Jenny McDevitt: Nevertheless, She Persisted

Luke 18:1-8

19th Sunday after Pentecost - Year C

October 20, 2019

The Rev. Jenny McDevitt (PCUSA)

 

When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth? My first understanding of faith showed up every Tuesday morning at 9:00 a.m., like clockwork. I attended a Catholic elementary school, and every weekly Mass was very much a part of our curriculum.

One week, the priest exhorted us in the same manner as Jesus. "Pray always," he told us. "Pray without ceasing. This is what the Lord desires of you." After Mass, as we marched single-file down the hallway to our classroom, more than a few of us had the same thought. We settled into our desks, and when our teacher handed out the schedule, the math quiz, some heads bowed while others shook sadly. One brave spokesperson explained, "I'm sorry, ma'am," she said, "but we were told to pray without ceasing. We can't take the quiz. We're praying." Our teacher didn't miss a beat. "Oh," she said, "you can take the quiz. Because I imagine that once you begin working the equations, your prayers will actually increase." Turns out she was right.
