Open my ears and teach me to listen! Heal me so that I may be your voice!
Today’s readings remind us that God is known not only through our thoughts but also through our senses. He wants his presence to be felt in us and through us.
Are my ears open to hear you in others, Lord, and do I speak your word of healing love? Do I reach out indiscriminately to others and so open their ears to hear your voice? Am I your voice for those who have no voice? Do I know when to speak and when to be quiet?
Heal my hearing and my speaking!
Fr. Joseph Jablonski, MSC
