FAITH IN FOCUS:
T
HIS MASTER’S VOICE
wo men were sitting on a bench
chatting. 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

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?
