live in conformity with our vocation as children of God.  This "liberty always means that ability that we must have at the beginning, to make ourselves available to build a community and to participate towards real and long-lasting results, on three indivisible planes: 1.- the person's relationship to the world, as a person; 2.- to people, as sisters or brothers; and 3.- to God, as His children" (Puebla 321s.).   Accepting Jesus, then, is accepting that God is here, that He walks beside us, that He lives our circumstances, that He assumes our reality and supports our initiatives in searching for a better life.


REFLECTION:  In the Seven Words document, we read: “The Trinity is the source and model of relationships. Through the relationship I–You, we are transformed as we experience the paschal mystery. Our relationships consist of four: with God, with self, with others and with all creation. The assumed relationships are expressed and recreated, and need to be a strong impulse of new life as we live the Incarnation to which we are called." What does life in liberty consist of?  How do we carry it out?
