Refletindo o Evangelho
"Wise and understood" are powerful leaders, who refuse to recognize the ways of God. They are not humble, no respect for God. Are insensitive to the revelation of God and defenders of their own interests. Not willing to hear and practice the teachings of Jesus. They are self-reliant. The term "little people" refers to the small community of disciples who had answered the call of Jesus (the Group of apostles); but, in General, applies to all hosting the saving presence of Jesus and your Kingdom. Jesus promises relief to tired and oppressed. Are overwhelmed by life under the control of the leaders of the people and their heavy political, social and economic structures. Take the "soft" yoke of Jesus is to accept your Kingdom, seated about justice.
Senhor, vós me sondais e conheceis, † sabeis quando me sento ou me levanto; de longe penetrais meus pensamentos; percebeis quando me deito e quando eu ando, os meus caminhos vos são todos conhecidos. Fostes vós que me formastes as entranhas, e no seio de minha mãe vós me tecestes. Eu vos louvo e vos dou graças, ó Senhor, porque de modo admirável me formastes! Até o mais íntimo, Senhor, me conheceis; nenhuma sequer de minhas fibras ignoráveis quando eu era modelado ocultamente, era formado nas entranhas subterrâneas.
Lord, you sondais me and know, † you know when I sit down or get up; by far my penetrais thoughts; you see when I go to bed and when I walk, my ways are all known. You formastes me the entrails, and within my mother tecestes me. I praise you and give you thanks, o Lord, why so admirable formastes me! Even the most intimate, Sir, know me; None of my bypass fibers when I was modeled was secretly formed in the bowels. (Psalm 138/139).
Traçando o sinal da cruz em seu/ua filho/a: Abençoe a você (nome do filho/a), nosso Deus que é † Pai, Filho e Espírito Santo, para que você filho/a viva sempre no amor de Deus e fazendo só o bem a todos. Amém!
By tracing the sign of the cross in you say: Bless me Lord God that is † father, son, and holy spirit, to live always in your love and doing good to all. Amen!
By tracing the sign of the cross on your son/daughter/au: Bless you (name of child), our God who is † father, son, and holy spirit, for you child alive always in love of God and doing good to all. Amen!
