Listen for God's still, small voice

Friday, June 15, 2018

In the first reading Elijah waiting for a meeting with God experiences a mighty wind, an earthquake, and a fire, but he knew God was not there. 

He heard a small voice, fell to his knees, knowing the Lord had come to him.  

This parable has two meanings for me. One is that in our prayer life we must remain silent enough to hear God whispering to us. The other thing this story tells me is that God might come to us at quiet prayers at mass rather than loud "Praise God" sessions.
