OCTOBER 20, 2019: XXIX SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

We tend to think of prayer as an individual, personal phenomenon. But the first reading suggests that prayer can be communal. Moses did not go alone to the top of the hill to raise his arms in supplication to God. He was accompanied by two friends. Aaron and Hur, who eventually supported his arms when Moses tired. All three together lifted their arms to God. In the Gospel Jesus tells his disciples, "Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night?" (Luke 18:7). In the light of the parable of the dishonest judge, this suggests that if several people persist in asking for the same thing, God will see that justice is done. "Keep in touch!" we call out when saying goodbye to a friend we only see occasionally. Jesus, knowing that the day would come when he would be separated from his disciples, could not do the same. Throughout his life, Jesus continually prayed to his Father. This was the way that he was able to keep in touch. Moreover, he was providing a model to his disciples. Through constant and persistent prayer, his disciples could continue to keep in touch. "Be persistent," Paul charges Timothy in proclaiming God's word, "whether it is convenient or inconvenient" (2 Timothy 4:2). It is not always an easy task, even when it is convenient, but when it is inconvenient it becomes quite a challenge. Yet it is our mission, as disciples, to proclaim God's word, especially when it is inconvenient. Today, on World Mission Sunday, let us commit ourselves to persist in proclaiming God's word even when it is difficult.

World Mission Sunday - This Weekend, October 19 & 20, 2019

It’s World Mission Sunday!
