Reflection of the Week
The purpose of Sacred Scripture is in part to teach us about the faith, to provide to us what the Church calls “divine revelation.” Our Second Reading from the Book of Revelation provides insights of which we need to be aware. The name of this Book – Revelation – is derived from the very first words of the Book, which are “The revelation of Jesus Christ…”
Written in Greek, the word translated as “revelation” is apokalypsis, meaning “unveiling” or indeed “revelation.” As indicated in today’s reading this book is written by “John…on the island called Patmos.” Our Catholic tradition tells us that this is John the Apostle, although scholars sometimes disagree with that assessment and conclusion. We do nonetheless know what and where Patmos is.
The Island of Patmos was the Roman Empire’s version of Alcatraz Island, a place where some were exiled and forced to work in the marble quarries found there. Ten miles long and six miles wide, Patmos has been described as lonely and desolate. Yet for John, the writer of this Book, it does not separate him from God or from his fellow Christians. He describes in today’s narrative the revelation which came to him there, but to experience such a revelation he had to be aware and open to the Words of the Lord.
We may at times feel just as exiled, just as lonely, but if we remain open and conscious of God’s presence, we, too may find solace and comfort and instructions. That is what being a steward is all about — being attentive to what God is saying to us.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
We return to our reflections on the rites of marriage with a brief consideration of reforms from the Council of Trent. When the Protestant Reformation took hold, the fairly recent achievements of the Church in regard to the sacrament of marriage were reviewed with a critical, reforming eye. In general, Protestants returned to an earlier view that marriage was a civil matter, although some said that the civil society had to be in harmony with Christian teaching. In the Catholic Church, the Council of Trent took the question up in 1563, and decided to shore up its teaching on the sacramentality of marriage. They identified many threats to this, including secret marriages and easy divorce. So they enacted laws that still govern our practice today: to be valid, marriage consent must be exchanged in the presence of a priest and two witnesses. Ever since Trent, marriages must also be announced three weeks in advance to the community, and recorded in a register. In some places in the world, the “banns” are still posted in the public square. In the United States, parishes sometimes publish the “banns” in the bulletin.
Anyone who has ever watched a soap opera has seen the standard scene of a minister announcing gravely, “If there is anyone here present who sees any reason why these two should not be married . . .” This bit of drama has no place in the Catholic liturgy, but survives among Protestants who broke with us before Trent edited this cliff-hanger out of our public prayer.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
La Iglesia católica es universal, extendida en diversas naciones y culturas. A través de los siglos estas culturas han enriquecido la Tradición de la Iglesia con muchas tradiciones y devociones que van más allá de su cultura de origen. La fiesta de la Divina Misericordia es un buen ejemplo. Viene de una devoción que nació en Polonia con la Hermana Faustina Kowalska (1905-1938) canonizada en el 2000.
La devoción a la Divina Misericordia se celebra el Segundo Domingo de Pascua y durante todo el año orando la Coronilla de la Divina Misericordia. En latinoamérica se ha ido extendiendo esta devoción desde 1978 cuando fue aprobada por el Papa Paulo VI. En todas partes se puede encontrar la imagen de la Divina Misericordia, Jesús de pie con rayos rojos y blanco-azules que brillan desde su corazón hacia el mundo. Lleva el lema: Jesús, confío en ti.
La finalidad de esta devoción es recordar al pecador que la misericordia de Dios es infinita e inagotable. Es una misericordia que debemos imitar para que la paz pueda reinar en nuestros corazones y en nuestra tierra.
