Daily Mass: Looking for signs from the Lord. Catholic Inspiration

It’s human nature to be looking for a sign from God – guiding our actions and helping us to see the right path.  Jesus teaches in the gospel of Luke that we  don’t need any more signs…we have the Lord!  The task now?  To put our faith into practice.

Daily Mass: Repentance. Catholic Inspiration

Three Great Things

Fr. Andrew’s Daily Mass Homily Podcast – Wednesday of the 1st Week of Lent

Jonah preaches to the people and they repent – through the signs of sackcloth, fasting, and supplication.  When the people ask Jesus for a sign he recalls what happened at Nineveh, and he invites us to offer this “sign” of repentance that comes from our hearts – turning from sin and following the Lord.
