Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus illustrates how God as our Judge is much quicker to bring us his justice, blessing, and help when we need it. But we can easily lose heart and forget to ask our Heavenly Father for his grace and help. Jesus told this parable to give fresh hope and confidence to his disciples. In this present life we can expect trials and adversity, but we are not without hope in God. The Last Judgment will reveal that God's justice triumphs over all the injustices perpetrated by his creatures and that God's love is stronger than death. The just can look forward with hope to that day when they will receive their reward. Jesus ends his parable with a probing question for us. Will you and I have faith the faith that perseveres to the end of time when Jesus returns in glory to judge the living and the dead? Faith is an entirely free gift that God makes to us. If we want to live, grow, and persevere in the faith until the end, then we must nourish it with the word of God and ask the Lord to increase it. When trials and setbacks disappoint you, where do you place your hope? Do you pray with expectant faith and confidence in God's merciful care and providence for you?
Word of the Day...
Psalm 51:12Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, we long for the outbreak of joy in your salvation like we see in the book of Acts. We pray for your Spirit to lead us into another era of outreach, conversion, and celebration. We pray for wisdom to know and for eyes to see those around us who are most open to the Gospel. In Infant Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
