Reflection for the 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time, by S. Rose O’Brien, OSF

Luke 17:5-10First Reading: Habakkuk 1:2-3; 2:2-4
Second Reading: 2 Timothy 1:6-8, 13-14
Gospel: Luke 17:5-10

Reflection
What do we do when we experience hardships, trouble and misery?  Habakkuk complains to God directly about the destruction and misery he sees around him.  God replies that the vision still has its time and if it delays, wait for it and it will not disappoint.
What do we do when we experience hardships, trouble and misery?  We believe that God is with us always and we pray…
Prayer
Come Lord Jesus, strengthen and console us in our faith and love.  Stir into flame again the Holy Spirit who dwells within us as we wait and we will not be disappointed.  Amen.
Rose O’Brien, osf
