Reflection: Monday of the 28th Week

October 11, 2010

First Reading: Galatians 4:22-24,26-27,31-5:1
Responsorial: Psalm 113:1b-2,3-4,5a and 6-7
Gospel: Luke 11:29-32

Show us a sign, they said.

STOP right there, what do you mean?

Show us a sign, so we will believe.

STOP right there, believe what?

You cast out demons. Is it by the power of Beelzebul you do these things? (from Friday’s readings).

Show us a sign from Heaven.

Stop right there.

Why should I show you a sign from Heaven?We want a sign to prove who you are.

STOP right there.

Look at your own Salvation History for signs.

Look at what the Almighty God has done…given His only Son; given us Jesus.

Look at your own history and your own time:

Look at Chaminade…Mother Teresa…Francis of Assisi…your own families.

Look at creation…the fact that you can participate in creation…

Give us a sign, they said!

Sometimes the signs are all around us and we don’t see them.
