Reflection of the Week
Today’s Gospel from the Book of Matthew again includes parables. We have been hearing the Lord share parables with us throughout our readings in recent weeks. Interestingly Matthew contains 23 parables (or teachings classified as parables), while Luke has 28. Mark has only nine, and John has none.
The first parable we hear today is called The Parable of the Wedding Feast. In this story shared by Jesus for our benefit a king is hosting a wedding feast for his son. He sends out invitations and people ignore them or choose not to respond. It may seem somewhat remarkable to us that people turn down an invitation to a royal wedding feast.
Yet, the Lord invites us to join Him on a regular basis through Holy Scripture and the Sacraments. Many ignore the invitation, and in most cases are not even aware of the fact they have received it. Those who read this are aware of the invitation. The question is “How do we respond?”
What do we do after we attend a Holy Mass? What is our reaction to the reception of Christ’s incredible gift in the Eucharist? We may not make light of it like some of the people in the parable, but if we merely go our separate ways, and do not strive to be active disciples, we are basically doing the same thing as those Jesus describes in this parable. In one of his first appearances Pope Francis declared, “Go make disciples of all nations.” We cannot make disciples unless we are ourselves disciples.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
In 1971, the Vatican Congregation for Divine Worship completed a survey of the presidents of the national liturgical commissions around the world. How were children doing in the liturgical reform? Probably to their surprise, the cardinals learned of special weekday Masses for children designed to teach them how to participate on Sunday, Masses with separate components for children. The decision was made quickly to develop adaptations for Masses where children were a majority of the assembly. Changes would include a simpler structure, understandable texts, a simplified Lectionary, more active participation, and most surprisingly, new Eucharistic Prayers. By 1973 the work was done, and with very specific advice from Pope Paul VI, including the need for two new
Eucharistic Prayers, the Directory for Masses with
Children was published on December 20, a timely
Christmas gift for the children of the world. The prayers are the first to be written fresh in a modern language—not Latin, but French and German—then translated into English, Italian, and Spanish. With a sense of caution, these new prayers were approved for three years, until 1977, but it soon became apparent that they had truly been embraced.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
En 2006, en la plaza de Taos se erigió una estatua de bronce que conmemora al “cura de Taos”, Antonio José Martínez, un sacerdote recordado como controversial ante varios gobiernos por defender a su pueblo.
Él fue sacerdote en Taos, Nuevo México cuando era territorio español, luego mexicano y finalmente cuando pasa a manos de EE. UU. Durante la época española y mexicana Antonio estableció escuelas para niños y niñas y fundó un seminario para preparar un clero nativo. En 1830 empezó a imprimir libros y estableció el primer periódico Nuevo Mexicano. De esta manera estableció Taos como un centro de educación.
En 1851 llegaron los representantes del gobierno estadounidense con la intención de “americanizar” a los nuevos mexicanos prohibiéndoles sus tradiciones declarando que eran ignorantes y supersticiosas.
Antonio José contradijo este movimiento convirtiendo su seminario en una escuela de leyes. Decía que el
gobierno de EE. UU es un burro que debe ser montado por abogados. Muchos se opusieron a su obra pero él continuó luchando por su pueblo hasta su muerte en 1867. Su tumba lo declara: “La honra de su país”.
