signs



We read of the Pharisees & Sadducees looking for signs in today's Gospel reading. Their demand puts me in mind of the modern mantra in relation to God and Christianity: extraordinary claims demand extraordinary proof. For me the universe, our world, and life itself is extraordinary evidence of God; the witness of the Gospels and the Church testament to the truth of Christianity. Those have been signs enough for most down through the centuries; for those whom they are not sufficient, I doubt anything would be enough. The truth of faith can not be put under a microscope anymore than love or poetry. The extraordinary proof asked for is there ... all that is needed is to open one's eyes and heart to it. Amen.
