“While he was in Jerusalem for the feast of Passover, many began to believe in his name when they saw the signs he was doing. But Jesus would not trust himself to them because he knew them all, and did not need anyone to testify about human nature. He himself understood it well.”
Asking for signs can be a way of bargaining with God, i.e., “If God gives me this sign, I’ll believe.”
When have I looked for a sign from Jesus?
Dare to ask for the grace of greater trust in God.
Heritage word—“Love God and also love the cross; this brings true peace to the soul. For without love, the cross is too heavy; and without the cross, love may deceive.”
(Mother Mary Anna, 1st Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
