Lk 11: 29-32

When the crowds were increasing, he began to say, “This generation is an evil generation; it asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah. For just as Jonah became a sign to the people of Nineveh, so the Son of Man will be to this generation. The queen of the South will rise at the judgment with the people of this generation and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to listen to the wisdom of Solomon, and see, something greater than Solomon is here!

The people of Nineveh will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the proclamation of Jonah, and see, something greater than Jonah is here!

“If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.”(Psalm 95: 8)

It took me a long time to figure out what “harden not your hearts” means. When I made an Ignatian retreat, however, I learned that we can harden our hearts in different ways. When we encounter resistance or challenges in our prayer, in our relationship with others, in daily life—these are times when we can harden our hearts.

A spiritual director at our school says to spend time with these struggles, to wrestle with the questions they bring. This time is like working clay through our hands, stretching it and re-shaping as it becomes more malleable. Figuratively, our hearts are like this, and we must give God time to do His work within us.

Prayer

My God, I wish from now on
to be the first to become conscious
of all that the world loves, pursues, and suffers;
I want to be the first to seek,
to sympathize and to suffer;
the first to unfold and sacrifice myself,

to become more widely human
and more nobly of the earth
than of any of the world’s servants.

—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J.
