St. Teresa of Avila

Lk 11:29-32

When the crowds were increasing, he began to say, “This generation is an evil generation; it asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah. For just as Jonah became a sign to the people of Nineveh, so the Son of Man will be to this generation. The queen of the South will rise at the judgment with the people of this generation and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to listen to the wisdom of Solomon, and see, something greater than Solomon is here!

The people of Nineveh will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the proclamation of Jonah, and see, something greater than Jonah is here!

Little signs from God

It can be scary to think about the culmination of our time on Earth when we must face our choices of this life.  We know neither the day nor the hour but, as we hear throughout Scripture, Jesus came the first time to let us know that we can always come back to him.  As we go about our days, it can be difficult to see Jesus reaching out to us. He tells the crowd in the Gospel that he is the sign they seek. Each day in the small moments of our lives, Jesus gives us signs that he is with us, guiding us, and won’t let us walk alone.

How can we notice the Lord watching over us today? Let us take each little sign from him and use it as a stepping stone toward love and righteousness to be repentant disciples.

Prayer

Lord, help us to recognize you in the little signs you show us throughout each day.  May we turn our hearts to you and trust that you remain with us on our journey.
