Gospel: Luke 18:1-8
Jesus told them a parable, to show them that they should pray continually, and not lose heart. He said, “In a certain town there was a judge, who neither feared God nor people. In the same town there was a widow, who kept coming to him, saying, ‘Defend my rights against my adversary!’ For a time he refused, but finally he thought, ‘Even though I neither fear God nor care about people, this widow bothers me so much, I will see that she gets justice; then she will stop coming and wearing me out.”And Jesus said, “Listen to what the evil judge says. Will God not do justice for his chosen ones, who cry to him day and night, even if he delays in answering them? I tell you, he will speedily do them justice. But, when the Son of Man comes, will he find

faith on earth?”

Lectio Divina
READ: The perseverance of Moses in the first reading in raising his hands holding God’s staff, a gesture of prayer, led to the victory of Joshua and his companions. The same lesson on perse- verance is contained in the gospel reading; it will  lead to answered prayers. These stories from Sacred Scrip- tures should instruct and teach our life of faith.
REFLECT: Prayer is  central to our Christian life. St. Paul tells us (1 Thes.5:17) “pray without ceasing” which is another way of saying perse- vere in prayer. But we must understand this nuance: perseverance in prayer is not demanding in prayer. While we pray to God for help, we leave to God’s will to send to us the kind of help that he deems best. Many have been blessed with the realization of this insight. God does not always give what we ask for, but not one who approaches him in prayer left empty- handed.
PRAY: Lord, help me surren- der to your will in my prayers.
ACT: Help someone in need today. Be God’s instrument. Be the answer to his/her prayer.
