Readings for today’s Mass
The whole of the story of Job would be a most depressing read were it not for his unflinching fidelity to God. He never cursed God to his face. In all this Job did not sin, nor did he charge God with wrong. In the face of overwhelming adversity, Job is a tough act to follow.
Job is an Old Testament parable gone to extremes. i don't know anyone whose suffering measures up to that of Job. But i know many people who've had reason to shake their fist at the heavens and cry "Why me!" i recall a day when two of my teenage nephews died in a horrific crash. i shook my fist at the sky and cried "But they were so young, just children."
It's times like this that we might remember Job and recall that, in the end. good things come to those who are faithful. Job endured a lot, but his triumph was his unending and patient fidelity.
In your next time of trial, great or small, ask God for patience, for strength to help you hold fast to your faith that comes so easily in the good times.
