Thirty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

Gustav Dore “The Beatific Vision”

In this life, it is a special joy to know you are a friend of God.

How do God’s friends behave?

  • They pray.
  • They tell the truth.
  • They persevere in doing God’s will.

What do God’s friends expect from God? God’s friends expect God’s justice:

  • That he will do as he has promised.
  • That he will hear their prayers.
  • That he will love and protect them.
  • That he will show himself to them.
  • That he will raise them from the dead: “I in justice shall behold your face; on waking I shall be content in your presence.”
