REFLECTIONS
Rev. Edward Aigner, Jr.
KEEP PRAYING
St. Monica, whose feast we celebrate in August, is often
known as “the persistent mother.” She watched her oldest
son, Augustine, turn his back on his Christian faith.
Monica was exasperated. For years she gave up talking
directly to her son on the advice of a local bishop, who told
her that it was better to talk to God about Augustine then to
Augustine about God.
The mother never gave up praying for her son. Eventually
Augustine gave up his wild ways, was baptized, and later
ordained and named bishop of Hippo. St. Augustine went on
to become one of the Church’s greatest scholars.
Today’s readings address the importance of persistent
prayer. Abraham, in spite of trepidation that he is bothering
the Lord, continues to ask about the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah. Jesus, in Luke’s Gospel, tells his disciples to “ask
and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the
door will be opened to you” (Luke 11:9). This is our charge:
keep praying.

REFLEJOS
SIGUE REZANDO
Santa Mónica, cuya fiesta celebramos en agosto, se conoce
generalmente como “la madre persistente”. Ella vio como su
hijo mayor, Agustín, le daba la espalda a su fe cristiana.
Mónica estaba exasperada. Durante años se dio por vencida de hablar directamente a su hijo siguiendo el consejo de
un obispo de la región que le dijo que era mejor hablar con
Dios sobre Agustín que con Agustín sobre Dios.
La madre nunca dejó de rezar por su hijo. Finalmente,
Agustín abandonó su rebeldía, fue bautizado y luego ordenado y nombrado obispo de Hipona. San Agustín se convirtió
en uno de los eruditos más importantes de la Iglesia.
Las lecturas de hoy destacan la importancia de la oración
persistente. Abraham, a pesar de temer molestar al Señor,
continúa preguntándole sobre el destino de Sodoma y Gomorra. Jesús, en el Evangelio según san Lucas, le dice a sus
discípulos “pidan y se les dará, busquen y encontrarán, toquen y se les abrirá” (Lucas 11:9). Esta es nuestra tarea: seguir rezando.
Cross Catholic Outreach
Father Edward of Cross Catholic Outreach will be visiting our
parish next weekend to speak at all the Masses on behalf of the
poor in developing countries. Cross Catholic Outreach was
founded to create a meaningful link between parishes in America and the Priests and nuns working in the Church overseas in
the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Central and South America.
Father Edward, a priest of the Roman Catholic Church of Wilmington (DE), was ordained in May, 1972.
