Sunday's Gospel is an example of a lesson, any two year old learns pretty fast. The Gospel is Luke 18: 1-8. This is the story of the widow who day after day, after day, keeps on going to the judge to get what she wants. He eventually gives in to her, because of her nagging. But I don't think it's her persistent nagging so much, as just her being persistent. Think about it. She's not going to a friend, She's going to a public personage in a public venue. The judge is probably concerned about how he's perceived by the public. I think that's the real reason, why he gives in to her. Call it group pressure.
What would people say, if she made a scene? He gives in just to be rid of her.
But you know, I don't think group pressure is going to work with God. But I'm trying the persistent nagging--works with Hubby.
