Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

My friends, there are times in which we might be tempted to give up our faith, or stop praying to God, or despair of ever knowing God’s love again. Moses surely wondered about having enough stamina to keep his hands raised during the long drawn out battle. The widow probably had her share of doubts about ever getting through to this dishonest judge.  Today’s Scripture readings encourage us to persevere in faith and prayer because in the end, perseverance in the Lord’s grace overcomes any obstacle we may face in life, including any form of suffering and even death itself. The gospel today urges us to pray always, without becoming weary. This means we have to trust the Lord and be patient as we await his compassion… because it will come in God’s way and God’s time.
