Friday of the Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel text Lk 11:15-26
Some of the people said, «He drives out demons by the power of Beelzebul, the chief of the demons». So others wanted to put him to the test by asking him for a heavenly sign».
Today we must learn a fundamental lesson: the only valid response before God is our faith, opening our heart confidently. Without faith we "get confused", we become hopeless: we see a miracle and we say that he is evil, but we immediately demand another miracle.
- Finally, when Jesus publicly and solemnly affirmed that he is the "Son of God" then, we don’t rejoice, we send him to Calvary and hang Him on the Cross instead. Are we out of our mind? «Whoever is not with me (…) scatters », clearly.
