Thursday of the 27th Week in Ordinary Time

Today the church celebrates Thursday in the 27th week of ordinary time. “An elderly woman is struggling to pray,” says Father Jerry in today’s homily. “She says the right words, but she has no sense of God’s presence.”

Her pastor encourages her to go to her room each day for 15 minutes and to knit before the face of God. “Do not say a single word of prayer,” the pastor says. “Just knit and try to enjoy the quiet of your room,” he says.
