On listening

About a week ago I came to the Vigil pondering  how listening to someone can be compassionate and open to their truth and integrity, or listening can be closed by the certainty of one’s own views.   I began praying not to be closed and prejuduced  in my own attitudes.

An ambulance with siren blaring had its progress blocked by a car that did not move. The sign of that moment and its demands were ignored. The driver was too caught up in their own world to be able to hear and act as they should.
