I have been thinking a great deal about silence and the art of listening. There is so much to listen to - in our relationships, in our hearts, within our world...I am very deaf and need to concentrate to hear; I read lips but hearing is different from really listening. Now that I am concentrating on the call to create silence, I find I am also learning to listen to God and others at a deeper level.
May these last days of Lent be a time of quiet for all of us so that we may listen to the God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit who speaks to us in the depths of our hearts and also speaks to us through the events and people in our lives. Let us open our hearts to listen to Jesus as the Father again tells us: "This is my Beloved Son: listen to Him."
