What Sign Do We Need..

Posted: February 17, 2016 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

We don’t hear what other words if any that Jonah preached; other than the ultimatum that Nineveh would be destroyed in forty days if they did not repent.

Did they question who this prophet was? Who was this Jew to come into their great pagan city and to shout out destruction if they did not repent? Yet they listened in faith not requiring further signs. Perhaps they knew in their hearts they were leading very sinful lives. And obeyed God our Father’s call at once to repent. No guarantees whether or not by doing so they would be saved.

Are we still a wicked generation that needs more signs?

We have the promise of God our Father fulfilled in Jesus. We have billions of testimonies of how Jesus touched each and everyone’s lives. We who have sought after Him have experienced our merciful God and His love for us. We have the Sacraments which are all signs of the presence of God.

Let us instead ask our Lord, to allow us to signs of His love and mercy. To be witnesses for Him. Amen
