EVANGELIUM E OMELIA\HOMILY:
In illo témpore: Dixit Iesus discípulis suis parábolam hanc: Homo péregre proficíscens vocávit servos suos, et trádidit illis bona sua. Et uni dedit quinque talénta, álii autem duo, álii vero unum, unicuíque secúndum própriam virtútem, et proféctus est statim. Abiit autem, qui quinque talénta accéperat, et operátus est in eis, et lucrátus est ália quinque. Simíliter et, qui duo accéperat, lucrátus est ália duo. Qui autem unum accéperat, ábiens fodit in terram, et abscóndit pecúniam dómini sui. Post multum vero témporis venit dóminus servórum illórum, et pósuit ratiónem cum eis. Et accédens qui quinque talénta accéperat, óbtulit ália quinque talénta, dicens: Dómine, quinque talénta tradidísti mihi, ecce, ália quinque superlucrátus sum. Ait illi dóminus eius: Euge, serve bone et fidélis, quia super pauca fuísti fidélis, super multa te constítuam: intra in gáudium dómini tui. Accéssit autem et qui duo talénta accéperat, et ait: Dómine, duo talénta tradidísti mihi, ecce, ália duo lucrátus sum. Ait illi dóminus eius: Euge, serve bone et fidélis, quia super pauca fuísti fidélis, super multa te constítuam: intra in gáudium dómini tui.
At that time, Jesus spoke this parable to His disciples: A man going abroad, called his servants and handed over his goods to them. And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his particular ability, and then he went on his journey. And he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and gained five more. In like manner, he who had received the two gained two more. But he who had received the one went away and dug in the earth and hid his master’s money. Then after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. And he who had received the five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Master, you handed over to me five talents; behold, I have gained five others in addition.’ His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; because you have been faithful over a few things, I will set you over many; enter into the joy of your master.’ And he also who had received the two talents came, and said, ‘Master, you handed over to me two talents; behold, I have gained two more.’ His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; because you have been faithful over a few things, I will set you over many; enter into the joy of your master.’
DALL’OMELIA DI (FROM THE HOMILY BY) DON ENRICO RONCAGLIA – GIOVEDI 22 SETTEMBRE 2022 ORE 18.00:
DALL’OMELIA DI DON ENRICO RONCAGLIA (**,1)
Eccli 44:16-27; 45, 3-20
Ecco il gran sacerdote che nei suoi giorni piacque a Dio, e fu trovato giusto, e nel giorno dell’ira fu strumento di conciliazione. Nessuno fu simile a lui nel conservare la legge dell’Eccelso. Per questo, con giuramento, il Signore gli assicurò la gloria nella sua stirpe.
In quel tempo Gesù disse ai suoi discepoli questa parabola: «Un uomo, in procinto di partire, chiamati i servi consegnò loro i suoi beni: a chi diede cinque talenti, a chi due, a chi uno: a ciascuno secondo la sua capacità, e subito partì.
Abbiamo sentito la parabola dei talenti che e’ rivolta a tutti battezzati. I doni (i talenti) che riceviamo servono per arricchire tutta la Chiesa.
Oggi ricordiamo San Tommaso di Villanova, al secolo Tomás García Martínez (1486, Fuenllana, Spagna – 8 settembre 1555, Valencia, Spagna). E’ stato un eremitano di Sant’Agostino spagnolo, divenuto poi arcivescovo di Valencia. Fu anche asceta, nonche’ predicatore, e faceva moltissima carita al punto che mori in un letto non suo. Fu il primo ad inviare missionari agostiniani nelle Americhe. Tutti i suoi doni li mise a disposizione della Chiesa.
Che anche noi possiamo seguire il suo esempio!
Sia lodato Gesu’ Cristo! Sempre sia lodato!

FROM THE HOMILY BY DON ENRICO RONCAGLIA (**,1)
Eccli 44: 16-27; 45, 3-20 Here is the high priest who in his day pleased God, and was found righteous, and in the day of wrath he was an instrument of conciliation. No one was like him in keeping the law of the Exalted. For this, with an oath, the Lord assured him the glory in his lineage.
Matth 25: 14-23 At that time Jesus told his disciples this parable: “A man, about to leave, called the servants and handed over his goods to them: to whom he gave five talents, to whom two, to whom one: to each according to his ability, and immediately left. We have heard the parable of the talents which is addressed to all the baptized. The gifts (talents) we receive serve to enrich the whole Church.
Today we remember Saint Thomas of Villanova, aka Tomás García Martínez (1486, Fuenllana, Spain – 8 September 1555, Valencia, Spain).
He was a Spanish hermit of Sant’Agostino, who later became archbishop of Valencia. He was also an ascetic, he did a great deal of charity to the point that he died in a bed that was not his own and was a preacher.
He was the first to send Augustinian missionaries to the Americas.
All his gifts he placed at the disposal of the Church. That also us can follow his example!
Praised be Jesus Christ! Always be praised!
