Paying Attention

Sometimes we are caught up in a busy world that we become unaware of the danger 
ahead of us  just like this caricature.  I have posted here a part of a newspaper write-up  by Fr. Jerry Orbos.  A good reminder for everyone.
so listen to me my sons cartoon
When God orders us to do something, we must listen. Many of us half-listen or do not listen at all. Why? Because we listen to ourselves or to the world around us. God speaks to us every day in ordinary ways. In the Holy Bible He speaks to us in a special way. If we want to listen to God, we must tone down the volume of our own headsets and the noise of the world around us. Only with a listening ear, and a prayerful heart can we truly listen and discern. ~Fr. Jerry Orbos

Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again. ~Andre Gide

Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it! ~Luke 11:28
