Gospel text (Mc 8,11-13): The Pharisees came and
started to argue with Jesus. Hoping to embarrass him, they asked for some
heavenly sign. Then his spirit was moved. He gave a deep sigh and said, «Why do
the people of this present time ask for a sign? Truly, I say to you, no sign shall
be given to this people». Then he left them, got into the boat again and went
to the other side of the lake.
