One said, “I think my wife is crazy. She talks to herself all the time.” The other man said, “Oh, my wife talks to herself all the time, too. Only she doesn’t know it. She thinks I’m listening.” Sometimes in our religious practice we seem to have all the symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). We become distracted easily, we find it hard to concentrate, we allow ourselves to go off at a tangent and, most of all, we think we are listening when really we’re not. the bible. Some might go further and say that when the bible is proclaimed in our liturgy then God is actually speaking to us here and now. We would probably accept too that the teaching of the Church is another way of knowing what God wants to com- municate to us. But are In his gospel John quotes there other ways of listenJesus as saying that he is ing out for the shepherd’s the Good Shepherd whose voice? sheep listen to his voice. And, clearly, if the sheep Christ, the Good Shepherd, are to benefit from the speaks to us through other shepherd’s experience then people. When we come they have to listen to where across others we see the face of Jesus reflected in he is directing them. them, for they like us are Most of us would accept made in God’s image and that what God is trying to likeness. Yet sometimes we say to us can be found in see them only as physical beings rather than as miniwords of God, as glimpses into the divine. Do we hear the voice of God in other people? What about the events of our daily lives? If we are finding things hard financially, it may be because of the recession. But do we ever think that God’s voice may be prompting us to ask about whether we’re in the right job, using our talents to the full, managing our lives and money properly? Conversely, if we are doing really well, do we consider that we deserve a good pat on the back or do we instinctively bless God for our prosperity? And when we hear of natural disasters such as recent earthquakes do we jump on the bandwagon of “How can a loving God allow such a thing?” or do we learn anything about our own lives and those of others by looking deeper at the consequences of what has happened? How do we listen for the shepherd’s voice? Marmal-Aid! SVP Coffee Morning Homemade marmalade will be on sale again this weekend in aid of the Visamo Orphanage.
