How much more…

October 6, 2016 7:43 am

“If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?” (LK 11: 13)

Luke presents three episodes concerned with prayer. The first, which we read yesterday, recounted Jesus teaching his disciples the Christian communal prayer, the “Our Father”; today we hear the second—about the importance of persistence in prayer and the third—about the effectiveness of prayer. Whatever we receive from Him is always much, much more, than we can expect because His love is total and unconditional.

“Open our hearts, O Lord, to listen to the words of your Son.” (Gospel Acclamation)
