LA RISA ES SALUD: Una mujer acude al médico con el fin de que le recomiende algo para adelgazar. El consultado va y
le dice:
- Es muy simple, señora. Sólo tiene que mover la cabeza de izquierda a derecha y viceversa.
- ¿Cuántas veces?.

COMPARTIENDO EL EVANGELIO
San Marcos (12,38-44):
Queridos hermanos, así termina el evangelio de este domingo: «Os aseguro que esa pobre viuda ha echado en el
arca de las ofrendas más que nadie. Porque los demás han echado de lo que les sobra, pero ésta, que pasa
necesidad, ha echado todo lo que tenía para vivir.»
La Palabra nos cuestiona acerca del valor de la humildad, actitud que nos permite tener en alta estima a los otros
antes que creernos más que los demás.
El ejemplo de la mujer que ofrenda lo poco que tiene de una forma silenciosa agrada más a Dios que la actitud de
los ricos que daban su ofrenda haciendo gran ruido y alardeando.
Este texto podemos relacionarlo con la bienaventuranza que dice: “Felices los pobres de espíritu, porque de ellos
es el reino de los cielos”. La pobreza en sentido bíblico es la capacidad de donarse, de estar desprendido, de
reconocer que nuestra única riqueza es Dios.
Que tan generoso o ambicioso eres? Compartes con tu iglesia lo poco que tienes, o no ofrendas nada porque
piensas que como eres pobre eso no aplica para ti?. No olvides que se trata de compartir lo poco o mucho que
tengamos y que tu mano derecha no sepa lo que hace tu mano izquierda.
Oración: Señor, lléname de la fuerza de tu Espíritu Santo, para que pueda liberarme de mis egoísmos y salir al
encuentro de mis hermanos que necesitan ser amados y reconocidos en su dignidad. Amen.
Que tengas buena semana.
ATENCION PAPAS Y MAMAS
Diversos estudios científicos enfocados en analizar los efectos que tienen los dispositivos electrónicos en
los cerebros de los menores de edad, han demostrado que su uso prolongado provoca daños importantes
en su desarrollo.
Al concentrarse tanto en lo que tienen en la pantalla, los pequeños pierden interés en las interacciones
humanas, así como en la exploración del mundo que los rodea. Todo el tiempo que dedica un niño al uso de smartphones,
tabletas y videojuegos, los aleja de aprender cosas nuevas a través de juguetes didácticos que fomenten el desarrollo de sus ca-
pacidades cognitivas, intelectuales y motrices.
ACTIVIDADES PARA CRECER ESPIRITUALMENTE
1. El próximo Sábado después de la Eucaristía tenemos la Adoración ante Jesús Sacramentado.
2. El tercer martes de cada mes a las 7pm estas invitado a participar de la Hora Santa, un espacio de encuentro con Jesús,
ven y trae tus intenciones. Saldrás muy fortalecido.
3. Para quienes solicitan el bautismo para sus hijos, es importante tener en cuenta que los padrinos deben ser personas que
tengan un vivencia de fe que sean personas de testimonio y que hayan recibido los sacramentos. Antes de elegir padri-
nos asegúrese de que cumple estos requisitos.
O Evangelho deste Domingo.JESUS E OS
MESTRES DA LEI (Mc 12,38-44)
Diz-nos que os escribas e fariseus fazem
ostentação da sua suposta bondade. Dão
esmolas, tocando a campainha; rezam no templo
à frente e em tom de grandiosidade; ocupam os
primeiros lugares, etc.Acautelai-vos dos escribas.
Eles gostam de passear com longas vestes e de
receber cumprimentos nas praças. Querem os
primeiros assentos nas sinagogas e os primeiros
lugares nos banquetes.Logo a seguir, S. Marcos
conta-nos a história da viúva que, dando a mais
pequena das moedas, dava tudo quanto tinha. Foi
uma atitude que Jesus apreciou e dela fez o elogio
aos seus discípulos. A esmola da viúva, modesta
no seu valor, foi a de maior significado. A Miser-
icórdia é uma virtude moral pela qual uma pessoa
se dedica à outra com compaixão, dando ajuda
espiritual e material na medida das suas posses.O
mérito não está na grandeza ou pequenez da
nossa oferta à Deus. Mas sim em como o
fazemos.Jesus sabe daquilo que eu e você
podemos doar. Ele acredita no meu e no teu
potencial e preparou muitas coisas que somente
eu e você pode resolver. Mas eu e você ainda não
demos tudo o que podíamos e por isso continua-
mos amarrados, muitas vezes infelizes. Não se-
jamos egoístas, mas generosos. Diga o teu sim e
dê tudo àquilo que você pode e deve dar. Siga o
exemplo da viúva e veja como ela agradou a
Deus. Se assim fizeres também a tua oferta será
agradável a Deus! Senhor Jesus, dá-me pureza
de coração, para que todas as minhas ações
sejam marcadas pela sinceridade e por um amor
verdadeiro ao Pai.
