Saint Hedwig (c. 1174-1243); Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque (1647-1690)
Readings of the day: RB 13:1-11Mass: Romans 1:1-7; Resp. Psalm 98; Luke 11:29-32
For weeks we have been hearing about Jesus teaching, driving out demons, healing, and responding to those who test him and try to justify themselves. Nevertheless, the crowd still seeks a sign. Jesus doesn’t mince words: “This generation is an evil generation.” It seems an age-old problem—we are always looking for something bigger and better, something a little bit more convincing. The Ninevites took to Jonah. There is something greater than Jonah in our midst. 
If today you hear HIS voice, harden not your hearts.
