Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.—Jesus. What does it mean to belong to the truth? How do we know that we’re listening to His voice? Today was the feast of Christ the King, the last Sunday in Ordinary Time. How well do we hear the voice of the King of Kings and not the voice of the status quo? There is a marked difference between the prophetic church and the pathetic church. How and where do you hear his voice. I find it more in stillness and quiet.
Modern man believes he is fruitful and productive when his ego is aggressively affirmed, when he is visibly active, and when his action produces obvious results. … Their desire is only an illusion which cannot find fulfillment.–Thomas Merton
