In today’s Gospel, we see John the Baptist looking for confirmation that Jesus is the messiah. The humility of Jesus is the example we should be taking away from this encounter. He tells them to look at the signs he has performed and to go and tell his cousin such.
How would someone know you are a Christian? The age old question of everyone skeptical of the Church. They often only see what the news portrays as corruption and out of date with society. It is our actions that will bring the love of Christ into this world.
“Lex Orandi Lex Credendi” literally means the way we worship is the way we pray. We express in the Creed every Mass our faith and we worship in this way. What we hold dear to our hearts in prayer we express in the Mass.
Do you take your faith and express it properly? Or are we like the Pharisees from yesterday’s reading? We should always walk by faith not by sight. We believe in the saving power of Jesus and miracles through his Church, now go out and pave his second coming.
