At the end of another hastily passing week, it is good to be able to send out our weekly Newsletter and the Readings for Holy Mass this weekend.
The character of the persistent widow in the Gospel text reminds us all of the virtue of the daily conversations we have with Almighty God, better known as prayer. Personally, I am not really sure what has the most value: what is spoken and shared or the ability we have to both speak and listen. Perhaps it is answered in the final statement of the Gospel, when Jesus asks when He returns will He find any faith. Our gift of conversation with God clearly is the hope that indeed He will discover faith still present!
May we all be united by prayer, bringing each other into the presence and heart of God through our remembrances and affection.
As ever, Fr. Nicholas
