Thursday of the Thirty-First Week in Ordinary Time ‘c’

Those who hurt others, those who continually act with evil motives make us angry and upset. We don’t want to do anything or be with those kinds of people. Try to think of someone that in your opinion is a bad person, a sinner, or maybe someone who hurt you badly. Now ask yourself -- are you able to pray for that person? It is hard… It is hard to pray for sinners since we have an attitude that they don’t deserve our prayers. So, most times we end up praying for those that we love, those who are good to us, or for members of our families. Jesus encourages us to pray for sinners. Not just to pray for them but to pray for their conversion. He was accused of spending time with sinners, with tax collectors, and with prostitutes. He teaches us that we are obligated to care for them too, to care about their conversion, about their returning to God. “I tell you, in just the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need of repentance.”
