Legitimate violence

Written by P. Alfonso Gálvez on .

 

The Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force

 

The Word of God is spirit and life. Jesus Christ said, speaking of Himself: The words that I have spoken to you, they are spirit, and they are life.[1] Therefore, they are profound and, as they are living, always updated. It is no wonder, then, that man is capable of delving into them in order to enrich himself spiritually; but he can never hope to exhaust their meaning.

An illuminating example—among many others— are these words of the Master:

The Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.[2]

It is evident that such words, like all those of Jesus Christ, contain abundant doctrine. In any case, they seem to be surrounded by an air of mystery (which is simply to say the depth of the content revealed), for who can say that he has succeeded, after so many centuries, in unraveling all the inexhaustible and mysterious meanings of His words? … Unless someone takes seriously the words of the new Superior General of the Jesuits, according to whom, Jesus Christ must be reinterpreted. But jokes should be relegated to their proper place and their own moment, and certainly they are not useful in solving serious issues.

The worshipers of the god Mammon (I)

Written by P. Alfonso Gálvez on .

 

You cannot serve God and mammon

When man refuses to worship God, he immediately begins to worship idols. And perhaps the most important of all those idols is the god Mammon, the one that embodies the riches and things of this world.

And idolatry, like any other sin (though most especially this particular sin) evokes the most dreadful contempt for the simple reason that idolatry somehow demands that the worshiper kneel before the idol. And when the idol is the subject of absolute worship, as happens in certain cults, its worshiping also includes kneeling until one’s head touches the ground; which requires in the worshiper what some well-intentioned observer would describe as a predisposition to showing one’s backside and what other ill-intentioned bystanders might consider as a pose in which it is necessary to raise one’s rear end.

Reseña del libro 

El libro se presenta como un conjunto de sermones, escritos sobre la base de algunas homilías pronunciadas, en principio, para un público bien intencionado. Pero en realidad lo que se ha conseguido es una serie de meditaciones muy profundas dirigidas a los hombres de una Iglesia y un mundo "en ocaso", esto es, en tiempos que el autor ha descrito como de "la gran apostasía" y de una "Iglesia catacumbal", en un momento de "invierno eclesial", donde aparece casi naturalmente la pregunta sobre el final de los tiempos. Situación que presenta, ya desde el inicio, una aporía: ¿Tiene sentido predicar en tal medio ambiente, donde nadie parece tener intención de escuchar, o van a estar prontos a rechazar el mensaje? Sin embargo, no importa que, aparentemente, el intento pueda parecer inútil, pues el verdadero predicador cristiano sabe que es depositario de una misión, de un mandato, recibido del mismo Señor; y es consciente del efecto "devastador" de la misma Palabra de Dios, más allá de la disposición de los oyentes a la que va dirigida.
