[:es] 21/02/2020 – Viernes de la 6ª semana de Tiempo Ordinario.

PRIMERA LECTURA
Lo mismo que el cuerpo sin aliento está muerto, así también la fe sin obras está muerta.
Lectura de la carta del apóstol Santiago 2, 14-24. 26

¿De qué le sirve a uno, hermanos míos, decir que tiene fe, si no tiene obras? ¿ Podrá acaso salvarlo esa fe?

Si un hermano o una hermana andan desnudos y faltos del alimento diario y uno de vosotros les dice: «Id en paz; abrigaos y saciaos», pero no les da lo necesario para el cuerpo; ¿de qué sirve?

Así es también la fe: si no tiene obras, está muerta por dentro.

Pero alguno dirá:

«Tú tienes fe, y yo tengo obras, muéstrame esa fe tuya sin las obras, y yo con mis obras te mostraré la fe».

Tú crees que hay un solo Dios. Haces bien. Hasta los demonios lo creen y tiemblan.

¿Quieres enterarte, insensato, de que la fe sin las obras es inútil? Abrahán, nuestro padre, ¿no fue justificado por sus obras al ofrecer a Isaac, su hijo, sobre el altar? Ya ves que la fe concurría con sus obras y que esa fe, por las obras, logró la perfección.

Así se cumplió la Escritura que dice: «Abrahán creyó a Dios, y eso le fue contado como justicia» y fue llamado «amigo de Dios».

Ya veis que el hombre es justificado por las obras y no solo por la fe.

Por lo mismo que el cuerpo sin aliento está muerto, así también la fe sin obras esta muerta.

Palabra de Dios.

Sal 111, 1-2. 3-4. 5-6
R. Dichoso quien ama de corazón los mandatos del Señor.

Dichoso quien teme al Señor
y ama de corazón sus mandatos.
Su linaje será poderoso en la tierra,
la descendencia del justo será bendita. R.

En su casa habrá riquezas y abundancia,
su caridad dura pos siempre.
En las tinieblas brilla como una luz
el que es justo, clemente y compasivo. R.

Dichoso el que se apiada y presta,
y administra rectamente sus asuntos,
porque jamás vacilará.
El recuerdo del justo será perpetuo. R.

Aleluya Jn 15, 15b
R. Aleluya, aleluya, aleluya.

A vosotros os llamo amigos – dice el Señor -,
porque todo lo que he oído a mi Padre
os lo he dado a conocer. R.

EVANGELIO
El que pierda su vida por mí y por el Evangelio, la salvará.
Lectura del santo Evangelio según san Marcos 8, 34-9, 1

En aquel tiempo, llamando a la gente y a sus discípulos, Jesús les dijo:

«Si alguno quiere venir en pos de mí, que se niegue a sí mismo, tome su cruz y me siga. Porque, quien quiera salvar su vida, la perderá; pero el que pierda su vida por mí y por el Evangelio, la salvará. Pues ¿de qué le sirve al hombre ganar el mundo entero y perder su alma? ¿O qué podrá dar uno para recobrarla? Quien se avergüence de mí y de mis palabras en esta generación adúltera y pecadora, también el Hijo del hombre se avergonzará de él cuando venga con la gloria de su Padre entre sus santos ángeles».

Y añadió:

«En verdad os digo que algunos de los aquí presentes no gustarán la muerte hasta que vean el reino de Dios en toda su potencia».

Palabra del Señor.

READING OF THE DAY

A reading from the letter of James
JAS 2:14-24, 26

What good is it, my brothers and sisters,
if someone says he has faith but does not have works?
Can that faith save him?
If a brother or sister has nothing to wear
and has no food for the day,
and one of you says to them,
“Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well,”
but you do not give them the necessities of the body,
what good is it?
So also faith of itself,
if it does not have works, is dead.

Indeed someone might say,
“You have faith and I have works.”
Demonstrate your faith to me without works,
and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works.
You believe that God is one.
You do well.
Even the demons believe that and tremble.
Do you want proof, you ignoramus,
that faith without works is useless?
Was not Abraham our father justified by works
when he offered his son Isaac upon the altar?
You see that faith was active along with his works,
and faith was completed by the works.
Thus the Scripture was fulfilled that says,
Abraham believed God,
and it was credited to him as righteousness,
and he was called the friend of God.
See how a person is justified by works and not by faith alone.
For just as a body without a spirit is dead,
so also faith without works is dead.

GOSPEL OF THE DAY

From the Gospel according to Mark
MK 8:34–9:1

Jesus summoned the crowd with his disciples and said to them,
“Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself,
take up his cross, and follow me.
For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for my sake
and that of the Gospel will save it.
What profit is there for one to gain the whole world
and forfeit his life?
What could one give in exchange for his life?
Whoever is ashamed of me and of my words
in this faithless and sinful generation,
the Son of Man will be ashamed of
when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.”

He also said to them,
“Amen, I say to you,
there are some standing here who will not taste death
until they see that the Kingdom of God has come in power.”
