Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening. - I Samuel 3:10
As we come ever closer to the birth of the Word of God in our world are we ready to say these words that come to us from the child Samuel? He had no idea what God might want of him, but he was willing. It is the perfect prayer of those who want to be disciples of the Word Incarnate.
Let us savor these words and ask for the grace to make them our own.
