Remain Always Silent

Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures

Eighth Sunday In Ordinary Time

Remain Always Silent

“Remain always silent because only in this way God’s voice will continue to speak within you. Be silent and do not praise yourself. Your spiritual life must take root in silence.” (Jesus) (May 1962)

Today’s Readings: A good person out of the store of goodness in his heart produces good, but an evil person out of a store of evil produces evil; for from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks.” (Luke 6)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, sometimes it seems a day can be going so well and then I open up my mouth! Many of us have a “mouth problem”- especially in our families. We complain, we sow negativity, we may even be hurting the ones we love the most with words we cannot take back. So many of us, ok me, talk just to hear ourselves. Lord help us to walk in more interior silence this Lent- to listen to You and to speak less. Maybe less noise in our environment- less social media and TV, more prayer, contemplation and time spent before the Blessed Sacrament. Help our spiritual lives Lord to take root and produce a harvest of good fruit this Easter!
