1 Cor 12:12-14, 27-31A

For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.

Indeed, the body does not consist of one member but of many.

Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers; then deeds of power, then gifts of healing, forms of assistance, forms of leadership, various kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all possess gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? But strive for the greater gifts. And I will show you a still more excellent way.

A call to be a community

In this time of global crisis, of millions of people suffering from hunger, uncertainty and mourning, in times when the hope of the world seems to tremble on a tightrope, we are presented with the first reading of today: “The body does not consist of one member but of many. " The invitation for today is clear, to recognize that we are part of a whole, that our actions affect our closest communities as well as those that are far away, that what happens to the other affects me and that I am as vital to the world as the world is for me. "Woman, there is your son", "There is your mother" says today's Gospel. The call to think together about a greater love is clear. We need to think of a love that requires recognizing that we are companions and that therefore we have to worry about a wide world, in which all people fit, in which everyone knows that the one in front takes care of me and in which each one feels invited to take care of the other, out of love. Jesus calls us today concretely to be a team, to be with and for the other, to think together and to know how to be a community.

Prayer

Teach me, Abba, to open doors,
to live in a world without borders,
to know the name of my neighbor
and that he knows that he is counting on me.

Teach me to ask for help,
to know that I don't walk alone,
to want a more united world
and not to let love go unnoticed.

Teach me to work as part of a team,
to look for those on the margins,
to raise your voice for those who have lost their voices
and to be grateful for the road I have traveled.

Teach me to embrace my story
to be able to listen to other people's story,
to recognize that community matters,
and that when we walk together, your love overflows.
Amen.

—Camila Bernal Granados
