Sunday Reflection – 16 October 2022

TWENTY-NINTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Also Read: Mass Readings for 16 October 2022 Homily for 16 October 2022 – Sunday

First Reading: Exodus 17: 8-13

(v.12-13) When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.

We must remember, Our God fights our battles for us. “The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” (Exodus14:14) We only need to go to him on bended knees. 

Amen!

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 121: 1-8

(v.5-7) The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

Amen!

Second Reading: Second Timothy 3: 14 – 4: 2

(v.2)Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. 

We as Disciples of Christ must preach His word, through our words and actions. For this, we must be disciplined in all our ways – spiritual, personal, and professional. We are warned by Peter in 1Pet 5:8 that the enemy prowls about and the best method to handle this deceiving one is our discipline!

In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Gospel: Luke 18: 1-8

(v.1) Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.

God speaks to us about persistence in our lives. We must be persistent in prayer! Jas 4:7 says, “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” This gives us an insight into how we can be persistent.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
