29th Sunday in Ordinary Time
October 17, 2010
"The Lord said, "Will not God then
secure the rights of God’s chosen ones
who call out to God day and night?"
The judge in today’s parable cannot be taken
as representing God, for he
"neither feared God nor respected any human being."
But, can we see in the widow an image of our God?
She is a persistent voice for justice for the poor and
those without voice in our society.
Like our God, she will not stop
her cry for justice until it is given.
The guarantee of one's prayer is not in
saying a lot of words.
The guarantee of one's petition is very easy to know.
How do I treat the poor?
Because that is where God is.
Archbishop Oscar Romero
