The Demand for a Sign

Mark 8:11-13

Have there not already been enough signs? No doubt Jesus’ relationship with the Pharisees is already strained. In this brief encounter his frustration is palpable, and his response terse. They do not deserve any more than that.

Prayer: We pray for “this generation,” not unlike the generation Jesus referred to in the Gospel. Sometimes it seems that none of our evangelization efforts bear fruit. You remind us that we may sow, but you reap.
