Thought for the Day – 19 February – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
“God speaks to us in many ways.
He speaks in the language of nature.
Sky and earth tell us of their Creator.
Walk in silence beneath the night sky and contemplate the myriads of stars above.
It is impossible not to sense the power and beauty of the infinite God.
Look at the flowers in the meadows and the silent forests.
Look out across the vast expanse of the ocean, where the waves are breaking and surging but, never cross the limits imposed on them, by their Creator.
It is easy to repeat the words of St Augustine – “How great and good You are, O God!”
The voice of God, can also be heard in sermon and instructions, in the example which the Saints give us, in the advice of confessors and Superiors and others, whose task in life it is, to enlighten and guide the faithful.
Let us listen to these voices, for they represent the voice of God.”
