Fr. Seraphim Holland shares the difference between the responses of Zacharias when he was told that he and his wife would bear John the Baptist, and Mary the Theotokos, when she was told that she would bear Jesus Christ as a virgin. In the midst of explaining this, we see it is clear that we should never look for a sign, and we also talk about deception and how we should react when we see an angel, and that Satan can never perfectly mimic holiness. There is one personal anecdote at the end when someone who loved my son +Daniel looked for a sign and I’m very glad she did. So, signs may be good, but we should not look for them.
