St. Edward Catholic Church
Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time
February 8, 2015
Let us understand the workings of God’s grace
From an explanation of Paul’s letter to the Galatians by
Saint Augustine, bishop
The Picture above of parishioner, Thomas
Colvin, was found on Bishop Michael
Barber's Blog, where he also said:
“I was so proud to see a large group from St.
Edward’s parish in Newark — with their
noticeable yellow t-shirts. “
Paul writes to the Galatians to make them
understand that by God’s grace they are no longer under
the law. When the Gospel was preached to them, there
were some among them of Jewish origin known as
circumcisers—though they called themselves
Christians—who did not grasp the gift they had received.
They still wanted to be under the burden of the law. Now
God had imposed that burden on those who were slaves
to sin and not on servants of justice. That is to say, God
had given a just law to unjust men in order to show them
their sin, not to take it away. For sin is taken away only by
the gift of faith that works through love. The Galatians had
already received this gift, but the circumcisers claimed
that the Gospel would not save them unless they
underwent circumcision and were willing to observe also
the other traditional Jewish rites.
The Galatians, therefore, began to question
Paul’s preaching of the Gospel because he did not
require Gentiles to follow Jewish observances as other
apostles had done. Even Peter had yielded to the
scandalized protests of the circumcisers. He pretended to
believe that the Gospel would not save the Gentiles
unless they fulfilled the burden of the law. But Paul
recalled him from such dissimulation, as is shown in this
very same letter. A similar issue arises in Paul’s letter to
the Romans, but with an evident difference. Through his
letter to them Paul was able to resolve the strife and
controversy that had developed between the Jewish and
Gentile converts.
In the present letter Paul is writing to persons
who were profoundly influenced and disturbed by the
circumcisers. The Galatians had begun to believe them
and to think that Paul had not preached rightly, since he
had not ordered them to be circumcised. And so the
Apostle begins by saying: I am amazed that you are so
quickly deserting him who called you to the glory of

Christ, and turning to another gospel.
After this there comes a brief introduction to the
point at issue. But remember in the very opening of the
letter Paul had said that he was an apostle not from men
nor by any man, a statement that does not appear in any
other letter of his. He is making it quite clear that the
circumcisers, for their part, are not from God but from
men, and that his authority in preaching the Gospel must
be considered equal to that of the other apostles. For he
was called to be an apostle not from men nor by any man,
but through God the Father and his Son, Jesus Christ.

the piano and cello. There are readings, prayer

cross. Taizé is an hour long and is a wonderful way to
experience a peaceful, calming, and spiritually uplifting
time of prayer. All are welcome and no experience is

Comentário Anúncio do Evangelho: resposta de Deus à
dor humana (Mc 1,29-39)
Lectio: “Tive por ganho meses de decepção e couberamme noites de sofrimento”, são as palavras de Jó diante de
uma dor cotidiana: “ao amanhecer, espero novamente à
tarde e me encho de sofrimentos até o anoitecer”. O tema
do sofrimento, da dor, da enfermidade está presente na
liturgia deste 5º domingo comum desde a I leitura, como
retrata tão bem o personagem Jó, que vive o tormento do
sofrimento, do físico devido à doença até aquele moral,
que nasce da perda dos afetos mais caros, dos bens até
o afastamento dos amigos.
Jó é a imagem do homem justo que sofre sem se
revoltar. Claro, ele demonstra toda a amargura que
ofusca o sentido de sua existência, mas ainda assim, na
dor mais profunda, ele tem um fio de esperança na
providência de Deus, que recolhe em suas mãos as suas
lágrimas humanas, e no final do livro, transforma-lhes em
alegria e bênção: “ele conforta os corações
despedaçados, ele enfaixa suas feridas e as cura”, como
reza o salmista (Sl 146).
Pois é, com as suas mãos, Deus enfaixa as feridas do
sofrimento humano. É acerca dessas mãos divinas que
aliviam a dor humana que nos fala o Evangelho de hoje.
Jesus deixa a sinagoga, onde havia ensinado com
autoridade, libertando um homem “possuído por um
espírito mau” (linguagem para mostrar a força que o
maligno exerce na vida de uma pessoa), e vai com Tiago
e João até a casa de Simão (Pedro) e André. Pois,
depois de uma atividade tão intensa, como todo ser
humano, Jesus precisava descansar e se alimentar; e
assim, Pedro lhe oferece hospitalidade.
Chegando lá, a sogra de Simão Pedro estava de cama
com febre; poderíamos até considerar esta informação de
pouca importância, mas o próprio fato de o evangelista
ter colocado no relato e de que os discípulos
apressadamente contaram o fato a Jesus, faz pensar a
algo mais sério e inquietante. Jesus se aproxima,
portanto, da anciã, segura a sua mão, ajudando-a a se
levantar; e a febre desaparece; nenhuma palavra, só um
simples gesto: o gesto das mãos, que ajudam àquela
senhora enferma.
O verbo que Marcos usa para descrever o gesto de
Jesus para com a sogra de Pedro, “levantar”, é o mesmo
usado para a ressurreição; ser curado por Jesus é muito
mais do que receber uma cura física, é uma cura que
leva a pessoa a uma vida renovada nele no dom de si e
no serviço desinteressado ao próximo: “e ela começou a
Missa Domingo V Do Tempo Comum
O texto ainda nos diz que à tarde, “a cidade inteira se
reuniu em frente da casa” de Simão Pedro onde Jesus
estava hospedado e aí ele curou uma multidão de
pessoas doentes e expulsou muitos demônios; é um
gesto que claramente mostra o quanto Deus, em Cristo,
está próximo à dor humana, curando-a, assumindo-a
sobre si até a morte de cruz para vencê-la com a
O dia de Jesus é realmente intenso: em Cafarnaum, da
presença na sinagoga para ensinar ao encontro com a
multidão para curar, Jesus encontra também um tempo
para rezar, ter um encontro pessoal com o Pai: “de
madrugada, quando ainda estava escuro, Jesus se
levantou e foi rezar num lugar deserto”. Na verdade, com
esta informação, vemos a tensão que acompanha toda a
atividade de Jesus. O conflito entre aquilo que ele deve
cumprir porque o Pai lhe mandou e aquilo que as
pessoas esperavam dele. Os habitantes de Cafarnaum
queriam que ele ficasse o tempo com eles curando toda
pessoa que aparecesse enferma, mas Jesus abandona a
cidade para contrapor-se a errada interpretação da sua
missão. As curas são sinais, são manifestações do poder
e da bondade de Jesus, mas a sua vinda não tem como
finalidade última estas curas, mas o anúncio da plenitude
dos tempos, da chegada do Reino de Deus que se
demonstrará de maneira sublime com a sua
Ressurreição, ou seja, quando derrotar a morte. Assim, a
acolhida justa à mensagem de Jesus não consiste em
considerá-lo como um curandeiro, mas no dar ouvido ao
seu convite, converter-se, ter fé e confiar
incondicionalmente no poder de e na bondade de Deus.
É ele quem toma a iniciativa de ir ao encontro das
pessoas para pregar e expulsar toda a escravidão do
pecado. -Pe Carlos Henrique Nascimento
