Sts Cyril and Methodius (M)

James 1:1-11; Psalm 119:67-68, 71-72, 75-76; Mark 8:11-13

A deeper wisdom

I wonder if the Lord in the Gospel today had had enough of being asked for signs and wonders? He sighs straight from his heart when asked by the Pharisees for a sign. Maybe it is like a child asking a parent over and over ‘do you love me?’ In making these repeated requests for the Lord to prove himself to us, we can weaken our belief in the love that he has for us. What he has done, and what he is doing now for us, should be signs enough. As St James today instructs us, we should live by a deeper wisdom.
