Hello everyone! I‘m Sr. Vassa, and I‘m glad you've joined me for this brief Coffee
0:11
Break, where I share a thought, with you zillions, that occurred to me today, for no
0:17
particular reason. Today I‘m thinking about something
0:21
I think about often, actually, and that is: food. Of course, even when I don‘t think about it, eventually
0:30
hunger reminds me of food, because I need it, to have physical energy. But Christ talks
0:36
about a different kind of food and I just happened to notice this today reading
0:40
the Gospel of John, where Christ says: “Do not toil over the food that
0:47
perishes, but over the food that endures for eternal life...“ (Jn 6:27) He‘s talking
0:53
about the nourishment of communion with Him, which we also need on a daily basis, to have
0:59
energy – God‘s energy, that is, called “grace.“
1:04
That which makes us quiter inside, and more willing to discard
1:10
the little irritations of our day. We receive grace through the sacraments,
1:17
and, of course, through God's nourishing Word. Now, we all know that we hear lots of other kinds
1:24
of words all day: the new stories we listen to, the music we hear,
1:32
the words we exchange with one another all day, and
1:35
the overabundance of various kinds of words and messages,
1:40
often builds up inside of us – whether we notice
1:44
it or not – in a way that entirely drowns out any hunger for God‘s word or his voice.
1:54
Because, you see, God‘s Word is, so to say, an acquired taste. It can and must be developed.
2:02
It can be developed if we begin reading Scripture on a daily basis,
2:07
and I don‘t mean reading a lot, but I do mean reading
2:11
deeply, and carrying it with us for the rest of the day. That‘ all I have for you, for now, zillions.
2:20
Let's let God‘s voice into our lives today and I hope to see you next time!
