I Samuel: the young Samuel sleeps in the presence of the Ark of the Covenant, waking when God calls but not understanding that it is God who is calling him. Golly, I wonder if we ever do the same: spiritually asleep though surrounded and infused by Grace, lulled to spiritual sleep by the many voices that confront us throughout the day, might we miss God's voice in our spiritual slumber? Lord, help me to keep my soul attune to your voice at every moment, expectant in hope and eager to hear You, and when You call, may I respond as Samuel finally did, "Here I am Lord, ready to serve."
Msgr. William J. King
