Prophets, saints and all of creation — yesterday and today — echo Jesus
by Sister Agnes Fischer
Today’s psalm response reminds us that Jesus speaks with authority:
If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
- God speaks to us in the infinity of creation: the sun, moon, stars, the oceans, flowers, the face of a baby, the laughter of children …
- God speaks to us in prophets who know how to listen and communicate God’s message.
- God is manifest in saints of old and of today so we can know God, love God and have confidence enough to put our lives in God’s hands.
- God gives us a Mother, model of obedient listening manifested in action.
- And above all, God gives us Jesus, the unique teacher with authority that “even the spirits obey him”.
If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts. In other words, pay attention!
