30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

October 27, 2013

OUR STRENGTH IS OUR WEAKNESS

This Sunday, I find great comfort in our readings.   We continue our theme of perseverance from last week.

We hear in our first reading from Sirach, that the prayer of the lowly does not rest until it reaches its goal; that God knows no favorites.

In Paul’s letter to Timothy, he writes that he has finished the race because the Lord stood by him and gave him strength.  And in the Gospel, we are reminded that God’s mercy and grace is available to everyone.

But we are also cautioned about the dangers of religion.  How easy it is for our strength to also become our weakness.
