28/02/2020 – Viernes después de Ceniza – Tiempo de Cuaresma. – LECTURAS Y SANTOS DEL DÍA – READING OF THE DAY

PRIMERA LECTURA
Este es el ayuno que yo quiero.
Lectura del libro de lsaías 58, 1-9a

Esto dice el Señor Dios:

«Grita a pleno pulmón, no te contengas, alza la voz como una trompeta, denuncia a mi pueblo sus delitos, a la casa de Jacob sus pecados.

Consultan mi oráculo a diario, desean conocer mi voluntad. Como si fuera un pueblo que practica la justicia y no descuida el mandato de su Dios, me piden sentencias justas, quieren acercarse a Dios.

“¿Para qué ayunar, si no haces caso; mortificarnos, si no te enteras?”

En realidad, el día de ayuno hacéis vuestros negocios y apremiáis a vuestros servidores; ayunáis para querellas y litigios, y herís con furibundos puñetazos.

No ayunéis de este modo, si queréis que se oiga vuestra voz en el cielo.

¿Es ése el ayuno que deseo en el día de la penitencia: inclinar la cabeza como un junco, acostarse sobre saco y ceniza, ¿A eso lo llamáis ayuno, día agradable al Señor?

Este es el ayuno que yo quiero: soltar las cadenas injustas, desatar las corras del yugo, liberar a los oprimidos, quebrar todos los yugos, partir tu pan con el hambriento, hospedar a los pobres sin techo, cubrir a quien ves desnudo y no desentenderte de los tuyos.

Entonces surgirá tu luz como la aurora, enseguida se curarán tus heridas, ante ti marchará la justicia, detrás de ti la gloria del Señor. Entonces clamarás al Señor, y te responderá; pedirás ayuda y te dirá: “Aquí estoy”».

Palabra de Dios.

Sal 50, 3-4. 5-6a. 18-19
R. Un corazón quebrantado y humillado, oh, Dios, tú no lo desprecias.

Misericordia, Dios mío, por tu bondad,
por tu inmensa compasión borra mi culpa;
lava del todo mi delito,
limpia mi pecado. R.

Pues yo reconozco mi culpa,
tengo siempre presente mi pecado.
Contra ti, contra ti solo pequé,
cometí la maldad en tu presencia. R.

Los sacrificios no te satisfacen:
si te ofreciera un holocausto, no lo querrías.
El sacrificio agradable a Dios
es un espíritu quebrantado,
un corazón quebrantado y humillado,
tú, oh, Dios, tú no lo desprecias. R.

Versículo Cf. Am 5, 14

Buscad el bien, no el mal, y viviréis;
y el Señor estará con vosotros.

EVANGELIO
Cuando les sea arrebatado el esposo, entonces ayunarán.
Lectura del santo Evangelio según san Mateo 9, 14-15

En aquel tiempo, los discípulos de Juan se le acercan a Jesús, preguntándole:«Por qué nosotros y los fariseos ayunamos a menudo y, en cambio, tus discípulos no ayunan?»Jesús les dijo:«¿Es que pueden guardar luto los amigos del esposo, mientras el esposo está con ellos? Llegarán días en que les arrebatarán al esposo, y entonces ayunaran».

Palabra del Señor.

READING OF THE DAY

A reading from the book of Isaiah
IS 58:1-9A

Thus says the Lord GOD:
Cry out full-throated and unsparingly,
lift up your voice like a trumpet blast;
Tell my people their wickedness,
and the house of Jacob their sins.
They seek me day after day,
and desire to know my ways,
Like a nation that has done what is just
and not abandoned the law of their God;
They ask me to declare what is due them,
pleased to gain access to God.
“Why do we fast, and you do not see it?
afflict ourselves, and you take no note of it?”

Lo, on your fast day you carry out your own pursuits,
and drive all your laborers.
Yes, your fast ends in quarreling and fighting,
striking with wicked claw.
Would that today you might fast
so as to make your voice heard on high!
Is this the manner of fasting I wish,
of keeping a day of penance:
That a man bow his head like a reed
and lie in sackcloth and ashes?
Do you call this a fast,
a day acceptable to the LORD?
This, rather, is the fasting that I wish:
releasing those bound unjustly,
untying the thongs of the yoke;
Setting free the oppressed,
breaking every yoke;
Sharing your bread with the hungry,
sheltering the oppressed and the homeless;
Clothing the naked when you see them,
and not turning your back on your own.
Then your light shall break forth like the dawn,
and your wound shall quickly be healed;
Your vindication shall go before you,
and the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.
Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer,
you shall cry for help, and he will say: Here I am!

GOSPEL OF THE DAY

From the Gospel according to Matthew
MT 9:14-15

The disciples of John approached Jesus and said,
“Why do we and the Pharisees fast much,
but your disciples do not fast?”
Jesus answered them, “Can the wedding guests mourn
as long as the bridegroom is with them?
The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them,
and then they will fast.”
