REFLECTION

Last Sunday we were reminded of the need for gratitude; today’s parable encourages us to keep asking for what we need even if God does not answer our requests immediately. The Christian must be like the widow who pesters until she wins her case. We do not know why God delays; but when judgement is given, Jesus promises, it will be given quickly. The lesson in the first reading is also striking: we must persevere! The second reading calls for another kind of perseverance, fidelity to the truth of the Christian tradition . Scripture challenges us to fidelity and growth in holiness.
