02-17-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 17, 2014
Jesus answered the Pharisees demand for a sign to prove His Lordship, saying, “Why does this generation seek a sign?  Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.”  Mk 8:11-13

St. James spoke of the Wisdom available from God, just for the asking, and then continued:  “But he should ask in faith, not doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed about by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord,”  Jas 1:1-11

Faith involves Action without knowledge.  If an action requires preliminary proof, it is not faith.  The Pharisees did not lack faith, they just didn’t want to know the truth.  They had an ulterior motive that was to eliminate any threat to their position.  And faith in God, belief in Jesus was that threat.

If we, brothers and sisters in Christ, truly believe that God will give us the wisdom we need in ANY situation, just ask and it will be given.  Ever come up with an answer to an unsolvable problem, and then wonder where that answer came from?  That’s the Wisdom of God.  That’s the Holy Spirit working within us.

And THAT’s pretty awesome!

May God bless you with a wonderful week, beloved!
