Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 12,38-42.
Some of the scribes and Pharisees said to Jesus, “Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.”
He said to them in reply, “An evil and unfaithful generation seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it except the sign of Jonah the prophet.
Just as Jonah was in the belly of the whale three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights.
At the judgment, the men of Nineveh will arise with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and there is something greater than Jonah here.
At the judgment the queen of the south will arise with this generation and condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and there is something greater than Solomon here.”
1) Signs. In life, it is always necessary to discern, that is, to have the ability to know how to choose. To choose well, a process must be done, and in this process we find: prayer, signs and dialogue. Prayer to ask God for clarity; signs to guide and help us along the way. The signs are things that call your attention and cannot go unnoticed. And dialogue is when you talk about the matter with your spiritual guide or the person who accompanies you in life, since two heads are better than one.
2) Evil generation. There are times when we insist on our way and demand. It is complicated when you only complain and there is nothing that satisfies you. There are always obstacles that ruin your peace or happiness, and often, you yourself seek those problems. That is why today you are invited to open your eyes and take another look, to live a plentiful life in which you strive for the better and not for the worse.
3) Someone who lives for the better. In life, there are prophets that God puts in your way. There are people that come to us in order for us to react and change our ways. Christians are called upon to be light in other people’s lives and accompany others that need a little push in order to keep moving forward. We must help the people that have fallen and lend a hand. We are called upon to embrace the people that feel dirty and alone. St. Francis was not afraid to hug a leper. You have his example so do not be afraid to hug and show your affection to others. Embrace and accompany your brothers and sisters who need healing and forgiveness. Embrace and accompany: this is what our society needs.
God bless you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Remember, Heaven is our goal.
