God Speaks to All Who Listen

        At the beginning of Mass this morning, I yearned to hear whatever the Lord wished me to know; I was ready. Reading 1 came from Acts 4. After observing the boldness of Peter and John, the leaders, elders, and scribes ordered them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John relied, "Whether it is right in the sight of God for us to obey you rather than God, you be the judges. It is impossible for us not to speak about what we have seen and heard." Father M in his homily commented that Peter and John were uneducated, ordinary men, but when they had the good news, they had to proclaim it without fear.
       Well, the Lord spoke to me, for I'd been scheduled to give a talk before a group next Saturday on how God wants to draw all to union with him through the Holy Eucharist, the central message of this blog. Thanks be to God.
