Here is part of today’s Gospel, from St Luke: ‘He also said to the multitudes, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, ‘A shower is coming’; and so it happens. And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, ‘There will be scorching heat’; and it happens. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky; but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?’

The last phrase is also expressed  sometimes as the ‘signs of the times’. This task asks for a very deep listening, both to outward events and to the inner promptings of the heart, to discern how God is speaking. May we take this task seriously, both on our own behalf and for the Church and the world, which God loves so much. May He bless you abundantly this day.
