Daily Bible Reflections

August 6, 2011
Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord


Moreover, we possess the prophetic message that is altogether reliable. – 2 Peter 1:19

A career-driven person, Beth (not her real name) felt disappointed with herself when, after giving birth to her second child, she lacked the drive to work. Her marriage, too, was breaking apart.
When Beth was still single, she was very devoted to the Eucharist and active in parish work. That stopped when she got married. Even Sunday Masses took a backseat as her work required her to travel. She felt guilty. She sensed that the Lord wanted her back. She came to me for counseling. After allowing her to articulate her thoughts and feelings, and a little processing, we ended the session and agreed to meet again after a week. She resolved to give more time to God.
Days after that, I saw Beth frequenting the adoration chapel.
And then the unexpected happened. A few hours before we were to meet again, Beth died. She was rushed to the hospital because she couldn’t breathe due to asthma.
What she felt was right — that the Lord wanted her back, truly back in His arms. Good thing she listened to the voice in her heart. We all need to. Tess V. Atienza (svp_tvatienza@yahoo.com)
In the silence of your heart, what do you hear?

Lord, give me an open heart that listens to what You are saying to me. Help me to heed Your message.
