How important it is that we listen to one another. We find this out in families, at work and in our wider society. Dialogue is so important. We can discover in this way the purpose and will of God for us. By listening to others from the heart, and then by speaking in return from the heart, we can see how God sends special people into our lives to show us the way.
This, of course, is also important in the Church. We listen and respond to each other as people of faith in a respectful and dynamic way. This enables us to move forward into the future.
The most important dialogue we can have, we know, is that dialogue with Almighty God in prayer. When we open our hearts to our Creator, Redeemer and Sanctifier, this is how we grow in grace.
May honest dialogue always be a part of our lives as we move forward as people of faith!
And let us continue to pray for one another.
