Saturday's Quotation[s]

On the Art of Listening:

"First we listen.  This is the step of discernment.  We listen to people and we listen to God.  Sometimes people share their deepest needs in the most casual, offhand way.  But if we are listening, really listening, there is often a rise within us, and inner 'yes', which is a divine invitation to prayer."
Richard Foster

"He who has ears to hear, let him hear..." 
Matthew 11:15, ESV


“But my people did not listen to my voice;
Israel would not submit to me.
So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts,
to follow their own counsels.
Oh, that my people would listen to me,
that Israel would walk in my ways!
I would soon subdue their enemies
and turn my hand against their foes.
Psalm 81:11-14, ESV


"Silence is the first language of God; all else is poor translation."
Thomas Merton
