The sign of Jonah

The sign of Jonah is Jesus. The focus of Lent is always Jesus.

Jesus expects people to recognize him. We all have the capacity to be touched by truth and goodness and love - even the people of our generation.

As always, the Word has a double movement: Come - and Go.

Come: believe, follow. How much do I believe? How far as the Word penetrated into the secret places of my being, between marrow and bone? What are the resistances? The Lord and his Word transform us.

Go: because we in our turn are called to be signs. This is our vocation. All are called to the radical following of Jesus. We consecrated people are called to be signs and prophets.
