Humbly submit your will to God (Thy Will be done) and consecrate yourself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through Mary and Joseph.
Some of the scribes and Pharisees said to Jesus,
“Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.”
He said to them in reply,
“An evil and unfaithful generation seeks a sign,
but no sign will be given it
except the sign of Jonah the prophet.
Just as Jonah was in the belly of the whale three days and three nights,
so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth
three days and three nights.
At the judgment, the men of Nineveh will arise with this generation
and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah;
and there is something greater than Jonah here.
At the judgment the queen of the south will arise with this generation
and condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth
to hear the wisdom of Solomon;
and there is something greater than Solomon here.” MT 12:38-42
Jesus shares His identity today with us. He is greater than the prophets Solomon and Jonah, He is the Son of Man, the Messiah, the long awaited Savior but the Jews don’t believe Him. He predicts the Paschal Mystery, His Passion, Death, and Resurrection, “so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights”. You can’t just make this stuff up. Jesus did spend 3 days and nights in the heart of the earth. He is the Son of Man. He is the Savior of the world.
Today’s challenge: Try to be more like Jesus today by meaning what you say. Don’t just talk the talk but walk the walk.
