Twenty-Ninth Sunday of Ordinary Time

Exodus 17:8-13, Ps.121, 2 Timothy 3:14-4:2, Luke 18:1-8


Poor old Moses! He had to keep his arms raised to heaven. As soon as he let them droop, the enemy got the better of his troops. Just as well two tribesmen came along to prop him up. In the context of today’s gospel reading, this is about persistence, doing what has to be done, no matter how difficult it is or how long it takes. But here we can add another thought - thanks for the good friends who prop us up when we are weary. Persistence can be a blessing, but one that is best shared.
