2nd Sunday 25 February 2018 - Mc9, 1-9 Jesus is transfigured and we are invited to listen to his persecuted Son, Jesus. Listening to Jesus in daily life is not easy. We are surrounded by noises and distractions that prevent us from understanding the essentials.We are saturated with information and do not let us look into ourselves. "Let's make three tents" asks Pedro. He does not want to leave the one that is easy, comfortable and where he feels protected. Listening is painful because listening to the voice of the Father is to open oneself to listen to Jesus, to his Word, to his traveling protector. It is painful because it involves leaving oneself and welcoming the brother with tenderness and understanding. It is the time we open to listen to the Father in Jesus.

2º domingo 25 febrero 2018 - Mc9,1-9 Jesús se transfigura y ell padres nos invita a escuchar a su Hijo armado, Jesús. Escuchar a Jesús en la vida diaria no es fácil. Estamos rodeados de ruidos, de distracciones que vos impiden ir a lo essencial y a lo profunco. Nuestros aidos están saturados y esto va creando al interior de nosotros unacostraquenos ciega. "Hagamos tres tiendas" pide Pedro. No quiere salir de la que es fácil, cómodo y de donde se siente protegido. Escuchar es doloroso porque escuchar la voz del Padre es abrirme a escuchar a Jesús, a su Palabra, a su proyector de viada. Es doloroso porque implica dejar mi yo y, acoger al hermano can ternura y comprensión. Es el tiempode abrimos a escuchar al Padre en Jesûs.

2ème dimanche 25 février 2018 - C'est la fransfiguration de Jésus et les parents nous invitent à écouter son Fils armé, Jésus. Écouter Jésus dans la vie quotidienne n'est pas facile. Nous sommes entourés de bruits, de distractions qui vous empêchent d'aller à l'essentiel et au profond. Nos aides sont saturées et cela crée un aveuglement en nous. "Faisons trois tentes" demande Pedro. Il ne veut pas quitter celui qui est facile, confortable et où il se sent protégé. Écouter est douloureux car écouter la voix du Père, c'est nous permettre d'entendre Jésus, sa Parole, son project ambulant. C'est douloureux parce que cela implique de se quitter et d'accueillir le frère avec tendresse et compréhension. Il faut que nous écoutons le Père en Jésus.
