Gospel: Lk 11:29-32
Demanding for a sign
In general i think we all seem to ask for signs from time to time, for it gives us a feeling of certainty and assurance. Apparitions and miracles like the film Himala - a local girl seer and healer or asking for roses as a confirmation. In whatever form it may be it doesnt change the fact . Jesus insist that he himself is the sign . For through him God sent his son into our world as a sign of his great love for us! Whoever sees him sees God !
The Ninevites were moved to conversion by the prophetic sign of Jonah. Today, it is Jesus calling us for repentance and invites us to turn to him. He is our true source of life and love! Turn to him now and stop looking for other signs to validate or satisfy you! He is here, now and waiting for you! What are you looking for?
