CATECHETICAL CORNER
This is the Faith by Canon Francis Ripley
ANGOLO CATECHETICO
Questa è la Fede dal Canonico Francesco Ripley
“The Fifth Commandment”
"Il Quinto Comandamento"
3
The Fifth Commandment forbids:
Il Quinto Comandamento proibisce :
f) Quarreling, which tends toward fighting and even murder;
f) Il litigare, che tende verso la lotta e persino omicidi;
g) Injurious words, which lead to quarrels and their
consequences. “Whoever shall say, You Fool, shall be in
danger of hell fire.” (Matt 5:22)
g) Le parole ingiuriose, che portano a liti e le loro
conseguenze. "Chiunque dirà, pazzo, sono in pericolo del
fuoco dell'inferno”. (Mt 5,22).
h) Scandal, which is any word, deed or omission, wrong or
seeming to be wrong, and leading others to sin. Those who
give bad example to those under them, such as parents who
curse and quarrel before their children, those who by their
behavior teach or suggest evil, those who ridicule piety in
others, those who counsel others to do evil, and those who
provoke others to sin are guilty of malicious scandal. Another
name for it is “soul murder.” What a terrible sin! Even
murder of the body is one of the sins mentioned in the Bible as
“crying to Heaven for vengeance.” Scandal is undoing the
work of Christ, who came to save all men, and doing the work
of the devil. “Woe to the world because of scandals,” said
Our Lord, and “he that shall scandalize one of these little ones
that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone
should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be
drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Matt 18:7). Often, illinstructed people take scandal from even lawful things; hence,
particular care is necessary when this danger is present.
h) Lo scandalo, che è una parola, azione o omissione,
sbagliato o che sembra essere sbagliato, e porta altri al
peccato. Coloro che danno cattivo esempio a quelli sotto di
loro, come i genitori che maledicono e litigano davanti ai loro
figli, quelli che con il loro comportamento insegnano o
suggeriscono male, quelli che mettono in ridicolo la pietà
negli altri, quelli che consigliano ad altri di fare il male, e
quelli che provocano altri al peccato sono colpevoli di
scandalo dannoso. Un’ altro nome è " omicidio dell’anima".
Che peccato terribile! Anche l'omicidio del corpo è uno dei
peccati menzionati nella Bibbia come "piange vendetta al
Cielo". Lo scandalo è il disfare dell'opera di Cristo, che è
venuto per salvare tutti gli uomini, e fare il lavoro del diavolo.
"Guai al mondo per gli scandali", ha detto Nostro Signore, e
"colui che avrà scandalizzato uno di questi piccoli che credono
in Me, sarebbe meglio per lui che una macina da mulino
sarebbe appesa al collo, e che sarebbe annegato nelle
profondità del mare". (Matt 18:7). Spesso persone mal istruiti
prendono scandalo anche da le cose lecite, quindi, particolare
attenzione è necessaria quando questo pericolo è presente.
Meditazione per la Quaresima
Suor Ruth Burrows, O.C.D.
I nostri cuori vanno sempre chiedendo: “Che altro, Signore?
Cosa vuoi da me? Che cosa è manca ancora? Fammi vedere
tutto ciò che impedisce il Tuo amore nel pieno ambito in me.
Fammi vedere. Aiutami a vedere la mostra. Aiutami a sentire
la risposta alla domanda: 'che cosa ancora’”?
Che cosa chiede il Signore, ciò che Egli si rese conto era così
amaramente difficile per il cuore umano, è stata la
“conversione”: che accettando di voltarsi a destra, ad essere
srotolata dalla padronanza di sé, l’egocentrismo, e dall’ autoorientamento che è la nostra condizione nativa, di diventare
posseduto da Dio, centrato su Dio, direttato a Dio. È ciò che
Egli intende diventando un piccolo, un bambino, che solo è in
grado di ricevere il regno, di conoscere i misteri del regno.
Questo facendo di nuovo è opera esclusiva di Dio. Ma
dobbiamo accettare il Suo lavoro, dobbiamo permettere che la
Sua mano divina prende possesso di noi e ci formarci nella
vera forma. E noi resistiamo con tutte le nostre forze. Egli sa
che solo quando siamo così ri-formati possiamo essere
veramente felici. La nostra miseria nasce dal nostro
egocentrismo. La gioia e la libertà sono in possesso di Dio.
“Ah, se solo tu sapessi che cosa è per la vostra pace”! (Lc
19:42).
Vediamo quindi di aprire i nostri cuori a Dio che il Suo
Spirito possa prendere possesso di noi e il sogno di Dio può
diventare una realtà nella nostra vita – il sogno della nostra
vocazione – Dio solo.
Lenten Meditation
Sister Ruth Burrows, O.C.D.
Our hearts should be always be asking, “What more, Lord?
What do you want of me? What is still wanting? Show me
anything that is preventing Your love having full scope in
me. Show me. Help me to see the showing. Help me to
hear the answer to the question: ‘what still?’”
What our Lord asks, what He realized was so bitterly hard
for the human heart, was “conversion”: that accepting to turn
right round, to be uncoiled from the self-possession, selfcenteredness, and self-orientation that is our native
condition, to become God-possessed, God-centered, Goddirected. It is what He means by becoming a little one, a
child, who alone is capable of receiving the kingdom, of
knowing the mysteries of the kingdom. This re-making is
God’s exclusive work. But we must accept His work, we
must allow His divine hand to take hold of us and wrench us
into true shape. And we resist with all our might. He knows
that only when we are thus re-shaped can we be truly happy.
Our misery springs from our self-centeredness. Joy and
freedom are in God’s possession. “Ah, if only you knew
what is for your peace!” (Lk 19:42).
Let us then open our hearts to God that His Spirit may take
possession of us and the dream of God become a reality in
our lives—the dream of our vocation—God alone.

LECCIONES DE CATECISMO
Esta es la Fe por el canónigo Francisco Ripley
“El Quinto Mandamiento”
El Quinto Mandamiento prohíbe:
f) Discutir, que tiende a la lucha e incluso el asesinato;
g) Palabras lastimeras, que conducen a peleas y sus
consecuencias. “Cualquiera que diga: Necio, quedará expuesto
al infierno de fuego”. (Mateo 5:22).
h) Escándalo, que es cualquier palabra, obra u omisión,
equivocada o que parecía estar mal, y guiar a otros al pecado.
Los que dan mal ejemplo a sus súbditos, como los padres que
maldicen y se pelean delante de sus hijos, para los que con su
comportamiento sugieren el mal, los que ridiculizan la piedad
de los demás, los que aconsejan a otros a hacer lo malo, y los
que provocan a otros al pecado son culpables del escándalo
malicioso. Otro nombre para él es “asesino del alma”. ¡Qué
terrible pecado! Incluso el asesinato del cuerpo es uno de los
pecados mencionados en la Biblia como “llorar al Cielo por
venganza”. Escándalo es perder la obra de Cristo, que vino
para salvar a todos los hombres, y hacer el trabajo del diablo.
“¡Ay del mundo por los escándalos”, dijo Nuestro Señor, y “el
que escandalice a uno de estos pequeñitos que creen en mí,
más le vale colgarse una piedra de molino al cuello, y ser
arrojado en lo profundo del mar”! (Mateo 18:7). A menudo las
personas instruidas escandalizan incluso de las cosas legales,
por lo que hay que cuidarse especialmente cuando el peligro
está presente.
Meditación de Cuaresma
Hermana Ruth Burrows, O.C.D.
Nuestros corazones siempre están preguntando, “¿Qué más,
Señor? ¿Qué es lo que quieres de mí? que es lo que esperas?
Muéstrame lo que impide descubrir tu amor en mí.
Enséñame. Ayúdame a descubrir tu enseñanza. Ayúdame a
oír la respuesta a la pregunta: ‘¿calladamente’”?
Que es lo que nuestro Señor pide, lo que se dio cuenta es tan
amargo y difícil para el corazón del hombre, fue la
“conversión”: el aceptar dar la vuelta a la derecha, que se
desenrolla desde el dominio de sí mismo, el egocentrismo y
la auto-orientación que es nuestra nativa condición, para ser
poseídos por Dios, centrado en Dios, dirigida por Dios. Es lo
que quiere decir al convertirse en un pequeño, un niño, el
único que es capaz de recibir el reino, de conocer los
misterios del reino. Este re- hacer es obra exclusiva de Dios.
Pero debemos aceptar su trabajo, debemos permitir que su
mano divina se apodere de nosotros y nos haga verdadera
arcilla. Y nosotros nos oponemos con todas nuestras fuerzas.
Él sabe que sólo cuando estemos re-formados seremos
verdaderamente felices. Nuestra miseria brota de nuestro
egocentrismo. La alegría y la libertad están en la posesión de
Dios. “¡Ah, si supieras lo que es para tu paz!”(Lc 19:42 ).
Vamos ahora, abrir el corazón a Dios que Su Espíritu pueda
tomar posesión de nosotros y el sueño de Dios sea una
realidad en nuestras vidas, el sueño de nuestra vocación -solo por Dios.
