A MERE REFLECTiON

“No one ever spoke like this man.” – John 7:46

In 1998, I went to Rome for the canonization of St. Eugene de Mazenod, founder of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate. St. Peter’s Square was abuzz with excitement. People of different nationalities milled around, smiling and chatting with new friends. Hearing people speak in various languages was a crowning moment for me.
Amidst the noise and the babble, the announcement came that Pope John Paul II was going to appear in the window to address the crowd. A cacophony of oh’s and ah’s rose to the sky, then slowly came back to earth as it dwindled to silence. The mellifluous voice of the Pope began, speaking of the great love of God above for His people below. His voice had magic, his charisma was overwhelming, his message was overpowering.
No one ever spoke like this man. For sure, his magnetism was a mere reflection of Jesus’. And while he spoke with no fiery speeches or oratorical flare, the truth on his lips made him a powerful speaker.
How about you? Chelle Crisanto

REFLECTION:
When you speak, do people listen?

Lord, use me to speak Your words of truth.
