Gospel: Matthew 12:38-42
What sign do we need to see to have faith?
In today’s Gospel, some teachers of the law and some Pharisees spoke up to Jesus wanting to see a sign from Him but instead He told them the signs that were shown in the past by Jonah’s preaching in Nineveh and Solomon’s wisdom heard by the Queen of the South relating Himself to Solomon and Jonah as someone greater.
What sign do we still need to see from the Lord to have faith when He is present with us? Isn’t His presence enough to make us faithful?
Jesus, in today’s Gospel, invites us to acknowledge His mere presence and concrete works in our lives. He also calls us to have faith in His selfless love which already is an enough sign to prove to us the unconditional love of God the Father.
Mary, woman of faith, pray for us.
