Javelins. That is the theme for this week. You have probably seen a strong young man with a javelin. It seems he could hurl it up to heaven. In the Bible we read that Joshua held a javelin as he lead the Conquest. (8:18) Early Christians practiced javelin prayers - short pleas sent up during the day. We can see some striking examples in today's Gospel. The Gospel begins with Martha and Mary sending word to Jesus, "Master, the one you love is ill." A plea, a simple, well-aimed prayer.
