St. Ann Holy Picture

 

TODAY (White) Gn 18:20-32; Col 2:12-14; Lk 11:1-13

NEXT WEEK (Green) Eccl 1:2; 2:21-23; Col 3:1-5, 9-11; Lk 12:13-21

Ancient Judaism held in highest regard those figures in its tradition who were willing to challenge God. This was particularly characteristic of the two patriarchs most highly esteemed, Abraham and Moses. This boldness in addressing God is present in today’s story from Genesis, when Abraham attempted to save the cities of Sodom and Gomorra. This resonates with the Gospel passage—the Lord’s Prayer—since it was truly bold of Jesus to address the Lord God as “Abba.” Our familiarity with this prayer most likely makes us aware of this. The boldness of Abraham and Moses, and Jesus in addressing God is an expression of a deep, intimate relationship with God.
