Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Do not forget the works of the Lord! Hearken, my people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in a parable, I will utter mysteries from of old.

God speaks to us in many ways. He speaks to us through our consciences, letting us know the difference between right and wrong. He listens to us through our prayers and gives us inspiration and solace through the Holy Spirit. He teaches us through the thoughts, words, and works of Christ and shows us what it means to be His children and heirs to His Kingdom. He offers us words of love and mercy and asks only that we listen to Him when He speaks to us and to put into practice what He tells us. He gives us the Scriptures and reveals to us eternal truths and mysteries through the parables and stories we find within. If we truly care about God, then it is impossible to forget His works. They are all around us as constant reminders that we are not alone in this world. We have a Heavenly Father, who cares for us and was willing to sacrifice His Beloved Son so we might have a chance to share in the bountiful harvest that awaits us all in Heaven.

Are we listening and living God’s teachings? Are our hearts open to the Scriptures and the teachings they offer us? How can we become more faithful followers of the wisdom of God?

O Lord, we will not forget your works.
