  • vangélio according to San Juan 11, 1-45. There was a sick man, Lázaro de Betania, of the town of Mary and her sister Marta. Maria was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and dried her feet with her hair. His brother Lazarus was who was ill. The sisters sent to Jesus: "Lord, who you love, is sick". On hearing this, Jesus said: "this disease is not fatal; It is for the glory of God, that the son of God may be glorified through it." Jesus loved Martha, her sister, and Lazarus. However, when he heard that he was sick, he stayed two days more in the place where it was. Then he said to his disciples: "Go back to Judea". The disciples said to him: "teacher, recently Jews wanted to stone you, would you like to return?". Jesus answered: "not are twelve hours of the day? Which walking day does not stumble, because it sees the light of this world; on the other hand, he who walks at night stumbles, because the light is not in him". Then he added: "our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I'm going to wake him up". His disciples said to him: "Lord, if he sleeps, will heal". They thought that it talked about the dream, but Jesus was referring to the death. Then said openly: "Lazarus is dead, and I am glad you have not been there, so they create. We are going to see it". Thomas, called the twin, told the other disciples: "Let's go also us to die with him". When Jesus came, he met that Lazarus was buried four days earlier. Bethany was just three kilometers from Jerusalem. Many Jews had gone to console Martha and Mary, by the death of his brother. To learn of Jesus arrived, Marta came out to meet, while Maria remained in the House. Martha said to Jesus: "Lord, if you had been here, my brother not would have died. But I know that even now, Dios will grant you whatever you ask." Jesus said to him: "your brother will rise again". Marta replied: "I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection of the last day". Jesus said to him: "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me, though he die, shall live; and whoever lives and believes in me, won't ever die. Do you think this? "." She replied: "Yes, Sir, I believe that you are the Christ, the son of God, which should come into the world". Then he called Mary, her sister, and said softly: "The master is here and calls you". Heard this, she rose quickly and went to their meeting. Jesus had not yet reached the village, but he was on the same site where Marta had found him. The Jews who were in the House comforting Mary, seeing that this suddenly got up and went out, followed her, thinking I was going to the Tomb to weep there. Mary came where Jesus was and saw him, fell at his feet and said to him: "Lord, if you had been here, my brother not would have died". Jesus, seeing her mourn her, and also the Jews who were accompanying her, shaken and distraught, asked: "Where were you?". Said to him: "Come, Lord, and you will see it". And Jesus wept. The Jews said: "how you loved!". But some said: "That opened the eyes of the man born blind, not could prevent that Lazarus died?". Jesus, stirring again, came to the Tomb, which was a cave with a stone over, and said: "Take away the stone". Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to him: "Lord, smells bad; already four days ago that he is dead". Jesus said to him: "Do I told you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?". Then removed the stone, and Jesus, looking up to heaven, he said: "father, I thank you that I heard. I know that you always hear me, but I've told by these people surrounding me, that they may believe that you have sent me". After saying this, cried with a loud voice: 'Lazarus, come out!'. The dead came out with feet and hands bound with bandages, and his face wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them: "Untie it so you can walk". To see what Jesus did, many of the Jews who had come to Mary's House believed in him.
