St Teresa Avila7“If you immediately become preoccupied with distracting affairs, and give no heed to Him Who is within you, how can He make Himself known to your soul? The time of which I am speaking, namely, immediately after Holy Communion, is a particularly opportune time. It is then that the Master personally teaches you. Listen to Him.”

                                                            – St. Teresa of Avila

For Reflection:

According to St. Teresa of Avila, what could be the reason that I often fail to hear the voice of our Lord speaking to me in my heart? How can I eliminate distractions? (Hint: See tomorrow’s Grace lines for a suggestion by St. Teresa.)
