Geeky Catholic Advent: Wednesday of the Third Week of Advent 2018

Gospel Reading: Luke 1:5-25

Highlight: "You did not believe my words, which will be fulfilled at their proper time."

Reflection: Zechariah did not believe the angel's words, and asked him for a sign. It's not a bad thing to ask God for a signs, as long as we do it in the spirit of faith. If we tell God, "I won't believe unless you give me a sign," then we have no right to expect God to show us anything. We must have the attitude of the father of the possessed child in Mark's gospel, and say, "I believe; help my unbelief!"

Geeky Quote: "I want to believe." - Poster in Mulder's office, The X-Files

Prayer: Jesus, I believe in you. Help my unbelief! Amen.
