Fifth Sunday O.T. The story of Job is a difficult one to explain. Catholic Teaching gives us a true interpretation as we know that many holy saints suffered throughout their lives and offered this up to God, joining in the saving work of Jesus on the Cross. God in His Wisdom, far above ours, has the eternal view of all things and knows how to bring the greatest good out of all the attacks of the enemy which seek to destroy us. Even though Job did not understand at first, he kept faith in God whilst enduring all his tragedies and sufferings caused by Satan. There was a holy purpose at work.
