Monday of the Twenty Eighth Week in Ordinary Time ‘a’

I remember when I was much younger and struggling with my faith, I would ask God to give me some kind of proof of His existence. I had doubts that God was real especially when I prayed but didn’t hear back from Him. I wanted to experience something extraordinary that would make my faith strong. I compared myself to other people whose faith was strong and deep. They would tell me to go and to listen to that preacher, or to go to a certain prayer service and participate in a retreat. I did many of these, but nothing changed. And I remember one time during Mass, the priest was giving in his homily that many of us seek a sign, or some spiritual experience of faith, or something that would move us. However, we forget about the most important thing -- about the Eucharist and the real presence of Jesus Christ in it. I realized then, that instead of asking for a sign, I needed to ask God to open my eyes and my heart to those signs that are right here in front of me, today, that are happening each day, but I couldn’t see them. Instead of searching somewhere else, we should thank God for what we have here and repent -- “because at the preaching of Jonah they repented, and there is something greater than Jonah here.”
