Metanoia: March 24, 2018

Ezekiel 37:21–28
John 11:45–53
Psalm 85:1–7

In our Gospel reading, the Chief priests and Pharisees did not know what to do about this man called Jesus. They asked each other, “What are we to do?”

So often life throws us a ‘curve ball’. What is the right thing to do? Should I, or shouldn’t I? A roster of pros and cons is created to aid in the decision, yet the answer is still unknown.

This is the best time to grasp and clutch for divine wisdom. St. Benedict teaches us to “listen with the ear of your heart.” In so doing, a major decision can be made with a feeling of peace, joy, and grace, all given to us by God.

Heavenly Father, When I struggle to make a decision, help me to be still, listen and know the peace that comes only from You. Amen.
