Scripture:

Micah 6:1-4, 6-8
Matthew 12:38-42

Reflection:

In today’s Gospel reading, Jesus is asked for a sign, ostensibly to demonstrate that He is who He says He is. But Jesus replies, "An evil and unfaithful generation asks for a sign, but no sign will be given it except the sign of Jonah the prophet." Then Jesus offers a parallel between Jonah in the belly of the whale and He in "the heart of the earth."
