Godly whispering

Russian icon of prophet Elijah

It's a very short little quotation that I bring you today. But it is one that is very evocative. Let us allow it to teach us, to encourage us:

Blessed are the ears that pick up the Godly whispering.

Thomas a Kempis in The Imitation of Christ


  1. mmmm, nice, have to quiet ourselves sometimes to pick up those Godly whispers...


  2. So very true, Monk-in-Training!

    That's one of the big points about learning to meditate.

    Good to hear from you, old friend!

  3. Yes, I really like that icon myself, Cathy. Undoubtedly Elijah is hearing the "still small voice".
