Hear His Voice

Jesus said: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me; and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one” (John 10:27–30). These four verses contain the whole of Jesus’s message; it is the nucleus of his Gospel: he calls us to share in his relationship with the Father, and this is eternal life....

            Let us invoke the intercession of Mary who is the Woman of the “yes.” Mary said “yes” throughout her life! She learned to recognize Jesus’s voice from the time when she carried him in her womb. May Mary, our Mother, help us to know Jesus’s voice better and better and to follow it, so as to walk on the path of life!...
