(St. Peter Damian, Bishop and Doctor of the Church)
Jesus said, “This generation is an evil generation; it seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it, except the sign of Jonah.” Lk_11:29-32
. . when the people of Nineveh believed God; they proclaimed a fast and all of them, great and small, put on sackcloth. . . . When God saw by their actions how they turned from their evil way, he repented of the evil that he had threatened to do to them; he did not carry it out. Jon_3:1-10
Want a sign, beloved? Maybe instead of looking at all the evil in the world and crying woes, if we begin to focus on all the tiny and incredible miracles all around us, we’ll recognize that all of life is a sign of God’s incredible Love for us! That’s GRACE!
