Memorial of Saint Josaphat, bishop and martyr

Infant Jesus, we place all our hope in you because you have redeemed the world by your death on the cross and by your victory over the grave. Help us to never lose sight of the goal of heaven that we may live each day in joyful anticipation of your return in glory. Amen.
  WORD OF THE DAY ...
Matthew 28:18-20: All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 18:1-8)
Jesus demonstrates how God as our Judge is much faster to bring us his justice, blessing, and assist when we need it. But we can effortlessly lose heart and forget to ask our heavenly Father for his blessings and help. Jesus told this parable to give fresh hope and confidence to his disciples. Jesus ends his parable with a probing question for us. Do we have faith - the faith that continues to the end - when Jesus comes back in glory to judge the living and the dead? Faith is a completely free gift that God compile to us. If we want to live, grow, and continue in faith and waiting the end, then we must nurture our faith with the word of God and ask the Lord to increase it. What can a shameless and unjust judge pitted against a crusty and pestering woman teach us about justice and vindication in the kingdom of God? Jesus tells a story that is all too true – a defenseless widow is taken advantaged of and refused her rights. Through sheer persistence she wears down an unscrupulous judge until he gives her justice. Persistence pays off, and that's especially true for those who trust in God. When examination and setbacks disappoint you, where do we place our hope? Do we pray with hopeful faith and confidence in God's merciful care and providence for us? There is reward.
