WHO IS DEAF?
Deafness is more than hearing impediment.
He, who does not listen is deaf.
Listening is more than just paying keen attention to what is said.
It is a active hearkening to what is said.
Experience is the hearing aid for those who do not listen.
The prodigal son was lucky; he came back to his senses.
He returned home.
It is not all who go out in defiance that returns.
He is equally deaf, who refuses to dance to genuine music of love;
He is deaf who gives hate in return for love.
When we listen, and cherish wisdom
We are good to go on the path to life.
May our hearts not be darkened to the whispers of love
May we live our days sharing in the fate of those who listen.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
