Dear Friend in the Lord,

Depth of Faith”: In today’s Gospel, the Pharisees were “demanding” a sign from Jesus, to prove His Divinity.  However, Jesus reprimanded them for their insincerity and their lack of faith in Him as the Messiah.  Ponder on, “Is our faith, love, and hope in Jesus deep?  If so, then all our petitions and prayers will be centred on loving Him, and serving His Father’s Will.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 8:11-13

The Pharisees came up and started a discussion with Jesus; they demanded of him a sign from heaven, to put him to the test.

And with a profound sigh he said, ‘Why does this generation demand a sign? In truth I tell you, no sign shall be given to this generation.’ And, leaving them again, he re-embarked and went away to the other side.
