SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL Luke 18:1-8  

The purpose of prayer is not to change God’s mind but to change ourselves, and we can be slow to move.  When have you found that persistence in prayer strengthened your faith in the presence of God with you in that struggle?

The context of the story may be a concern about the delay in the final coming of the Lord.  Have there been times when your persistence in prayer, or in action, was eventually rewarded after a period when you had doubts about the outcome?  What, for you, have been the fruits of persistent prayer?

Behind the story lies the final question of Jesus:  Who does have faith? Who have been models of faith and trust in God for you?  How has the trust been shown in yours?


ST GERARD MAJELLA – FEAST DAY OCTOBER 16

St Gerard Majella was an Italian lay brother of the Congregation of the Redeemer. He was born on April 6 1726 in Muro Lucano, Italy and is the Patron Saint of expectant mothers, motherhood and children.


PERSEVERANCE IN PRAYER

The readings today are very central to our lives and our expectations from prayer.  What goes hand in hand with prayer is faith, which gets prayer working.  

The society in which we live is mostly about instant results, food, heating etc. but the fruits of prayer are not always instant.  Unless we set aside a regular time to pray we probably will not pray at all.  Sometimes our most needy prayer comes from our own broken spirits.  Our life is a journey and prayer is the oil that gets us through the most difficult times.  

While we don’t always raise our hands in prayer like Moses, we do value the support of those who help us to persevere. (Ex. 17:12-13)

I feel like the persistent widow sometimes, coming back to God time after time with my many needs: Who do I go to if not to Him?  Delays happen, but as Timothy says God may allow it to happen in order “to reprove, correct and train us in holiness, so that we may be fully equipped for every good work” (2 Tim. 3:16)

We pray today that our hearts are prepared to receive His gifts when he chooses. (T. Hume)


POPE FRANCIS’ MISSION PRAYER

Heavenly Father,

When your only son Jesus Christ

Rose from the dead,

He commissioned his followers

to ‘go and make disciples of all nations’

and you remind us through our Baptism

we are made sharers in the mission of the Church.

 

Empower us by the gifts of the Holy Spirit

to be courageous and zealous

in bearing witness to the Gospel,

so the mission entrusted to the Church, 

which is still very far from completion,

may find new and efficacious expressions

that bring life and light to the world.

 

Help us make it possible for all peoples

to experience the saving love

and mercy of Jesus Christ,

who lives and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

One God, forever and ever.

Amen.
