Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, in the Gospel Reading for this weekend’s liturgy, Jesus teaches his disciples how to pray; he gives us the Lord’s prayer.

The first thing to notice about the Lord’s prayer is that it is full of petitions. The first petition is that God’s name would be hallowed. The second is that God’s kingdom would come. The third is that God would give us our daily bread. And so on.

The Lord’s prayer then is not just a litany of praise to God. It is not just an expression of a pious wish that God’s will be done. It is not only a surrender of one’s own will to God.

Just look at the request for daily bread. It presents to God what we want God to give us.

Having desires and presenting them to God are required by the Lord’s prayer.

The second thing to notice is that people do not generally get what they ask for. Ask and you will receive, the Lord says. But how many people around the world pray the Lord’s prayer and go without food that day? And food is only the beginning. In every mass we ask God for healing: “Only say the word and my soul shall be healed.” Then we lug our sinful, sick, and sorrowful souls around another day.

So here is the third thing to notice. Jesus does not promise that we will get the very thing we ask for. He says that if we ask, we will receive; but he does not happen to mention what we will receive.

If you think about it, you can see the point. If a sick person could heal himself, he would be the doctor, not the patient. The patient’s job is to want to get well. It is the doctor’s job to figure out how to get him well.

In the same way, the Lord’s prayer requires us to trust God enough to tell him what we want—over and over and over. Our job is to ask continually. God’s job is to figure out what to give us that will really fill us and heal us.

So, we might not get what we ask for. But as long as we keep asking, the Lord promises that we will receive—grace, pressed down, shaken together, running over, and gently given, from the God who loves us so much.

Queridos hermanos y hermanas en Cristo, en el Evangelio de la liturgia de este fin de semana, Jesús enseña a sus discípulos a rezar; nos da la oración del Señor, el ‘Padre Nuestro’.

Lo primero que hay que notar sobre la oración del Señor es que está llena de peticiones.

La primera petición es que el nombre de Dios sea santificado. La segunda es que vendría el reino de Dios. La tercera es que Dios nos daría nuestro pan de cada día. Y así.

La oración del Señor entonces no es solo una letanía de alabanza a Dios. No es solo una expresión de un deseo piadoso de que se haga la voluntad de Dios. No es sólo una entrega de la propia voluntad a Dios. Basta con mirar la solicitud de pan de cada día.

Presenta a Dios lo que queremos que Dios nos dé. Tener deseos y presentarlos a Dios son requeridos por la oración del Señor.

La segunda cosa para notar es que las personas generalmente no obtienen lo que piden.

Pide y recibirás, dice el Señor. Pero ¿cuántas personas en todo el mundo rezan el Padre Nuestro y se quedan sin comer ese día? Y la comida es sólo el comienzo. En cada misa le pedimos a Dios que nos cure: “Pero solo una palabra tuya bastará para sanarme”. Luego cargamos nuestras almas pecaminosas, enfermas y afligidas por otro día.

Así que aquí está la tercera cosa a notar. Jesús no promete que obtendremos exactamente lo que pedimos. Él dice que, si pedimos, recibiremos; pero no se le ocurre mencionar lo que recibiremos.

Si lo piensas, puedes ver el punto. Si un enfermo pudiera curarse a sí mismo, sería el médico, no el paciente. El trabajo del paciente es querer mejorar. Es el trabajo del médico descubrir cómo curarlo.

De la misma manera, la oración del Señor requiere que confiemos en Dios lo suficiente como para decirle lo que queremos, una y otra y otra vez. Nuestro trabajo es preguntar continuamente. El trabajo de Dios es buscar qué darnos que realmente nos llene y nos sane.

Por lo tanto, es posible que no obtengamos lo que pedimos. Pero mientras sigamos pidiendo, el Señor promete que recibiremos: gracia, apretada, remecida, rebosante y gentilmente dada, del Dios que nos ama tanto.

It may seem surprising, but many times we do not know how to pray. We don't know how to relate to our Heavenly Father. We tend to limit our prayer to a series of requests that occur to us: possible solutions to our problems or desires that arise in our hearts. But we ask, without really knowing what we should receive; which is the best for us. Frankly, many times, we do not know what is good for us. We seek, desire and expect things that do not contribute to our well-being.

Faced with the realization of what we do not know how to ask for, the disciples ask Jesus: "Lord, teach us to pray." And with those words they were asking Jesus to help them keep their life priorities in the right direction, the direction that leads to eternal life; to salvation.

Jesus teaches us the Our Father prayer to keep us going in the right direction as we relate to God the Father. It is from that correct relationship with the Father, from where we ask and receive, seek and find, touch and it opens to us.

In the first reading, Abraham shows us how that relationship works. Before the pending trial of Sodom and Gomorrah, Abraham asks the Lord: Is it possible for you to destroy the innocent along with the guilty?

It sounds as if Abraham is more merciful and compassionate than God himself. Abraham says to him: The judge of the whole world will not do justice? And Abraham is right to question God, because Abraham intimately knows the Lord and knows how and who he is.

Abraham's relationship with God was such that Abraham was reflecting the attributes of God himself:

compassion, mercy, justice. If Abraham asks for this compassion, mercy and justice, it is because he is sure that God is all these things.

Abraham, based on this knowledge, makes reference to who God is. God wants us to make judgments and decisions as we evaluate our life and life's challenges, looking like Him. When we make our judgments and fight for our causes: Do we make sure we don't destroy the innocent along with the guilty? Through the Our Father, we show our “faith in the power of God” and our desire to be more like Him every day.

Let us reflect in prayer and when you pray, say:

"Father, hallowed be your name,"

You are our origin and our destiny. Our example to follow. We thank and praise you for your presence in our lives.

“thy kingdom come,”

You know what is best for our lives. Queen and guide our lives, may your will be fulfilled and not ours.

"Give us today our daily bread"

You are our need and the source of satiety of our lives. We ask you to assist us and cover every need of our lives and that we do not lack what is necessary.

“and forgive us our trespasses, since we also forgive everyone who trespasses against us,”

Let us remember our sin and the damage it does. Allow us to recognize our faults and imperfections, to cry out for forgiveness and most importantly to grow in our ability to forgive others.

"And lead us not into temptation."

We ask that you allow us to always be close to You and that we recognize our need for You, so that we never want to live without separating from You. Amen.

Puede parecer sorpresa, pero muchas veces no sabemos orar. No sabemos cómo relacionarnos con nuestro Padre Celestial. Solemos limitar nuestra oración a una serie de peticiones que se nos ocurren: posibles soluciones a nuestros problemas o deseos que surgen en nuestro corazón. Pero pedimos, sin saber realmente que es lo que debemos recibir; que es lo mejor para nosotros. Francamente, muchas veces, no sabemos lo que nos conviene. Buscamos, deseamos y esperamos cosas que no contribuyen a nuestro bienestar.

Ante la realización de lo que no sabemos pedir es que los discípulos le piden a Jesús: “Señor, enséñanos a orar”. Y con esas palabras le estaban pidiendo a Jesús, ayudarles a mantener las prioridades de vida en la dirección correcta, la dirección que lleve a la vida eterna; a la salvación.

Jesús nos enseña la oración del Padre Nuestro para mantenernos en la dirección correcta, mientras nos relacionamos con Dios Padre. Es desde esa relación correcta con el Padre, de donde pedimos y recibimos, buscamos y encontramos, tocamos y se nos abre.

En la primera lectura, Abraham nos muestra cómo funciona esa relación. Ante el juicio pendiente de Sodoma y Gomorra, Abraham le pregunta al Señor: ¿Será posible que tú destruyas al inocente junto con el culpable?

Suena como si Abraham fuera más misericordioso y compasivo que Dios mismo. Abraham le dice: El juez de todo el mundo ¿no hará justicia? Y Abraham tiene razón en cuestionar a Dios, porque Abraham conoce íntimamente al Señor y sabe cómo y quién es.

La relación de Abraham con Dios era tal que Abraham estaba reflejando los atributos de Dios mismo: La compasión, la misericordia, la justicia. Si Abraham pide esta compasión, misericordia y justicia, es porque está seguro que Dios es todas estas cosas.

Abraham, basado en este conocimiento, hace referencia de quien Dios es. Dios desea que, al evaluar nuestra vida y los retos de nuestra vida, emitamos juicios y decisiones, pareciéndonos a Él. Cuando emitimos nuestros juicios y luchamos por nuestras causas: ¿Nos aseguramos de no destruir al inocente junto al culpable? A través del Padre Nuestro, mostramos nuestra “fe en el poder de Dios” y nuestro deseo de, cada día más, parecernos a Él.

Reflexionemos en la oración y cuando oren, digan:

“Padre, santificado sea tu nombre,”

Eres nuestro origen y nuestro destino. Nuestro ejemplo a seguir. Te agradecemos y alabamos por tu presencia en nuestras vidas.

“venga tu Reino,”

Sabes lo que es mejor para nuestras vidas. Reina y guía nuestras vidas, que tu voluntad se cumpla y no la nuestra.

“danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día”

Eres nuestra necesidad y la fuente de saciedad de nuestras vidas. Te pedimos que nos asistas y cubras cada necesidad de nuestras vidas y que no nos falte lo necesario.

“y perdona nuestras ofensas, puesto que también nosotros perdonamos a todo aquel que nos ofende,”

Permítenos recordar nuestro pecado y el daño que hace. Permítenos reconocer nuestras faltas e imperfección, para clamar por perdón y aún más importante para crecer en nuestra capacidad de perdonar a otros.

“y no nos dejes caer en tentación' ".

Pedimos que nos permitas estar siempre cerca de Ti y que reconozcamos nuestra necesidad de Ti, para nunca querer vivir sin apartarnos de Ti. Amén.

ARTICLE

Preventing heatstroke in hot cars As temperatures heat up this summer, it is critical for parents to remember to take children out of the car every time they park and turn off the engine. Leaving a child alone

in a car can lead to serious injury or death.

This is especially true in hot weather: a car can heat up 19 degrees in just 10 minutes.

Cracking a window is not enough to solve the problem. Leaving a purse or phone — or even a shoe — in the backseat can be a reminder

about children who may fall asleep on car rides. For more information, visit https://www.safekids.org/heatstroke.

Articulo de Salvaguardando a los Niños

Prevención de golpe de calor en autos calientes

A medida que aumentan las temperaturas este verano, es fundamental que los padres de

familia recuerden sacar a los niños del automóvil cada vez que se estacionan y apagan el motor. Dejar a un niño solo en un automóvil puede provocar lesiones graves o la muerte. Esto es especialmente cierto en climas

cálidos: un automóvil puede calentarse 19 grados en solo 10 minutos. Romper una

ventana no es suficiente para resolver el problema. Dejar una cartera o un teléfono, o incluso un zapato en el asiento trasero, puede

ser un recordatorio de que los niños podrían haberse quedado dormidos en los

viajes en automóvil. Para obtener más información, visite
