Good evening/morning odhiambo!

There's nothing like the saints for showing the true meaning of the holy scriptures!

'For oftentimes by reason of their own sins the tongue of preachers is tied, oftentimes on the other hand it is because of the sins of their people that the gift of eloquence is withheld from pastors. By reason of their own sins the tongue of preachers is tied, according to the words of the Psalmist, "But to the sinner God hath said, Why dost thou declare My justices?" (Ps. xlix. 16.) And again, the voice of preachers is hindered because of the sins of the people, according to the words of the Lord to Ezechiel: "I will make thy tongue stick fast to the roof of thy mouth, and thou shalt be dumb, and not as a man that reproveth, because they are a provoking house" (Ezec. iii. 26).

As though He said expressly: The gift of eloquence is withdrawn from thee, because while the people offend Me by their sins they are not worthy to have the truth preached to them.

Through whose fault it is that speech is with drawn from the preacher is no easy matter to decide. But that the silence of the pastor is hurtful to himself sometimes, and to his flock at all times, is beyond all doubt.

But if we cannot preach as efficiently as we ought, would that by innocence of life we held the rank that befits our office. For the Gospel adds, "Behold I send you as lambs among wolves."'

'Lord, how sweet is Thy Spirit! "I know whom I have believed, and I am certain." (2 Tim. 1:12.) I am certain that Thou art in the tabernacle. What happiness to remain during the most silent hours at the foot of the altar! Oh, who will give me the wings of a dove, that I may take my flight of love towards Thy divine Heart?'

I think that Saint Augustine's prayer or "lament", resonates with many of us  Sad

St. Ignatius of Loyola

Amen to that.
It bring to mind our political class.
There is a group of politician traversing the country for what is dubbed as  "prayer meetings".
During these so called "prayer meetings" presided over by certain pastors, perceived opponents are castigated, hate speeches abound!
Anyone who dares to complain is told to leave those who want to pray alone if they themselves hate prayers! They quote for you the Constitution and the Freedom of Speech!
How we do misuse the Name of the Lord for our own selfish gains! Sad
