Audio of daily prayer read by Fr. Uribe OMI

Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. You alone know my faults. Forgive me of these sins and help me to move forward each new day as I try to live my life for You. Amen.


Luke 19: 11-28 

While people were listening to Jesus speak,
he proceeded to tell a parable because he was near Jerusalem
and they thought that the Kingdom of God
would appear there immediately.
So he said,
“A nobleman went off to a distant country
to obtain the kingship for himself and then to return.
He called ten of his servants and gave them ten gold coins
and told them, ‘Engage in trade with these until I return.’
His fellow citizens, however, despised him
and sent a delegation after him to announce,
‘We do not want this man to be our king.’
But when he returned after obtaining the kingship,
he had the servants called, to whom he had given the money,
to learn what they had gained by trading.
The first came forward and said,
‘Sir, your gold coin has earned ten additional ones.’
He replied, ‘Well done, good servant!
You have been faithful in this very small matter;
take charge of ten cities.’
Then the second came and reported,
‘Your gold coin, sir, has earned five more.’
And to this servant too he said,
‘You, take charge of five cities.’
Then the other servant came and said,
‘Sir, here is your gold coin;
I kept it stored away in a handkerchief,
for I was afraid of you, because you are a demanding man;
you take up what you did not lay down
and you harvest what you did not plant.’
He said to him,
‘With your own words I shall condemn you,
you wicked servant.
You knew I was a demanding man,
taking up what I did not lay down
and harvesting what I did not plant;
why did you not put my money in a bank?
Then on my return I would have collected it with interest.’
And to those standing by he said,
‘Take the gold coin from him
and give it to the servant who has ten.’
But they said to him,
‘Sir, he has ten gold coins.’
He replied, ‘I tell you,
to everyone who has, more will be given,
but from the one who has not,
even what he has will be taken away.
Now as for those enemies of mine who did not want me as their king,
bring them here and slay them before me.’”

After he had said this,
he proceeded on his journey up to Jerusalem.

Audio de la oración diaira leída por el p. Uribe, OMI 

Bendíceme, Padre, porque he pecado. Sólo Tú conoces mis faltas. Perdóname por estos pecados y ayúdame a seguir adelante cada nuevo día mientras trato de vivir mi vida para Ti. Amén.


Lc 19, 11-28

En aquel tiempo, como ya se acercaba Jesús a Jerusalén y la gente pensaba que el Reino de Dios iba a manifestarse de un momento a otro, él les dijo esta parábola:

“Había un hombre de la nobleza que se fue a un país lejano para ser nombrado rey y volver como tal. Antes de irse, mandó llamar a diez empleados suyos, les entregó una moneda de mucho valor a cada uno y les dijo: ‘Inviertan este dinero mientras regreso’.

Pero sus compatriotas lo aborrecían y enviaron detrás de él a unos delegados que dijeran: ‘No queremos que éste sea nuestro rey’.

Pero fue nombrado rey, y cuando regresó a su país, mandó llamar a los empleados a quienes había entregado el dinero, para saber cuánto había ganado cada uno.

Se presentó el primero y le dijo: ‘Señor, tu moneda ha producido otras diez monedas’. Él le contestó: ‘Muy bien. Eres un buen empleado. Puesto que has sido fiel en una cosa pequeña, serás gobernador de diez ciudades’.

Se presentó el segundo y le dijo: ‘Señor, tu moneda ha producido otras cinco monedas’. Y el señor le respondió: ‘Tú serás gobernador de cinco ciudades’.
Se presentó el tercero y le dijo: ‘Señor, aquí está tu moneda. La he tenido guardada en un pañuelo, pues te tuve miedo, porque eres un hombre exigente, que reclama lo que no ha invertido y cosecha lo que no ha sembrado’. El señor le contestó: ‘Eres un mal empleado. Por tu propia boca te condeno. Tú sabías que yo soy un hombre exigente, que reclamo lo que no he invertido y que cosecho lo que no he sembrado, ¿por qué, pues, no pusiste mi dinero en el banco para que yo, al volver, lo hubiera recobrado con intereses?’

Después les dijo a los presentes: ‘Quítenle a éste la moneda y dénsela al que tiene diez’. Le respondieron: ‘Señor, ya tiene diez monedas’. Él les dijo: ‘Les aseguro que a todo el que tenga se le dará con abundancia, y al que no tenga, aun lo que tiene se le quitará. En cuanto a mis enemigos, que no querían tenerme como rey, tráiganlos aquí y mátenlos en mi presencia’ ”.

Dicho esto, Jesús prosiguió su camino hacia Jerusalén al frente de sus discípulos.
