📖Reflexión del Papa Francisco sobre el Evangelio 📖
📍Amar a los enemigos asusta, pero así lo pide Dios📍
📄Mateo 5, 43-48📄
Amen, hagan el bien, bendigan, recen y no rechacen. Es darse a sí mismo dar el corazón, precisamente a los que no nos quieren, a los que nos hacen mal, a los enemigos. Y ésta es la novedad del Evangelio.
Jesús nos muestra que no tenemos mérito si amamos a los que nos aman, porque eso lo hacen también los pecadores. Los cristianos, en cambio, están llamados a amar a sus enemigos:
"Hagan el bien y presten sin esperar nada. Sin interés y su recompensa será grande".
Ciertamente el Evangelio es una novedad. Una novedad difícil que hay que llevar adelante, yendo detrás de Jesús.
"Padre, yo… ¡yo no tengo la voluntad de hacer así!". Bueno, si no te sientes capaz de esto es un problema tuyo, ¡pero el camino cristiano es éste!. Éste es el camino que Jesús nos enseña. ¿Y qué cosa debo esperar?. Vayan por el camino de Jesús, que es la misericordia; sean misericordiosos como su Padre es misericordioso. Sólo con un corazón misericordioso podremos hacer todo lo que el Señor nos aconseja. Hasta el final...
Jesús nos pide que seamos misericordiosos y que no juzguemos. Tantas veces, parece que nosotros hemos sido nombrados jueces de los demás: con chismes, hablando mal… juzgamos a todos. Y, en cambio, el Señor nos dice:
"No juzguen y no serán juzgados. No condenen y no serán condenados".
Y al final nos pide que perdonemos y así seremos perdonados.
Todos los días lo decimos en el Padrenuestro: "Perdónanos como nosotros perdonamos". Si yo no perdono, ¿cómo puedo pedir al Padre que me perdone?.
Pero éste es el camino de Jesús: la magnanimidad, la generosidad; el darse a sí mismo sin medida. Por esto Jesús vino al mundo, y así lo hizo Él: dio, perdonó, no habló mal de nadie, no juzgó.
Ser cristiano no es fácil y no podemos llegar a ser cristianos sólo con la gracia de Dios o sólo con nuestras fuerzas.
Y aquí viene la oración que debemos hacer todos los días:
"Señor, dame la gracia de llegar a ser un buen cristiano, una buena cristiana, porque yo no logro hacerlo".
(Homilía en Santa Marta, 11 de septiembre de 2014)
Spent the day creating content and shooting with the @stellarbeautyofficial team! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Honestly guys, not only is the team full of amazing women - but when my days are spent playing with the camera and getting creative, how could I not love my job?! 🙊🙌🏼
“A story about RISK”
It was time for movement! My back was healing from the car accident nicely and my husband had found decent work. It was time to start to hunting for studios for me to move my growing clientele into..
I was looking for an office space to convert into a 2-3 chair space. We searched and search.. and it just wasn’t happening!
One night, scrolling thru Instagram.. we noticed a post from a local hairstylist that read, “I’m relocating! My salon is closing!”
Immediately the same thought entered into both me and my husbands mind! “Let’s go check it out!” -we said full of hope and excitement !
Within a matter of days, we were signing the lease and popping bottles of champagne! Just like the..We had just signed a lease for a 2,000sq 12 chair salon.. We were in for the roller coaster of our careers.. because 1month into the construction.. an unexpected series incidences took place.
During the rebuild of our new venture.. we were a little set back because 1 of our 2 cars had just broken down and all of our funds we going towards the salon build out. It wasn’t that pressing on me because I still provided services for my clients at home. So I rarely needed a car.
One day, I was with one of my regulars when A man inconspicuously slipped an envelope into my screen door. Mid conversation, I casually took the envelope and opened it. To my shock and detriment, it was an evection notice! One of my neighbors had reported me to our property management company for working out of my house. Apparently the warning notices had gotten lost in the mail prior.
Mortified , I called the owner of my building and begged for them to let us stay in our lease. I assured him that we had an establishment that I could take my clientele to. After much back and forth, He agreed, as long as moved my clientele out within 24hrs.
I must have walked into 7 salons before finding a temporary solution.
I walked to work ever day, and walked home with a garbage bag full of towels and drapes for laundering. Luckily the temporary salon I was at was a few blocks away.

Let's talk this one through. As usual, this is a snapshot (less than 60 seconds) and we don't have the full story, but here's my commentary. The dude is much bigger than these officers (and much bigger than me). As such, I try to plan accordingly given that the guy probably has over 100 lbs on me. Slow things down--talk to the dude, try to talk him into cuffs while you wait for other units to arrive. The Taser is not the miracle pill that people think it is (as you can see, it took 3 different officers trying before the 3rd got it right). Obviously, they were able to get him down at the end; however, I believe slowing things down a bit instead of immediately going to the Taser may have either a) prevented the need for force (I've talked my way out of so many uses of forces by just being straight and calm with people) or b) made the use of force more effective (more officers = less prolonged struggle, etc). If it's go-time, you deal with what you've got, but from what I could see, I didn't see an immediate threat to the public that would require me to hit the go button. Again, I'm not Monday morning QB'ing them, as I wasn't there and don't have the full story; I'm just putting out what I would have done as a smaller guy faced with a bigger suspect. (And I hope some of you can give me feedback on another effective way of dealing with the situation) Your thoughts? -----------------------------------------------
I have found that if you love life, life will love you back 💞
I’m so happy that I got to tick Santorini off my bucket list (but I’m def coming back in the future... maybe #mybigfatgreekwedding!?!?!) Who else is daydreaming of that Greek summer ⭐️
