The Lord Is My Chef Daily Recipe for the Soul by Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II Monday in the Twenty-Eighth Week of Ordinary Time, 10 October 2022 Galatians 4:22-24, 26-27, 31-5:1 ><]]]]'> + <'[[[[>< Luke 11:29-32
While still more people gathered in the crowd, Jesus said to them, “This generation is an evil generation; it seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it, except the sign of Jonah.”Luke 11:29
I could feel your words, Lord Jesus, today: so strong, so direct, so true; yes, dear Jesus, your words are meant for us today.
What an evil generation we are in still seeking signs from you for even those entrusted to witness your presence, your love and mercy are nowhere to be found, seeking signs of you and worst, creating so many conflicting signs of you!
We have been so stubborn like the Galatians; we prefer going back to old, evil ways as we insist on what we believe as true, on what we have been used to that until now so many of us are still trapped and enslaved to sins of bigotry and prejudice, refusing to find you among everyone especially the sick, the poor, and disadvantaged.
Bless us, dear Jesus, and set us free from our stubbornness; soften our hardened hearts, open wide our constricted minds and perceptions to find you present in our lives daily, both in our joys and pains, in our ease and struggles, and especially with everyone we meet each day. Amen.
