Social sin

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

The first reading on this fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time is taken from the book of the prophet Amos, who has been called by many authors and Biblical scholars the prophet of social justice.

Biblical prophets come from many different walks of life and trades. We learn in the passage proclaimed this Sunday that Amos was a shepherd and a dresser of sycamores. The primary task of the Biblical prophets is to call the people of God back to Him, to lead them down a path of conversion, repentance and salvation, to open their hearts to grace.

Last week we considered grace, the love and life of God that is freely and lavishly offered to us so that we can persevere in every good deed and participate to the fullest possible extent in divine life. Of course, our participation in divine life began when our existence began in our mothers´ womb and will be brought to fulfillment when, through the grace of God, we hope to be admitted to the communion of saints for all eternity. As we journey through life, the Lord offers us the assistance of grace to do good and to deepen our communion with Him. In the mysterious interaction that takes place between our human freedom, another gift we received from God, and the grace that is offered it is possible that we reject it and do what is objectively evil, sin is always a possibility in our lives.

    Pray for the canonization of the Servant of God Enrique Shaw

    O God, your servant Enrique was a joyful witness of Christian living through his everyday endeavors, with his family, at the workplace, in the corporate world and society at large. Help me to follow in his footsteps in deep communion with you. Glorify him and grant through his intercession the favors requested. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Our Father... Hail Mary... Glory be...

    Por favor, recen para que el Señor conceda un milagro por su intercesión

    Oh Dios, tu siervo Enrique nos dio un alegre ejemplo de vida cristiana a través de su quehacer cotidiano en la familia, el trabajo, la empresa y la sociedad. Ayúdame a seguir sus pasos con una profunda vida de unión contigo y de apostolado cristiano. Dígnate glorificarlo y concede por su intercesión el favor que te piden. Por Jesucristo nuestro Señor. Amén.
