“To hear the whisper of the Lord, you must turn down the volume of the world. Find time to disconnect from everything around you and be still in His presence.”
A visitor/pilgrim to Lough Derg wrote these words. He or she attached no name but shared the words later with the staff there. They feature in a book LOUGH DERG – Island of Miracles by Fr Eamonn Conway.
There’s a lot in these words and maybe they have a place in our prayer and reflections during the coming week. How ready are we for this “disconnection”? Certainly it’s not always easy but it seems so necessary.
We are, on all sides, bombarded by noise and activity and so little time is set aside for reflection and prayer. Just as we can only truly hear another person when we fall silent and allow him or her to speak, so it is – has to be – with God.
