Wednesday of the Second Week of Ordinary Time

Today’s readings

“Whoever has ears ought to hear.”

Hearing is sometimes a difficult challenge for us.  We have laundry lists of things we would like for God to hear.  We can be real good at praying when it entails telling God what we think needs to happen.  But it’s harder for us to just listen, and even harder for us to really hear.  Most often, hearing means conversion, and that can be messy and even uncomfortable – perhaps even painful.  But real disciples are called to be pray-ers who hear, not just speak.  Whoever has ears ought to hear.
