Our Morning Offering – 17 February – Monday of the Sixth week in Ordinary Time, Year A
The Pharisees came forward and began to argue with Jesus, seeking from him a sign from heaven to test him.
He sighed from the depth of his spirit and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign? Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.”
Then he left them, got into the boat again and went off to the other shore. – Today’s Gospel: Mark 8:11-13
By Fr Daniel Berrigan SJ (1921–2016)
I lift my eyes to You
my Help, my Hope
the heavens (who could imagine)
the earth (only our Lord)
the infinite starry spaces
the world’s teeming breath
All this. I lift my eyes
– upstart, delighted –
and I praise.
Fr Daniel Joseph Berrigan SJ was an American Jesuit priest, anti-war activist, Christian pacifist, playwright, poet and author.
