About Today Readings

Mark 8:11-13.

No sign shall be given to this generation

How clever are those who seek to disprove the existence of God. If God is real, where is the evidence, they ask?

Of course, they will only accept certain types of evidence in any argument. They want phenomena that can be scientifically verified. They want miracles caught on camera. They want signals that can be captured by devices. Like the Pharisees, they want to be shown signs before they will believe in Jesus.

Jesus doesn’t accommodate those who seek God through worldly signs. If we pray, if we read the scriptures, if we follow the example of Jesus and treat each person we encounter with love, we might come to understand something of the mystery of God.

Faith is as much a journey of the heart as it is a journey of the mind.
