Father's Weekly Reflection
18TH SUNDAY OF ORDINARY TIME
I want to thank Fr. Alfredo Lopez (Food for the Poor) for sharing his time, his ministry, and pastoral experience in serving those most in need. Certainly, the issue of the poor is not only a social issue but rather a fundamental and very concrete action, according to the perspective of Christ. Christ has made it clear to us that in those most in need is the visible and human Kingdom of God.
After the multiplication of the loaves, Jesus sees that people follow Him with more intensity. Many more people came the second day and reaped from the Master. Christ realizes what happened and takes the opportunity to teach them that materials things do not have to be the motivation to follow Him, it is not about the food, but rather the love for Him.
In serving and loving the poor, it is the most concrete way of showing God’s love to all. Jesus loves everyone, but it is clear that there was a preference for the poor, children, and orphans. Today, with the presence of Fr. Alfredo, and “Food for the Poor”, there is the opportunity, once again to share the joy and the gifts we have received from God with the less fortunate.
Thank you for your generosity and really always sharing a lot or a little with others. May your sharing with those most in need be motivated by the love you have for Christ and His Church!
Pastor. Adrián Vázquez
