Monday of the Twenty-eighth Week in Ordinary Time
Readings; Rom 1:1-7, Lk 11:29-32
Praise God. An atheist called out to God for proof of his existence. He shouted saying, if you really exist, I want to hear you. All of a sudden there was a heavy thunder, but he could not recognize the voice of God in it. He said again, if you are alive I want you to touch me. He saw a butterfly flying and resting on his arms. But still he could not experience the touch of God. He shouted, I want you to call me, he heard his son calling him, Papa. But still he could not hear the voice of the Lord.
Dear reader, we see in the gospel today, the people asking for a sigh from the Lord. A sign is asked usually in a state of confusion in order to confirm it. The people of His time still doubted Jesus in spite of proclaiming the good news, healing the sick and casting the demons. “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.” Lk. 12/38. Dear reader, do you believe in the presence of the Lord in the blessed Sacrament? Do you encounter Jesus at the confessional? Do you really mean the matrimonial promise you made to Jesus? Do you practice the vows that you professed? Let us reflect for a while. There is someone greater than Solomon here. There is someone greater that Jonah here. Know the presence of Jesus and live a life worthy of a Christian.
