Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
March 8, A.D. 2006
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Psalm 51:3-4, 12-13, 18-19
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
It seems to me that Jesus refused to give a sign to the crowd in
gospel, because He knew that even if a sign were given, they still
believe. How true this was! Saying they would get no sign except that
Jonah, our Lord clearly referred to his death, burial and resurrection
days later -- much as Jonah spent three days in the belly of the fish.
when He gave this tremendous sign of resurrection, what happened? Some
the people still refused to believe! But, the church grew rapidly after
Christıs resurrection. Sadly, the religious leaders refused to believe
sign and stepped up their persecution of the new Christians.
I've often heard that the more things change, the more they stay the
In our technologically advanced world we still want signs and when they
given we refuse to believe!
Perhaps, like the Jews of 2000 years ago, we're looking for the wrong
of sign? Jesus came to free us from the slavery of sin and death, and
still brings that miracle to us today. As we continue on our Lenten
let us pause and see the signs we are given and listen to the spirit
resides in our hearts. It is there that we shall find the true signs
gifts He so freely gives.
