Preparing the ear of the spirit for the voice of God – St. Bernard

Posted on December 31, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

“If you are preparing the ear of the spirit for the voice of God, a voice sweeter than honey and the honeycomb, then flee external cares; so that when your inner sense is disentangled and free, you may say with the prophet Samuel, ‘speak Lord, for your servant is listening’ (I Kings 3:10). For the voice of God does not speak amid the din and bustle of the world, nor is it heard in any public gathering. Rather secret counsel seeks to be heard also in secret. And so because of this, happiness will be given to us if we listen to God in solitude.”

St. Bernard
