That pesky widow













"This widow keeps bothering me"


Our Gospel reading for tomorrow (Luke 18:1-8) goes like this:


Jesus told the disciples a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart. He said, "In a certain city there was a judge who neither fared God nor had respect for people. In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying, 'Grant me justice against my opponent.' For a while he refused; but later he said to himself, 'Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, so that she may not wear me out by continually coming.'"

And the Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them? I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them. And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?"



What do you think -- will he?

I don't know, I know that I myself am trying not to lose heart. But when you pray so much and hear nothing.

I am obviously not listening because I am always told He is, and praying is the best we can do. So I keep praying!

I am obviously not listening, because I am told that He hears all and that praying is the best we can do. So I keep praying!
