Daily Gospel Reflection – November 23, 2022

Wednesday of the Thirty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time 

Gospel: Lk 21:12-19 

Jesus said to the crowd: “They will seize and persecute you, they will hand you over to the synagogues and to prisons, and they will have you led before kings and governors because of my name. It will lead to your giving testimony. Remember, you are not to prepare your defense beforehand, for I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking that all your adversaries will be powerless to resist or refute. You will even be handed over by parents, brothers, relatives, and friends, and they will put some of you to death. You will be hated by all because of my name, but not a hair on your head will be destroyed. By your perseverance you will secure your lives.” 
*United States Conference of Catholic 

Bishop Robert Barron 

Friends, in today’s Gospel, the Lord cautions us to expect persecution until the end of time: “They will seize and persecute you, they will hand you over to the synagogues and to prisons, and they will have you led before kings and governors.” When will the Church stop being persecuted? When the Lord returns, and not before. 

None of the saints lived a serene life, a life free of worry, threat, persecution. It always strikes me as odd that somehow it is assumed that those who believe in God expect their lives to be a bowl of cherries. Absolutely nothing in the Bible or in the great tradition of the Church should lead us to expect this.

Instead, the saints found courage in the struggle. The Lord himself promised to prepare them for their defense. “I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking that all your adversaries will be powerless to resist or refute.” Their courage got them through the negativity. I’m reminded of a verse from an Eva Cassidy song: “No storm can shake my inmost calm, while to that rock I’m clinging. Since love is Lord of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing?”
