FRENTE A LA CRUZ | La esperanza en Dios aleja los sentimientos que nos abruman

Alguna vez se ha sentido descorazonado o abrumado por algo que tiene que hacer? Si es así, las lecturas de esta semana son para usted. Para comprender por qué, es necesario conocer el contexto de las lecturas.

Esta semana oiremos de Esdras, Ageo y Zacarías. Los tres vivieron y ejercieron su ministerio justo después del exilio a Babilonia- utilicemos el año 520 A.C. como fecha.

BEFORE THE CROSS | God’s hope chases away overwhelming feelings

Have you ever been discouraged or felt overwhelmed by something you had to do? If so, the readings this week are for you. But to understand why, it's necessary to know the context of the readings.

We hear this week from Ezra, Haggai and Zechariah. All three lived and ministered right after the Babylonian Exile — let's use 520 BC as a date.

Archbishop Carlson calls for peace after verdict

Archbishop Robert J. Carlson is calling for peace following a not guilty verdict in the trial of former St. Louis Police Officer Jason Stockley.

Stockley was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death in 2011 of Anthony Lamar Smith. St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson issued the ruling after Stockley waived his right to a jury trial.

Protesters began gathering in Downtown St. Louis soon after the ruling was made public on the morning of Sept. 15. Media reports had warned of threatened disruptions if Stockley was found not guilty.

FRENTE A LA CRUZ | En su tiempo San Pablo también contrarrestó “noticias falsas”

Las lecturas de la misa de esta semana son de la Primera Carta de San Pablo a Timoteo. San Pablo previene a Timoteo acerca de los gnósticos, un grupo de personas que decían tener un conocimiento especial contrario a la fe. Timoteo debía restringir sus falsas enseñanzas, y preservar la pureza de las enseñanzas de la Iglesia contra sus doctrinas.

Hoy en día, tenemos nuestra propia versión de esta situación.

BEFORE THE CROSS | St. Paul countered ‘fake news’ in his time, too

The Mass readings this week are from the First Letter of St. Paul to Timothy. St. Paul warned Timothy about the Gnostics, a group of people who claimed to have a special knowledge contrary to the faith. Timothy was to restrain their false teaching, and preserve the purity of Church teaching against their doctrines.

We have our own version of that situation today.
