A sign to the Ninevites

October 12, 2020 3:00 am

“Just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation.” (LK 11: 30)

Both Jonah and Solomon ministered to the Gentiles. They prefigured Jesus, who sent the Gospel out to all nations. We are living mostly in catholic countries, but how often faith is separated from daily lives; people are still practicing, but there is less and less love in our actions. Formally we are catholic, but the number of divorces, abortions, contraceptions, and degrees of infidelity still grows. We must “become a sign” with our marriage rituals, extreme ownership, and unconditional love.

“If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.” (Gospel Acclamation)
