Friday of the Tenth Week in Ordinary Time
 Readings of the day: RB 12 The Celebration of Solemn LaudsMass: 1 K 19:9a, 11-16; Resp Ps 27; Mt 5:27-32
Elijah on Mt Horeb, Rembrandt
After the fire there was a tiny whispering sound.
It may be that we hear the word of the Lord in a strong and heavy wind rending the mountains and crushing rocks or in an earthquake or in fire. It may be more likely that we will hear the word of the Lord whispering into the ear of our hearts. We must be quiet and still and listen to the Word speaking.
We need to practice the art of listening, which is more than simply hearing. Listening, in communication, is an openness of heart which makes possible that closeness without which genuine spiritual encounter cannot occur. Listening helps us to find the right gesture and word which shows that we are more than simply bystanders. Only through such respectful and compassionate listening can we enter on the paths of true growth and awaken a yearning for the Christian ideal: the desire to respond fully to God’s love and to bring to fruition what he has sown in our lives.(Evangelii Gaudium, 171)
MAY IT BE DONE TO ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.
