5.56 Lazarus falls ill and dies. (Jn 11, 1-46)
There was a patient, Lázaro de Betania, Maria's village and Marten, his sister. She was Maria that me ungió
with his perfume and wiped the feet with your own hairs, which brother Lázaro was sick. The Lazarus's sisters sent to me, then, a message, saying: “Señor
, which mistresses is sick ”.
Ear this I said: “Esta illness is not for death, but for God's glory, in order that by her the God's Son is glorified ”.
I was estimating to Marten, to Maria and to his brother Lázaro. And ear this message I stayed still two days in the place where we were; then after that I said to my disciples: "We go to the Judea again ”. Dícenme
my disciples: “Maestro
, now the Jews were trying to stone you: and again do you go there? ”
I answered them: “: Are there no twelve the hours of the day? If one walks in the daytime, it does not stumble, because it sees the light of this world; more if one walks at night, it stumbles, because he lacks the light ”.
After this I said to them: “Lázaro, our friend, he has fallen asleep, but I am going to wake up him ”. Dijéronme
, then, my disciples: “Señor
, if he sleeps it will recover ”.
I had spoken to them about his death, more they thought that he was speaking about the natural sleep. Then I said to them openly: “Lázaro he died, and I am glad for you not to have been there, so that you believe. But we go to him ”.
Tomás said, then, the called Dídimo
, to the disciples: “Vamos
also we to die with ”.
Come, then, I found to him that it was taking already four days in the tomb. Betania
was close to Jerusalem, as to approximately fifteen stadiums. Many of the Jews had come to Marten and to Maria to give them the condolence of his brother. Marten, then, as well as it heard that I was coming, it went to find me; Maria, as, was staying at home. Díjome
, then, Marten: “Señor
, if you were here, my brother would not have died; nevertheless, now I know that all for that you will ask God, God will grant it to you ”.
I said to him: “Resucitará your brother ”.
It was she who answered me: “Sé
that will resuscitate when the universal resurrection of last day ”.
I answered him: “Yo am the resurrection and the life; the one who creates in me even if he dies, will live; and everything the one that lives and believes in me, will not die forever. Do you believe this? ”
, Gentleman; I believe that You are the Messiah, the God's Son, which comes to the world ”.
Having said this, it went away and called secretly Maria, his sister, saying: “El
Teacher is here and calls you ”.
She, since she heard it, got up to the moment and came towards me. There was not yet I gone over to the village, but it was still in the place where Marten had found me. The Jews, then, who were with her in the house and were consoling it, seeing that Maria got up of ready and went out, they continued after her, thinking that it was going to the tomb to cry there. Maria, then, how did it come where I was, in meeting me began to the feet, saying to me: “Señor
, if you were here, the brother would not have died ”.
So I saw her crying, as also there were crying the Jews who with her had come, I trembled in my Spirit and perturbed handyman: “: Where have you put him? ”
They said to me: “Señor
, come and you will see it ”. Lloré…
y was saying the Jews: “Mira
since he loved him. Could not East, which opened the eyes of the blind person, do that also this one was not dying? ”
I trembled again in my interior and went to the tomb. This was a cave, on which there was a put flagstone. I said: “Quitad the stone ”. Díjome
, already it smells badly, that is dead of four days ”.
I looked at it saying to him: “: Did not I say to you that, if you will believe, you will see the God's glory? ”
They removed, then, the stone. I lifted the eyes to the sky saying: “Padre …, thank you I give to you because me oíste. I already knew that you always hear me; more I said it for the crowd that surrounds me, in order that they believe that You sent me ”.
And saying this with powerful voice I cried out: “: Lazarus come out!! ”
And there went out the tied deceased of feet and hands with blindfolds, and his face was wrapped in a shroud. I said to them: “Desatadle and allow him to walk ”.
Many, then, of the Jews who had come to Maria's house, seeing what I did, they believed in me. More some of between them they went away to the Pharisees and told them what I had done. (123) The word “glorificado ” only evangelista Saint John uses it. It will allude of her up to 12 times of which 8 will be in mouth of the same Christ. This is a forceful test of Jesus's divinity, which is expert in the facts before they come to happen. Jesus shows that the first cause of the illness, which will take to the death his friendly Lazarus, is not purely physiological, has his meaning of life by virtue of the glorification that he will suppose for Christ carrying out the resurrection of a corpse in decomposition.
(124) This phrase cannot be understood, as his disciples would not understand it, if there is not known the end of the drama at which next we are present. To the requests of Marten and Maria, Christ could not refuse and he had treated his friend before the death was separating it of the alive ones in this world. It is glad because he knows what is going to happen and in his scale of divine evaluation it makes us understand that this is his biggest miracle (apart from your own resurrection), the only miracle of the one that says, He itself, that it is executed for His glory. East is, finally, the brooch of the divine Taumaturgo with which he tries to consolidate the faith of his disciples. Now it is going to pronounce unheard-of words, words never heard to no other possible man, God's words that demand the Faith of that queriendo to believe we are witnesses of this obvious and marvelous miracle that credits the divinity of Jesus Christ.
(125) Reading friend, reading friend: what man can assume veracity in these words and by virtue of what? With the baggage that Christ brings from the prodigies that we have contemplated till now, these words are to believe by virtue of the authority of the one who pronounces them, but them to stop believing it is necessary to wait for a few minutes, which they continue. My ears have taken to my intelligence a few words of superhuman power, me eyes are fixed in the figure of the Man who pronounces them and a bit further on, I see this Man weeping for the death of his friend, but the attention that paid this Jesus Hombre it takes me to the state of maximum tension when I hear him ordering to withdraw the stone of the tomb. What proposes to itself to do? I am located between the astonished crowd that does not lose detail in a rigorous silence. There are heard the words of a Son, which I see, speaking to a Father, that I do not see. Suddenly there is heard a scream that shakes the soul to us: Lazarus go out out!! Our eyes go with stupor towards the pit where we know that a corpse lies in the putrid state and they contemplate a man, that we had seen deceased, which he begins to walk when they take the bandages from him.
(I have read and have understood, I am before the Man whom I recognize as my “Señor and my God ”. From now on I proceed to read the Gospel, this Autobiography, with supreme abandonment of the potency of who they define me as who I am as I am in the blessed hands of my God, of a God whom I will see Crucified and Resuscitated. A God to whom I can say: “Amado mine ”).
