“Samuel, Samuel!” “John, John!” “Mary, Mary!” “Moses, Moses!” “Peter, Peter!” “Martha, Martha!”
God calls, but do we always listen and respond? In today’s homily we hear the story of God calling to Samuel in the night. It took two times before Samuel got the message that it was God calling and not Eli. On the third attempt God finally got through to Samuel.
How do you respond to God’s call? Are you giving God the silent treatment? When you listen, are you listening as Samuel, or as John, or as Mary, or as Moses, or as Peter, or as Martha?
