Listen to Him

The voice heard on the Mount of Transfiguration:

“This is my beloved Son. Listen to Him.”

But do we listen?

And, even if we listen, what do we hear? our own thoughts and desires, our personal ideologies?

How hard it is to really listen, to open my heart to the person on front of me – and above all to listen to God.

Today I am off to Bonito Oriental, Colon, in northeastern Honduras, for a retreat – a time to listen to God.

May I be open to that still small voice, that calls me.
