MONDAY OF THE SIXTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME, MEMORIAL OF SAINTS CYRIL AND METHODIUS, FEBRUARY 14, 2022



A reading of the holy Gospel according to Mk 8:11-13


The Pharisees came forward and began to argue with Jesus, seeking from him a sign from heaven to test him. He sighed from the depth of his spirit and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign? Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.” Then he left them, got into the boat again, and went off to the other shore.


REFLECTION

" no sign"


We all have taken tests. Some of us are good test takers, some don't fair too well.


After taking tests, there are times that I feel "dumb". Some tests ask which of these words don't go together or put the words in sequence. In James we read: joy-- trials --faith--perseverance --perfect-- complete--lacking in nothing--ask--wisdom--no doubting--two minds --unstable.


Daily these words get jumbled up in my mind and I wonder where they might be or where I am with them, when I am faced with a dilemma.


God knows exactly where I am in the word puzzle and I leave it up to Him. All I know is that I trust Him and with faith I live each day.

Faith beats out doubt because I have gotten to know God. Yet, I ask for more faith as I have doubts. And He knows me better than myself.


On my own, I sure do feel "dumb" at times. But with God, I have the confidence in the Father who loves me. And when I am lacking in worshipping Him, petitioning Him or thanking Him, He will send me reminders throughout the day what needs to be done. I really don't need any "signs" of His love for He has been so kind to me.


"Be kind to me, Lord, and I shall live."


Today is St Valentines Day but the memorial is for Saints Cyril and Methodius. Please click above and learn a little about these saints who persevered in their evangelical work working with the Slavic people.


Thanking God for all He has done for me.

God Bless You.
