Commentary on the Gospel of
TEACHER, WE WANT TO SEE A SIGN FROM YOU
In the Broadway play, “Fiddler on the Roof,“ Tevye playfully asks his wife if she loves him. While she performs house chores she replies that she has raised their four children and managed their home all these years. “How then can you ask me if I love you?”
We all look for signs that we are loved by our family, friends and the Lord. The proof is not always found in verbal declarations of love, but often in acts of love and service, in years of quiet devotion and fidelity, and in abiding presence and companionship.
