The name RISEN CHRIST expresses in a better way the unique character of the Easter event. We believe in a Risen Christ. We believe that He is alive and that we have a relationship with God through Him. Our Church stands as a permanent witness to such a faith.

SUNDAY REFLECTIONS

Be persistent in prayer

20 October 2019 ( 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time )

[ Exodus 17:8-13] [ 2 Timothy 3:14--4:2] [ Luke 18:1-8 ]

To succeed at anything, we need to have persistence. In this week’s readings, we see two incidents that illustrate the virtue of persistence. The first is the poor widow who appealed to a judge for justice. When the judge did not give it to her, she badgered him until he gave in and gave her the justice she had demanded. In the second incident, Moses instructed Joshua to fight the Amelekites while he stood on the hill and lifted the staff of God in his hands, symbolising his allegiance to God. As long as he kept his hands raised, the Israelites would gain the upper hand. But whenever he tired and dropped his hands, the Amelekites would turn the tables on the Israelites. So, Moses enlisted Aaron and Hur to prop up his arms. With that, the Israelites went on to score a spectacular victory over their enemies. God is not unreasonable or fickle like the human judge. God is a loving Father who wants only the best for each of us, His children, but He wants us to be consistent in our relationship with Him.
