Rom 1:1-7 / Lk 11:29-32
Reading: Rom 1:1-7
From Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ,
an apostle called and set apart for God's Good News, the very promises he foretold through his prophets in the sacred Scriptures, regarding his Son, who was born in the flesh a descendant of David, and has been recognized as the Son of God endowed with Power, upon rising from the dead through the Holy Spirit. Through him, Jesus Christ, our Lord, and for the sake of his Name, we received grace and mission in all the nations, for them to accept the faith. All of you, the elected of Christ, are part of them, you, the beloved of God in Rome, called to be holy: May God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ, give you grace and peace.
Gospel: Lk 11:29-32
As the crowd increased, Jesus began to speak in this way, "People of the present time are evil people. They ask for a sign, but no sign will be given to them except the sign of Jonah. As Jonah became a sign for the people of Nineveh, so will the Son of Man be a sign for this generation. The Queen of the South will rise up on Judgment Day with the people of these times and accuse them, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and here there is greater than Solomon. The people of Nineveh will rise up on Judgment Day with the people of these times and accuse them, for Jonah's preaching made them turn from their sins, and here there is greater than Jonah.
While the people of Nineveh recognized Jonah as God's sign to them, and the Queen of the South listened to, and recognized, the wisdom of Solomon, the Jews kept waiting for Jesus to do something spectacular for them to believe that he is indeed the anointed one. And yet, more than any other people in history, the Jews were the most privileged to have Jesus Himself – greater than Jonah – in their midst. And they failed to recognize Him.
At the present time, Jesus is with us, and within each one of us, everyday of our lives. Do I really recognize Him? If I truly do, is my way of life Christ-like? Or am I also rejecting Him?
