DG BookGospel: Luke 18:1-8
Jesus told them a parable, to show them that they should pray continually, and not
lose heart. He said, “In a certain town there was a judge, who neither feared God nor
people. In the same town there was a widow, who kept coming to him, saying, ‘Defend

my rights against my adversary!’ For a time he refused, but finally he thought, ‘Even though I neither
fear God nor care about people, this widow bothers me so much, I will see that she gets justice; then
she will stop coming and wearing me out.” And Jesus said, “Listen to what the evil judge says. Will
God not do justice for his chosen ones, who cry to him day and night, even if he delays in answering
them? I tell you, he will speedily do them justice. But, when the Son of Man comes, will he find
faith on earth?”

Reflect:

Prayer is as essential as breath for a soul. Reflecting on the spiritual journey, 13th century mystic St.
Angela of Foligno underlines the need for sustained prayer thus: “No one can be saved without divine
light. Divine light causes us to begin and to make progress, and it leads us to the summit of perfection.
Therefore, if you want to begin and to receive this divine light, pray. If you have begun to make progress,
pray. And if you have reached the summit of perfection, and want to be super-illumined so as to remain
in that state, pray. If you want faith, pray. If you want hope, pray. If you want charity, pray. If you want
poverty, pray. If you want obedience, pray. If you want chastity, pray. If you want humility, pray. If you
want meekness, pray. If you want fortitude, pray. If you want any virtue, pray.”
