Take Time to Listen

To God...

There is another aspect of prayer which we need to remember: silent
contemplation. Saint John, for example, tells us that to embrace God’s
revelation we must first listen, then respond by proclaiming what we have heard
and seen (cf. 1 Jn 1:2-3; Dei
, 1). Have we perhaps lost something of the art of
listening? Do you leave space to hear God’s whisper, calling you forth
into goodness? Friends, do not be afraid of silence or stillness, listen
to God, adore him in the Eucharist. Let his word shape your journey as an
unfolding of holiness.
