Our readings for Sunday, October 20, are: Jeremiah 31:27-34; Psalm 119:97-104; 2 Timothy 3:14-4:5; Luke 18:1-8.
“Pray always and don’t lose heart.” Probably Jesus spoke from personal experience, as the gospels tell us that he often turned to prayer in difficult times, times when he was tempted to lose heart. Let’s remember to do the same
