Read the book of Job: Monday, September 26th, 2016

Listen to the homily here.


The book of Job
·      One of the oldest books
·      Great reading for suffering
Narrative between God and Satan or adversary
·      The first conversation
·      “Is it for nothing that Job is God-fearing?...But now put forth your hand and touch anything that he has, and surely he will blaspheme you to your face.”
The first challenge for Job
·      1.) Sabeans steal oxen and ass
·      2.) Lightning kill sheep
·      3.) Chaldeans steal the camels
·      4.) His children died

“Naked I came forth from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I go back again.  The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD!”
