Ordinary Time, 20th Sunday. Jeremiah listens to the voice of God but the princes refuse to listen. Whose voice do you follow? The world says you are a never enough; God says that you are loved, and that is enough. Listening to His voice can make people uncomfortable, but that's not our fault. It's time we fixed our eyes on Christ and stopped listening to the other voices.
I'm trying something new, a little reprise at the end of Mass:
Spend some extra time this week listening to the voice of God. God is speaking to us all the time, but we won't hear him unless we start listening. (18 Aug 2013)
