Gospel Reflection for July 28, 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time

23 Jul

Jesus said, “Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.”

Luke 11.9

Jesus calls us in Sunday’s gospel to persevere in prayer. God is more gracious than a friend who reluctantly gets up in the night to help us. But God’s graciousness does not guarantee that we get what we think we want. We may not receive what we ask for; we may instead discover more than we were looking for or be surprised at what’s behind the door on which we are knocking.

What stories do you tell others of how you came to believe in God’s loving response to you?
