THE SIGN OF GOD'S PRESENCE
 
Jesus was and is the sign of God present in this world of ours. When was the last time you recognized his presence?  
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
How well do you heed warning signs? Many fatalities could be avoided if people paid attention to the warning signs. When religious leaders demanded a sign from Jesus, He gave them a warning to avert spiritual disaster. The Ninevites recognized God's warning when Jonah spoke to them, and they repented. And the Queen of Sheba recognized God's wisdom in Solomon. Jonah was God's sign and his message was the message of God for the people of Nineveh. Unfortunately--- the religious leaders we hear about in today's gospel reading were not content to accept the signs right before their eyes. They had rejected the message of John the Baptist and now they reject Jesus as God's Anointed One and fail to heed His message. Simeon had prophesied at Jesus' birth that He was "destined for the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be opposed so that inner thoughts of many will be revealed" (Lk 2:34-35). Jesus confirmed His message with many miracles in preparation for the greatest sign of all - His resurrection. Let us remember that Jesus came to set us free from sin and hurtful desires. Through the gift of the Holy Spirit He pours His love into our hearts and minds.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Jesus was and is the sign of God presence in this world of ours. When was the last time you recognized his presence? The family you live with, someone you work with, maybe someone you met for the first time, meek, lonely, poor, or when you looked in the mirror at yourself?
