Luke 12, 49-53

by Fr. Luis A. Zazano

Holy Gospel of JesuChrist according to Saint Luke 12, 49-53

Jesus said to his disciples: “I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing!
There is a baptism with which I must be baptized, and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished!
Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division.
From now on a household of five will be divided, three against two and two against three;
a father will be divided against his son and a son against his father, a mother against her daughter and a daughter against her mother, a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”

God wants to kindle your life with the fire of his love

1) Fire. Fire consumes and purifies, illuminates and warms you. When God is in your heart, He lights up a fire deep inside you. Whoever has God’s fire inside, illuminates and does not get tired; he is purified and becomes light. Even his or her personality changes to attract others to God , showing warmth and kindness to those around them.

2) Baptism. It’s the changing point; what makes you a child of God. When you accept Christ in your life, He gives you dignity and identity. You are a valuable person, so do not let yourself be diminished by anyone. Your heart should not be discouraged or humiliated – you are so important, that Jesus gave his Life for you.

3) Peace. This peace process Jesus describes brings along confrontation. You will have to fight for your path of peace. Today, if you want to follow a path of peace, you need to go through a process. Do not deceive yourself; to achieve peace in your life you must face many things, and you must begin by confronting your own self and accepting your reality.

God bless you in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. And don’t forget Heaven is our goal.
