SEPTEMBER 30, 2010

JOB 19:21-27
Pity me, pity me, my friends, since I have been struck by the hand of
God. Must you persecute me just as God does, and give my body no
peace? Will no one let my words be recorded, inscribed on some
monument with iron chisel and engraving tool, cut into the rock for
ever? I know that I have a living Defender and that he will rise up
last, on the dust of the earth. After my awakening, he will set me
close to him, and from my flesh I shall look on God. He whom I shall
see will take my part: my eyes will be gazing on no stranger. My heart
sinks within me.

LUKE 10:1-12
After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them out
ahead of him in pairs, to all the towns and places he himself would be
visiting. And he said to them, 'The harvest is rich but the laborers
are few, so ask the Lord of the harvest to send laborers to do his
harvesting. Start off now, but look, I am sending you out like lambs
among wolves. Take no purse with you, no haversack, no sandals. Salute
no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, let your first words be,
"Peace to this house!" And if a man of peace lives there, your peace
will go and rest on him; if not, it will come back to you. Stay in the
same house, taking what food and drink they have to offer, for the
laborer deserves his wages; do not move from house to house. Whenever
you go into a town where they make you welcome, eat what is put before
you. Cure those in it who are sick, and say, "The kingdom of God is
very near to you." But whenever you enter a town and they do not make
you welcome, go out into its streets and say, "We wipe off the very
dust of your town that clings to our feet, and leave it with you. Yet
be sure of this: the kingdom of God is very near." I tell you, on the
great Day it will be more bearable for Sodom than for that town.

One challenge some Jesuits undergo in their formation training is to
go on a week-long pilgrimage to a Marian shrine with a fellow Jesuit
sans money and packed food. All these two friends have is enough funds
for water for each day of travel, and for cell phone load, so that
they can text their superior on the progress of their journey. Along
the way, they have to literally rely on the kindness of strangers so
that they may get something to eat or find a place to rest. Perhaps, a
bus or jeepney stop possibly becomes their shelter for the night. They
might also be unable to find a generous soul willing to sponsor a meal
for them. All this is necessary to build their trust in what our Lord
provides for that day in whatever form it arrives. Almost always, they
arrive at their destination fatigued physically, but nourished

Called to be part of God's team, we should continually trust that He
will take care of all our needs. After all, we're with Jesus who gave
his very life for us. If he could give himself to us completely, how
can we not respond likewise with complete and utter dependence on his
