To test him

October 9, 2020 11:24 am

“Others, to test him, asked him for a sign from heaven.” (LK 11: 16)

They saw a miracle when Our Lord “had driven out a demon,” and they tested Him. How hard it is to believe when people are wounded, rejected, or deceived. Hurt people hurt people. When we are tested or ignored, when people do not believe in our good intentions, it is good to remember what happened to Our Lord and how He was calm, forgiving, and continued to help them understand unconditional love.   

“The prince of this world will now be cast out, and when I am lifted up from the earth I will draw all to myself, says the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
