The sign of Jonah and the story of Jesus are inextricably linked. We are reminded that the Ninentes were rewarded with redemption because they opened their minds and hearts to God.

Are we open to hearing the voice of God, even if it is a rebuke or correction? Am I open to conversion? If I need conversion, I must first acknowledge my sin.

Dear Jesus, help me to humbly acknowledge my faults and failings. Make me proud to be Your beloved, and nothing else.
