A Reflection on Job 42 Overview: According to the Fathers, Job finally obtains justification from God when he openly recognizes God’s omniscience and control over every event in human life (OLYMPIODORUS) and shows his sincere humility (GREGORY) and the fullest repentance (CHRYSOSTOM). A person asks a question in order to be able to learn that of which he is ignorant; for a person to question God is to acknowledge that he is ignorant in his sight (GREGORY). It is evident that the Fathers see in Job an anticipation of the fundamental virtues of Christian life. Job had not been delivered yet from his trial when he repented, but still was in the midst of his torments when he spoke so. Job now becomes priest while the visitors bring offerings. He had made sacrifices for his children; now he makes them for his friends. One who accuses the righteous will have to expiate a serious fault (CHRYSOSTOM).

God’s Purpose Cannot Be Thwarted JOB RECOGNIZES GOD’S OMNISCIENCE: [Job] openly declares that he had not learned these things before but had now come to know the unconquered power of God. And since God penetrates the decisions of people and understands the thoughts of all, there is nobody who can hide from his eye, which sees everything. Who is he, he says, who being spared of words, can hide the secrets of his mind in silence, because they have not been expressed in words? Olympiodorus, Commentary on Job 42.1-3

Hear, and I Will Speak THE HUMAN SENSES: To hear is, with us, to adapt our ear, which is in one place, to a sound that comes from another. But with God, on the other hand, to whom nothing is external, hearing is properly for him to perceive our longings that are rising up beneath him. For us then to speak to God, who is acquainted with the hearts even of those that hold their peace, is not for us to utter what we think with the words of our throat but to long for him with eager desires. A person asks a question in order to be able to learn that of which he is ignorant; for a person to question God is to acknowledge that he is ignorant in his sight. But for God, to reply is for him to instruct with his secret inspirations the one who humbly acknowledges his ignorance. Gregory the Great, Morals on the Book of Job 35.4

The Liturgy of the Word THE OLD TESTAMENT READING Reader

Be seated

A reading from the Book of Job. Then Job answered the Lord: "I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted. 'Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?' Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know. 'Hear, and I will speak; I will question you, and you declare to me.' I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you; therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust and ashes." And the Lord restored the fortunes of Job when he had prayed for his friends; and the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. Then there came to him all his brothers and sisters and all who had known him before, and they ate bread with him in his house; they showed him sympathy and comforted him for all the evil that the Lord had brought upon him; and each of them gave him a piece of money and a gold ring. The Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; and he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand donkeys. He also had seven sons and three daughters. He named the first Jemimah, the second Keziah, and the third Keren happuch. In all the land there were no women so beautiful as Job's daughters; and their father gave them an inheritance along with their brothers. After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his children, and his children's children, four generations. And Job died, old and full of days. Job 42:1-6, 10-17

THE EPISTLE READING Sub-deacon

A reading from the Letter to the Hebrews. Furthermore, the former priests were many in number, because they were prevented by death from continuing in office; but he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever. Consequently he is able for all time to save those who approach God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. For it was fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, blameless, undefiled, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens. Unlike the other high priests, he has no need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for those of the people; this he did once for all when he offered himself. For the law appoints as high priests those who are subject to weakness, but the word of the oath, which came later than the law, appoints a Son who has been made perfect forever. Hebrews 7:23-28

THE HOLY GOSPEL

All stand and turn to face the book of the Gospels

They came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples and a large crowd were leaving Jericho, Bartimaeus son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the roadside. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout out and say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" Many sternly ordered him to be quiet, but he cried out even more loudly, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" Jesus stood still and said, "Call him here." And they called the blind man, saying to him, "Take heart; get up, he is calling you." So throwing off his cloak, he sprang up and came to Jesus. Then Jesus said to him, "What do you want me to do for you?" The blind man said to him, "My teacher, let me see again." Jesus said to him, "Go; your faith has made you well." Immediately he regained his sight and followed him on the way. Mark10:46-52

THE PRAYER OF CONSECRATION Celebrant

Kneel

All glory be to thee, O Lord our God, who didst make us in thine own image; and, of thy tender mercy, didst give thine only Son Jesus Christ to take our nature upon him, and to suffer death upon the cross for our redemption. He made there a full and perfect sacrifice for the whole world; and did institute, and in his holy Gospel command us to continue, a perpetual memory of that his precious death and sacrifice, until his coming again; who, in the same night that he was betrayed, took bread; and, when he had given thanks to thee, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take, eat, this is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” + Likewise, after supper, he took the cup; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink this, all of you; for this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for you and for many, for the remission of sins: Do this, as oft as ye shall drink it, in remembrance of me.” + Wherefore, O Lord and heavenly Father, we thy people do celebrate and make, with these thy holy gifts which we now offer unto thee, the memorial thy Son hath commanded us to make; having in remembrance his blessed passion and precious death, his mighty resurrection and glorious ascension; and looking for his coming again with power and great glory.

We praise thee, we bless thee, we thank thee and we pray to thee, Lord our God. And we earnestly desire thy fatherly goodness to accept this our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving, whereby we offer and present unto thee, O Lord, ourselves, our souls and bodies. Grant, we beseech thee, that all who partake of this holy communion may worthily receive the most precious body and blood of thy Son Jesus Christ, and be filled with thy grace + and heavenly benediction; and also that we and all thy whole Church may be made one body with him, that he may dwell in us, and we in him; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord; By whom, and with whom, and in whom, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honour and glory be unto thee, O Father Almighty, world without end.

Formation on Sundays The ‘People of the Book’ and Prayer Today - Prayer in Islam Leader: Niall Christie, Corpus Christi College Meaning and Ritual: After a brief introduction to the faith as a whole, we will explore prayer in Islam. In the religion prayer takes two major forms, salat (ritual prayer) and du'a (personal supplication). We will address these two practices in terms of both their physical, ritual forms and their inner religious significance, considering how they enable the Muslim to re-affirm his or her faith and to connect with God.

Mystics Series The defining feature of mystical experience is its ineffability. Nevertheless, over the ages, those who have achieved mystical union with the divine have devoted themselves to communicating their experience to others. Many mystics have also sought to instruct others in the discipline of contemplation in the hopes that by God’s grace their readers may themselves know spiritual ecstasy. In this series we explore the rich English tradition of mystical writings. We begin in the Middle Ages with four influential fourteenth-century mystics: Richard Rolle, the author of The Cloud of Unknowing, Walter Hilton, and St. Julian of Norwich. Particular emphasis will be given to St. Julian and we will look at her writings in depth. We end with consideration of William Law, an eighteenth-century moral theologian and mystical writer, whose works (e.g. A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life) play a crucial role in the great Evangelical Revival.
