SUNDAY REFLECTIONS

Hope for the Hopeless

Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time ( 24 October 2021 )

[ Jeremiah 31:7-9 , Psalms 126:1-6 , Mark 10:46-52 ]

It’s quite alright for us to lack something, knowing that by working a bit harder we will soon be able to afford to buy it. And it’s alright for us to suffer some sickness when we have the medicine to cure us, or if we know that the sickness will naturally run its course in a week. But it’s terrible to be in a state of hopelessness – to know that we can work our bones for the rest of our lives but we’ll never be able to pull ourselves out of poverty. Or that our sickness is incurable. God provides us with a lifeline when He said in Jeremiah 31:9: “With weeping they shall come, and with consolations I will lead them back, I will make them walk by brooks of water, in a straight path in which they shall not stumble; for I am a father to Israel …” And in the Gospel passage, Jesus displays his willingness to reach out to people, like the blind man Bartimaeus, to lift them out of their hopeless situations. All we need to do is to put our faith in Jesus.

绝望中制造希望

尽管挑战苦难让人心灰气馁,若有明确的奋斗目标,守得云开见月明不过是等待熬过时机的事情。然而绝望却是无止境的痛苦深渊,因为我们自己的努力很可能终究徒劳无功。对此,天主就曾慰藉先知耶肋米亞,耶稣亦治好耶里哥的瞎子巴爾提買。再绝望的处境耶稣都能反转,让我们以坚定信念冀望天主!
