Echoes Of God

Echoes from the edge of space do not begin to match the beauty of God speaking to us here and now, in our sin.

It strikes me that Western civilization is not listening to the Word of God anymore, but only its echoes.

Echoes have a habit of diminishing with each turn. Eventually, they fade out altogether.

Then there is only lonely silence, into which mad imaginings come, for nature abhors a vacuum.

We can see these crazed vapours at work in the west already.

Never has it been more urgent than this present moment that the Word of God be heard in its ever-new freshness.

Like new wine, it will burst tired old wineskins, so care is needed to ensure the skins get renewed before they hold the new must.

New wine and new skins are the work of God. The Sacraments allow God to work in our lives, and they are essential for our renewal. What is stopping us from partaking in them?

Echoes are always second best. Let’s hear the Original!

    Very nicely put, Burrron.
    Let’s hope the family below doesn’t become an echo on Planet Earth any time soon.
    Let’s pray they can find sufficient worthless humans (yes, like Toad) to eat to keep them going.
    But these mere beasts are not made in God’s image of course.
    Not like us and Tony Blair.

    Beautiful, Brother B. Another one of your little “nuggets”.

    …Tears ran down Toad’s legs.

    (What’s that got to do with echoes, Toad? Nothing , but it’s miraculous.))

    You are very kind GC. I write these little articles, often in a hurry, when I see the blog is getting stale for lack of a new post, and have been inspired by something I recently read elsewhere.

    I try to follow the Gospel ideal of “And when they shall bring you into the synagogues, and to magistrates and powers, be not solicitous how or what you shall answer, or what you shall say;” (Lk 12:11)

    I never know how an article will end when I start it, which may explain my rambling and careering style.

    The results are mixed, and half the time I write something that gets up someone’s nose. C’est la vie.

    Thanks for your encouraging words.
