Is it possible that we are like the deaf mute in the Gospel today because of our refusal to give a listening ear to the lonely, the troubled and the worried?
The greatest tragedy is to have ears and fail to hear and to have tongues and fail to speak.

My parents had not been out together in quite some time.
One Saturday, as mom was finishing up the dinner dishes, my father stepped up behind her.
“Would you like to go out girl?” he asked.
Not even turning around my mother quickly replied “Oh yes, I’d love to!”
They had a wonderful evening and it wasn’t until the end of it that dad confessed.
His question had actually been directed to the family dog, lying near mom’s feet on the kitchen floor.
