he story of the widow
pestering the judge
for justice in today’s gospel
cannot fail to amuse. The
poor woman (widows were
on the bottom rung of society because of their economic status) must have
worn the (important) judge
down over time. Judges did
not work in buildings; they
set up their court
in a tent that travelled around their
region, rather like
our Assizes. So
every time he
turned up at a
new place and
pitched his tent,
there she was!
Eventually he
decided to do something
just for a quiet life. And it’s
her persistence in prayer
that Jesus praises.
eing persistent in
prayer is probably
one of the greatest challenges facing us as Christians. It’s easy not to pray.
We can claim we’re busy
doing good and don’t have
the time. We can say that
we never seem to get an
answer and so what’s the
point? We can look back on
things we asked for that
never materialised and so
wonder whether God is
really bothered by our prayer at all.

Refugee Solidarity Pilgrimage
Saturday 29th October 2-4.30p.m
Next Sunday
World Mission Sunday
Please join us and members of other
Churches as we walk from Our Lady of
the Rosary Buckley to St David's Mold.
To show solidarity with the refugees and
migrants we will carry a ‘Lampedusa’
cross -a simple cross made from the wood
of a refugee boat. At each stage we will
reflect on the causes of migration and displacement of people. Listen to their own
stories, and pray for a safe refuge for all
refugees and migrants.
Next weekend, the Holy Father invites all
Catholics to contribute to a special collection
(at the door) for Missio (formerly the APF),
his official charity for overseas mission.
“World Mission Sunday” is a special day that
unites Catholics all over the world in prayer,
celebration and care for the mission of the
Church. By supporting World Mission Sunday you are already helping missionaries in
Rwanda and around the world to help heal
the broken hearted. You will be able to gift
aid all donations by using envelopes provided
by Missio.
Refreshments, information stall and cards
to send a message of hope and solidarity
to a refugee all available at St David's Hall
at the end of the pilgrimage.
The ‘Lampedusa ‘cross will be presented
at the 5.30p.m. Mass.
Please be aware you will be responsible
for your own safety.

Fairtrade Shop
The Fair trade shop is up and running again at
the back of church. We have the usual items of
tea, coffee, sweets, chocolate, biscuits, dried
fruit and sugars amongst other things. There
are catalogues available, we will happily order
Christmas cards and other goods for you. The
Fair trade mark means that the producers get a
guaranteed price for their goods. They also get
a premium that allows them to grow their businesses and to fund projects for the good of
their communities.

Persistent Prayer
There is a difference between being a pest
and being persistent, although externally they
may appear to be the same. It is a matter of a
difference in motivation. When we pester we
want our way and on our own timetable.
When we persist we want the right way, God’s
way, and are willing to wait until the most possible good can be accomplished. God can use
injustice and its ill effects to motivate people
to change. If more people will be advantaged
by the “delay,” God will most probably “delay”
so that that might happen. God does not force
justice on people, though people might do so.
He wants people to do what is right because it
is right, not because of the “might,” of the
commander. Pestering God, or anyone, says,
“Give me what I want.” Persisting in prayer
says, “Give me what you want.”
