The Boston Terrorist Attack
The recent terrorist attack against the participants in the Boston
Marathon is a tragic metaphor of living, one that is as old as a marathon
The runners were lovers and believers in life. They were running not
only to achieve temporary, if not eternal, glory; they did it also to support a
cause. Be it cancer research, diabetes, lung or heart disease, multiple
sclerosis, you name it, every stride they took on the road was also considered
a step towards finding a cure; their individual running pains and blisters a remedy
against human suffering. They had come from all over the world and if you
looked closer at the expressions on their faces, you would have noticed that
they were looking up, as though they were concentrated in a conversation with
God, whatever God meant for them.
On the other hand, there were the attackers, the crawlers. Those are
the ones who hide in the shadows, move slower and never look up, because the
brightness of the sun blinds their eyes and does not let them see the moral and
material insignificance of their lives. They
are the ones described by Henry David Thoreau as “living lives of quiet
desperation,” although there is nothing quiet about killing and maiming. They
have no cause other than hate because they cannot conceive or tolerate anything
else. In order to stop hating they would have to rise, stand up, start running and
leave behind the meaninglessness of their lives; a task made more difficult by
the forces of immoral gravity that characterize their existence. It was no coincidence either that the
explosions happened at the very end of the race where the winners and those who
rooted for them were concentrating to celebrate. Losers hate winners.
What is ironic is that the runners know who they are and why; the
crawlers have no clue and never will. As it was said in the very beginnings of
time, “let there be light.” The marathoners in Boston had heard the message and
were carrying an Olympic torch of hope for you and I and nothing will
In the next few days or weeks, the crawlers will hide in their dark
caves to lick their shame until sooner or later they are found and brought to
justice, a justice that will never be commensurate to their dastardly deeds.
The runners will get on their feet again, clean their physical and emotional
wounds and start to prepare for another marathon. But they will not have to prepare
to win this time, because they have already won.
The wings of the eagle may have been clipped, but they will grow back and
let it fly again.

"The Jesuit thing in all of this- Part II."
In my last
article I spoke about one of the positive aspects of the election of the new
Pope: his Hispanicism. Now I want to speak about the Society of Jesus part,
usually called the Jesuits, the other surprise I was talking about and in my
judgment more important than the first. I spent my elementary and all of my
high school years, ten in total, in a Jesuit educational institution. I believe
I have a personal perspective that might be helpful to us in looking at this
part of the Papal election...Continued)"

Jesuita en todo esto-Parte II."
En mi último artículo hablé de uno
de los aspectos positivos de la elección del nuevo Papa: Su hispanidad. Ahora
quiero hablar sobre la parte referente a la Sociedad de Jesús, usualmente
llamados Jesuitas, la otra sorpresa de la que comenté y que a mi juicio es más
importante que la primera. Yo pasé mi
educación elemental y todos los años de la escuela superior, diez en total, en
una institución educacional Jesuita. Creo que tengo una perspectiva personal
que podría ser útil para nosotros cuando miramos y analizamos este otro aspecto
de la elección Papal...Continúa
