St Elizabeth of Hungary (M)

2 Maccabees 7:1, 20-31; Psalm 17;
Luke 19:11-28.


Stories of negotiation and entreaty. Stories of trust and doing the right thing. Stories taken from the real world to illustrate the point. Stories of disrespect and intrigue. Stories that could apply as well today as they did thousands of years ago. Perhaps it is the psalm that best shows us what we need to ask of God to ensure we are just, with no deceit. The reward for following a path of justice will be seeing the glory of God.
