Be attentive to the tone of voice.
In the Gospel we find another secret.
Jesus shows us who the other is, who our neighbor is, who the person living next to us is.
In fact He said: “Whatever you have done to the least of these you will have done to me.
Remembering that in our child, mother, father, husband, wife Jesus is present doesn’t take anything away from our human love,
on the contrary this helps us to love just in those moments when the desire of loving is no more there, when the defects of the other surpass his good qualities.
Therefore, do not stop at the other’s limitations, these are only a chance to love Jesus Forsaken, but see Jesus in him, in her, in them.
Silence too can be charged with communication and can send
a positive message
- I feel well with you.
I can allow myself not to fill our space with words
or negative one
- I ignore you,
- I’m not interested in you
Today we will underline the importance of tenderness in our voice: Use tones of voice that express sweetness, kindness, protection.
