Next Sunday, 16th October is the 29th Sunday of the Year. In this week’s Sunday Bible Reflection, Scott Hahn reminds us that like the Israelites and the widow in Sunday’s Gospel, we face opposition and injustice—at times from godless and pitiless adversaries. We, too, must lift our eyes to the mountains—to Calvary and the God who will guard us from all evil. We must pray always and not be wearied by our trials, Jesus tells us today. As Paul exhorts in the second reading, we need to remain faithful, to turn to the inspired Scriptures—given by God to train us in righteousness. We must persist, so that when the Son of Man comes again in kingly power, He will indeed find faith on earth.
