The Wall Street Journal stated falsely that I said to them “I have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un” (of N. Korea). Obviously I didn’t say that. I said “I’d have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un,” a big difference. Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters…

Din Evanghelia după Ioan (Ioan 1, 35-42)

Duminica de Ordinară
Din Evanghelia după Ioan (Ioan 1, 35-42)
În acel timp, Ioan stătea cu doi dintre discipolii săi și, îndreptându-și privirea asupra lui Isus, a spus: “Iată Mielul lui Dumnezeu!” Și cei doi discipoli ai lui, auzind-l vorbind astfel, au urmat pe Isus. Isus sa întors și, observând că îl urmau, le-a spus: “Ce cauți?” Ei au răspuns: “Rabi – care, tradus, înseamnă stăpân – unde locuiți?” El le-a spus: “Vino și vezi!” Au plecat și au văzut unde locuia și în ziua aceea au rămas cu el; era cam la ora patru după-amiaza. Unul dintre cei care au auzit cuvintele lui Giovanni și l-au urmat a fost Andrea, fratele lui Simon Pietro. El ia întâlnit pe fratele său Simon și ia spus: “Noi l-am găsit pe Mesia” – care îl traduce pe Hristos – și l-au condus la Isus. Isus a zis: “Tu ești Simon, fiul lui Ioan; vei fi numit Cefa »- ceea ce înseamnă Peter.
În fiecare zi întâlnim sute de priviri, ni se adresează zeci de întrebări, ne întâlnim sute de oameni .. dar foarte puțini, în decursul unei vieți, acele priviri, acele întrebări, acele întâlniri care dau sens vieții și ne dau ceea ce avem cu adevărat nevoie, adică viața și afecțiunea reală. Aspectul, acea întâlnire și acea întrebare pe care Isus o face acelor doi tineri ucenici ai lui Ioan Botezătorul și-au supărat viața. Astăzi Domnul se întoarce, se uită la tine și vă întreabă: “Ce căutați?” … ne privește cu ochii pe noi și ne cere să săpăm în nevoia noastră cea mai autentică și cea mai mare. De aici începe ucenicia … de la nevoia noastră de viață. Iar răspunsul celor doi tineri este fantastic pentru simplitate și profunzime: “Unde locuiți?”. Pentru că toți avem nevoie de o casă, pentru că acasă înseamnă viață și iubire împărtășită. Numai în Isus putem să ne simțim cu adevărat acasă, numai El ne poate cunoaște cu adevărat nevoile și ne poate primi bine așa cum suntem noi! Duminica bună cu Isus.

II Sunday of Ordinary Time

From the Gospel according to John (Jn 1, 35-42)

At that time John stood with two of his disciples and, fixing his gaze on the passing Jesus, said: “Behold the Lamb of God!” And his two disciples, hearing him speak like this, followed Jesus. Jesus then turned and, observing that they were following him, said to them: “What are you looking for?” They replied: “Rabbi – which, translated, means master -, where do you live?” He said to them, “Come and see.” So they went and saw where he was staying and that day they stayed with him; it was about four o’clock in the afternoon. One of the two who had heard Giovanni’s words and followed him was Andrea, brother of Simon Pietro. He first met his brother Simon and said to him: “We have found the Messiah” – which translates Christ – and led him to Jesus. Fixing his gaze on him, Jesus said: “You are Simon, the son of John; you will be called Cefa »- which means Peter.
Every day we meet hundreds of looks, we are asked dozens of questions, we meet hundreds of people .. but very few, in the span of a lifetime, those looks, those questions, those meetings that give meaning to life and give us what we really need, that is, real life and affection. That look, that meeting and that question that Jesus does to those two young disciples of John the Baptist have really upset their lives. Today the Lord turns around, looks at you and asks you: “What are you looking for?” … he stares at us and asks us to dig into our most authentic and great need. From here begins the discipleship … from our need for life. And the response of those two young people is fantastic for simplicity and depth: “Where do you live?”. Because we all need a home, because home means shared life and love. Only in Jesus can we truly feel at home, only He can really know our needs and welcome us as we are! Good Sunday with Jesus.

II Domenica del Tempo Ordinario
Dal Vangelo secondo Giovanni (Gv1,35-42)
In quel tempo Giovanni stava con due dei suoi discepoli e, fissando lo sguardo su Gesù che passava, disse: «Ecco l’agnello di Dio!». E i suoi due discepoli, sentendolo parlare così, seguirono Gesù. Gesù allora si voltò e, osservando che essi lo seguivano, disse loro: «Che cosa cercate?». Gli risposero: «Rabbì – che, tradotto, significa maestro -, dove dimori?». Disse loro: «Venite e vedrete». Andarono dunque e videro dove egli dimorava e quel giorno rimasero con lui; erano circa le quattro del pomeriggio. Uno dei due che avevano udito le parole di Giovanni e lo avevano seguito, era Andrea, fratello di Simon Pietro. Egli incontrò per primo suo fratello Simone e gli disse: «Abbiamo trovato il Messia» – che si traduce Cristo – e lo condusse da Gesù. Fissando lo sguardo su di lui, Gesù disse: «Tu sei Simone, il figlio di Giovanni; sarai chiamato Cefa» – che significa Pietro.
Ogni giorno incrociamo centinaia di sguardi, ci vengono fatte decine di domande, incontriamo centinaia di persone.. ma sono pochissimi, nell’arco di tutta una vita, quegli sguardi, quelle domande, quegli incontri che danno un senso all’esistenza e ci donano ciò di cui abbiamo bisogno veramente, e cioè vita vera e affetto. Quello sguardo, quell’incontro e quella domanda che Gesù fa a quei due giovani discepoli di Giovanni Battista hanno davvero stravolto le loro vite. Oggi il Signore si volta, ti guarda e ti chiede:”Cosa cerchi?”… ci fissa e ci chiede di scavare nel nostro bisogno più autentico e grande. Parte da qui il discepolato… dal nostro bisogno di vita. E la risposta di quei due giovani è fantastica per semplicità e profondità: “Dove abiti?”. Perché tutti abbiamo bisogno di una casa, perché casa significa vita e amore condivisi. Solo in Gesù possiamo realmente sentirci a casa, solo Lui può realmente conoscere i nostri bisogni e accoglierci così come siamo!  Buona domenica con Gesù.

Kimitake Hiraoka, AKA Yukio Mishima (1925)

Born into a samurai family, Mishima served briefly in the finance ministry before going on to become one of the most important Japanese novelists of the 20th century. His novels are known for their exquisite attention to detail and character and often involve paradoxes—such as when a troubled monk destroys the temple he loves in The Temple of the Golden Pavilion. Following a failed coup attempt in 1970, he tried to commit seppuku, ritual suicide by self-disembowelment.

This Day in History:
Huygens Probe Lands on Titan (2005)

It took the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft more than six years to reach Saturn. During the trip, the Huygens probe remained dormant, preserving its battery life for a landing on Saturn’s largest moon. The only moon in the solar system known to have clouds and a dense atmosphere, Titan resembles Earth in many ways. It was not known whether the probe would land on solid ground or in an ocean. After Huygens touched down, Titan’s surface was described as being similar to what food? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch
