The challenge of cynicism
He does this by what seems to be a cynical response to a man looking for a miracle.
The man meets the challenge and gives the example of faith for which our Lord was looking.
In our own lives, as individuals and even as a Church, we may often encounter cynicism, which can discourage us from speaking and acting as boldly as we might.
We need to pray that God may grant the grace of conversion to the cynical and meanwhile enable us to be faithful and strong in Him in all the things we do and say.
