Homily by Deacon Silvia Antonia Brandon Perez, ARCWP and Progressive Coalition Catholic Eucharist Liturgy at School of the Americas Watch in Colombus, GA.

Homily for Saturday, November 21 st
Today we see Jesus the errant Jewish sage on a rampage, throwing the moneychangers out of the temple, an angry Jesus Who is acting in a very disagreeable fashion. In our "politically correct" society, we Have Been Brought Up To Achieve niceness at all costs. We want everyone to love us. This is what society has decreed is the Most Important Thing To Achieve, after, of course, amassing money in abundance. But Jesus is knocking over tables and breaking furniture, more than likely using curse words That we do not associate With This man Whom We Have Been Taught is our consoler, and I is spilling precious coins to boot!

Yet if we look closely at His THROUGHOUT Scripture actions, We Have to admit That Jesus was anything but a conflict-avoider As We Have Been Taught to be. His public ministry is a ministry of confrontation. If we are to obey God's command to listen to him, we can not avoid confrontation either. We will Have to be up front and center About injustice, and to subvert and disrupt the current situation of our society, greed is Enshrined Where is our God and Mammon. 
In fact, God herself've Had Something to say About our "burnt sacrifices" and our political correctness. Remember the comparison to whitened sepulchers in Matthew 23:27? God tells us, in First Isaiah 1:11,  "I am fed up With burnt offerings of rams and the fat of calves!" Mother and as a good will, she stresses the point: 13 " Do not bring any more of your offerings to useless Means   thei r incense fills me with loathing. I can not endure another festival of injustice! "
This is pretty harsh language! What Brought this on? Well, Further on, we get the answer quite Clearly, When We Are Told our prayers will not be Heard Because our hands are covered with blood! 16 " Wash! Clean yourselves! Get your injustice out of my sight!   Cease to do evil 17  and learn to do good! Search for justice and help the oppressed. Protect Those Who are orphaned and plead the case of Those Who are widowed "
Our modern corporate society preys on the weakest in our society, and That includes mothers and Their children, the elderly and the disabled. More and more, what little was Achieved in days Earlier Being is taken away in what is probably the largest recent transfer of. wealth from the poorest to the richest The Occupy Movement worldwide That Brought out: the 1% versus the 99%. But in our country, using Orwellian doublethink and doublespeak, politicians That Were Elected to Represent all members of the society, engage in orgies of misogynist and unjust legislation. We mouth platitudes about the protection of the family, And Then deport the strangers among us, Whose homelands Have Been scorched by our military and economic policies. We discriminate, as a nation, as a matter of course.
We are at war everywhere, the new Pax Americana making and selling weapons to all countries, and to Frequently Both sides in a conflict. We label people as terrorists Those fighting for freedom and Have Their policies and programs, Such as Those exemplified by the School of the Americas, That target the so-called subversive among us, Those Who are willing to fight injustice wherever it May Appear. Dissent, a cornerstone of our early existence, is criminalized daily.
What would Jesus do? What did I do? I broke the furniture, Threw out the merchants of greed, subverted the social order of empire, and was crucified, the punishment meted by the Empire to subvert and to Those Who revolutionaries, as a consequence of His incredible ministry. As people of faith, We Who Were That We Were Told to "listen to him," must stand up and protest our national sins, and They are many. We are not called upon to agree but to disagree. We are not called upon to be nice, but to resist, to object, to shout out or to stand up for human rights and justice, for peace, and today, as women seeking inclusion in every church, in the image of the deity, for women. For the woman is at risk Greatly in our world, and Through Her, all of humanity. T I story of all women in the Struggle for equal participation in society is Also the story of all the poor, the classless, what Romero called "Those Who have no voice." At a time When more and more women, in the United States and Other Countries, increasingly live in poverty, and continue to suffer from unequal working conditions, from sexual discrimination and crimes of violence directed at women Specifically, we must all stand together to bring About equal rights and an equal voice to all inhabitants of This Planet, no matter Their gender, race or economic class.

Let us rephrase Donne's meditation to include women: N or woman is an island, entire of herself; every woman is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. (...) A NY woman's death diminishes me, because i am Involved in womankind; and THEREFORE never send to know for Whom the Bell Tolls; it tolls for thee.

Beating swords to plowshares With your hands
God knows you possessed the courage,
And Isaiah Said it best: (to chorus)


Now the generations That Have you joined on This Road
Look to You With wonder in Their Eyes.
Now the torch is passed along As They pick up the load,
Now you see Their eyes are on the prize.
God knows the courage They POSSESS, And Isaiah Said it best: (to chorus)

Song: Cardboard Roofs                     by Ali Primera

How sad the sound of the rain
on cardboard roofs, How sadly my people live
. The worker in cardboard houses comes down almost dragging His feet from the weight of His Suffering, it is heavy Suffering; . Suffering weighs you down Above've leaves His pregnant wife; below is the city and I lost in Its nonsense is today the same as tomorrow; . it's his life with no tomorrow How sad the sound of the rain on cardboard roofs, How sadly my people live. Children in cardboard houses The color of my land wearing millionaires of all its scars and parasites That is why the children live in cardboard houses so sadly. How sad the sound of the rain on cardboard roofs, How sadly my people live in cardboard houses.

LITURGY OF THE WORD    
First Reading                       
On Clouds And Illusions - by Cuban poet Silvia A. Brandon Pérez
     Does smoke talk to the clouds?
          ~ From the Book of Questions VII, Pablo Neruda

One day a sad smoke was Heard
speaking to the clouds.
It came up from a crematorium,
in Daschau or Auchwitz,
neither the place nor the time matter,
It was a rather dense smoke,
made up of the particles of dreams,
of the hopes of man, woman, child,
That finally there would be peace upon the earth,
happiness without Obligations,
Which a celebration in the embrace of humans,
Whether black, white, red-skinned or Asian,
Whether tall or heavy, serious, barefoot,
shy or thin,
 or short with brown high heels
Became reality, and the clouds,
Who Have Seen It All, agreed. 

Gospel Acclamation
Celtic Alleluia by Christopher Walker and Fintan O'Carroll
Alleluia, Alleluia! Alleluia, Alleluia!
All: Alleluia, Alleluia! Alleluia, Alleluia!
Leader: The word of our God is forever;
              God's is the Word That Is living.
               It is Brought to us by our brother Jesus Christ.
All: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

1)                 Gospel                                                   Mark 11: 15-18                                  

God dwells in you. And Also in you.

2)                   The Good News of Jesus According To Mark

3)                   Glory to you, Our God

When They Went to Jerusalem, Jesus Entered the Temple and driving out Those Who Began engaged in selling and buying. I have overturned the money changers' tables and the stalls of Those selling doves, 16  ,, Moreover I would not permit anyone to carry goods Through the temple area.  Then I Began to teach them: "Does not Scripture say: 'My house will be called a house of prayer for all the people '? But You have turned it into' a den of thieves! ' "
The chief priests and the religious scholars Heard about this and Began looking for a way to destroy him. At the same time, fearful Because They Were the whole crowd was under the spell of His teaching.
The Good News of Jesus! 
Praise to you, Anointed One!

Reflection: Silvia Brandon Pérez, Spanish & amp; English


Anointing with Oil
The anointing of the sick is related to healing. Our elder brother found That the use of the church by the merchants was a sign of sickness. Today this illness of serving the master of money is prevalent THROUGHOUT the nations. The word today is a call to service, an anointing That We May be Strengthened to carry out our mission, as our elder brother did before us.

As we Receive the oil, we seek the Spirit's renewal and strength to work in life-affirming community for the healing of the wounds of injustice in Solidarity with our Latin American and Palestinian sisters and brothers, in fact, our sisters and brothers THROUGHOUT the world . God's love is all inclusive; everyone is welcome at the table, everyone is invited to anoint each other.



SONG: I Have Come to My Heart Offer   Fito Paez
Who Said That has now everything is lost,
I have eaten up my heart to offer.
So much blood washed down into the river,
I have eaten up my heart to offer.

It will not be so easy, I know what happens,
It will not be as easy as I'd imagined,
For the chest to open, the soul to come through,
With the sharpened blade of pure love.

Moon of all the poor that's always open,
I have eaten up my heart to offer.
In a document That can not be altered,
I have eaten up my heart to offer.

And I'll join the points of a single ribbon,
And I'll go so peaceful, so I'll go slowly,
And I'll give you all, and you'll give me something
Something That will help me to survive.

When there are no people here or elsewhere,
I have eaten to offer up my heart,
When the satellites can not reach us,
I have eaten to offer up my heart,

And I speak of nations, I speak of hoping,
And I speak for life, and for nothing also,
And it's about changing this our own house,
Changing just to change it, just because.

Who Said That has now everything is lost,
I have eaten up my heart to offer.

OPENING SONG
How beautiful on the mountains!
By Tom Paxton played by Charlie King

C GOLD :
How beautiful on the mountains,
are the steps you walk in peace !
How beautiful on the mountains,
are the steps you walk in peace !

Crossing the bridge in Selma marched side by side,
in Their Eyes a new world coming.
Peace in Their Hearts, and justice That it would not be denied.
And They sang, "someday we'll get through it."
God knows how brave They Were, and as Isaiah said:
(Choir)
Marching to Guantanamo,
or even to the Pentagon,
witnesses of peace in many lands,
proclaiming the truth against power, singing peace to Babylon
. hammering swords to plowshares into Their Own Hands
God knows how brave You Were, and you Isaiah said: ( chorus)


Now That Have the generations come together in This Way
With the wonder look in His eyes.
Now pass the torch to pick up the load,
now see Their Eyes on the prize.
God knows how brave you are, and as Isaiah said: (chorus )

Liturgy of the Word
First Reading
Clouds and illusions - by Cuban poet Silvia A. Brandon Pérez
    ¿ Talks with smoke clouds?
                      ~ The Book of Questions VII, P. Neruda            

A holiday in the embrace Between people,                
talk with clouds.                                                          
I rose from the crematorium,
there in Dachau or Auschwitz,
no matter the place or time,                                      
it was rather heavy smoke,                                                 
Composed of particles of dreams,                                     
the illusions of man, woman, child,
That at last on the earth there would be peace,                             
uncompromising happiness,
a holiday in the embrace Between people,                                                                       
Who Have Seen It All, nodded
high, big, serious, bare
the shy, skinny
The Little Ones With Her Carmelite heels
It came true, and clouds,                                                    
black, white, red, yellow,

New American Bible
Glory to you, O God!
 They came to Jerusalem; and entering Jesus in the temple and drive out Began to Those Who sold and bought in the temple; He overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of them That sold doves,  . and would not allow anyone to carry wares Through the temple And I Taught them, saying: "Is it not written, ' My house Shall be called a house prayer for all nations '? But You have made ​​it a den of thieves . "
The chief priests and the scribes Heard it and Sought how to destroy Jesus , but fear Him, Because all the crowd was astonished at His teaching.
The Good News of Jesus!
Praising you, O Jesus our brother!

Song: I come to offer my heart   Fito Paez
Who Said That I all is lost;
. I come to offer my heart
So much blood That the river was;
I come to offer my heart.

. It will not be easy, I know it happens
It will not be as easy as I thought;
how to open the chest and get the soul,
A stab of love.

Moon poor always open,
I come to offer my heart.
As an unalterable document;
I come to offer my heart.

And I will join the ends of the same loop
and go quiet I'll go slowly
And I will give everything and give me something,
anything That relieves me a little more.

When nothing is near or far,
I come to offer my heart.
When satellites do not reach
I come to offer my heart. And speaking of countries and hope for life I speak, I speak for nothing. I speak of esta change, our house to change to change no more.




Who Said That All is lost;
I come to offer my heart.
