Who teaches the soul if not God?
St. John of the Cross
Jesus taught the disciples that there is only One you can call Rabbi or Teacher - who alone knows what your restless spirit seeks. As you pray today, ask your Teacher to enlighten and guide you so that you will be attentive to the word of God in your everyday life.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
