“Be silent, and come out of him!”

IMG-20160719-WA0008In the gospel reading of the 4th Sunday in Ordinary time, we see Jesus healing the man with unclean spirit. Jesus silenced the unclean spirit with His command, because His teaching had authority. He is the anointed one of God, “the Messiah”.

Silence has a great role in the life of Jesus. As it is said, ‘silence strengthens our soul’. Our daily jobs and activities keep us always busy and do not give us time to be silent. In the course of time, we become part of a noisy world and lose peace of mind and control of our very self. How nice and wise it is, if we say to so many unwanted things and ideas of our life, “Be silent” at the right time!
