THE LESSON
La Lección Primera
Wisdom 3: 1-9
The First Lesson
Sabiduría 3: 1-9
Las almas de los buenos están en las manos de Dios, y el tormento no las alcanzará. Los insensatos creen
que los buenos están muertos; consideran su muerte como una desgracia, y como una calamidad el haberse
alejado de nosotros. Pero los buenos están en paz: aunque a los ojos de las personas parecían castigados,
abrigaban la esperanza de no tener que morir. Después de sufrir pequeños castigos, recibirán grandes
beneficios, porque Dios los puso a prueba y los halló dignos de Dios. Dios los probó como al oro en el crisol,
y Dios los aceptó como un sacrificio ofrecido en el altar. El día en que Dios venga a juzgarlos, resplandecerán
como antorchas, como chispas que prenden entre el rastrojo. Juzgarán a las naciones y gobernarán a los
pueblos, y Dios reinará sobre ellos para siempre. Los que confían en Dios comprenderán la verdad, y los
fieles permanecerán a el lado con amor, pues Dios es bueno y favorece a los elegidos.
+ Esta es la Palabra de Dios
TE ALABAMOS, O DIOS
The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and no torment will ever touch them. In the eyes of the
foolish they seemed to have died, and their departure was thought to be a disaster, and their going from us
to be their destruction; but they are at peace. For though in the sight of others they were punished, their
hope is full of immortality. Having been disciplined a little, they will receive great good, because God tested
them and found them worthy; like gold in the furnace God tried them, and like a sacrificial burnt-offering
God accepted them. In the time of their visitation they will shine forth, and will run like sparks through the
stubble. They will govern nations and rule over peoples, and God will reign over them forever. Those who
trust in God will understand truth, and the faithful will abide with God in love, because grace and mercy are
upon God’s holy ones, and God watches over the elect. + This is the word of God
THANKS BE TO GOD

Choral Response
La Lección Segunda
Juan 6: 35-40
The Second Lesson
John 6: 35-40
Jesús dijo: “Yo soy el pan que da vida. La persona que viene a mí, nunca tendrá hambre; y la persona que
cree en mí, nunca tendrá sed. Pero como ya les dije, ustedes no creen aunque me han visto. Todos los que
Dios me da, vienen a mí; y a los que vienen a mí, no los echaré fuera. Porque yo no he bajado del cielo para
hacer mi propia voluntad, sino para hacer la voluntad de Dios, que me ha enviado. Y la voluntad de Dios
que me ha enviado es que yo no pierda a ninguno de los que Dios me ha dado, sino que los resucite en
el día último. Porque la voluntad de Dios es que todos los que miran al Niño de Dios y creen en él, tengan
vida eterna; y yo los resucitaré en el día último.”
+ Esta es la Palabra de Dios
