Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Friday of the Second Week of Advent
He is Teaching- Are You Listening
From time to time, He would say a few words. He knows very well that I listen to each of his words as a prayer. I constantly reflect on His teaching. Today, it happened the same way. (Elizabeth) (March 4, 1966)
Today’s Readings: I, the LORD, your God,
teach you what is for your good,
and lead you on the way you should go. (Isaiah 48)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, we learn in Isaiah today in the First Reading that You are always teaching. You are always teaching us what is for our good and to lead us on the way we should go. You do this in Your Word, and through Your Church and in Your Holy Inspirations. But Lord, are we listening? Because in the Gospel we see that You taught through John the Baptist and You taught by Your Incarnation and living among us with Your sermons and Your miracles and all the people could do was to find a reason to complain and a reason not to believe. Lord, why do we do that? Why do we pay no heed to Your words to us and then complain that we are all alone and that You have abandoned us. Today, let us not do this! In whatever circumstance we may find ourselves, whatever suffering whether it was allowed by You or brought on ourselves by our own brokenness let us get quiet today so that we can hear Your Voice in our hearts. You are teaching-help us to listen!
