Guest House Daily Reflection

Mark 8:11-13
In today’s Gospel Jesus counsels us not to look for signs. The Pharisees witnessed all the miracles of Jesus yet they keep asking for a sign. Our lives are filled with signs: our families, communities and friends who love and support us, the wonders of creation: the air we breathe, the water we drink, the beauty of a sunrise or sunset, a child’s smile, the grace of someone’s kindness, support and forgiveness. What we do need is the openness of heart and the vision of faith to realize those signs in our midst.
