At the beginning of a new academic year, we have many things pressing in on us: the demands of work, family commitments and pressures, and the question of how we will do in our classes. In the Ignatian tradition there is always an emphasis on taking time out to reflect and meditate on these things, to order our lives wisely, and to be intentional about how we conduct ourselves. This is especially true as we begin new endeavors. Of course, reflection means that we actually take time to “listen” and not merely “hear” the voices and sounds around us.
The tradition of listening is important as we learn from instructors, other students, colleagues, and the voices of those in the texts we read. Fr. John Veltri, S.J. composed a prayer that captures the importance of listening and it might be especially relevant for the beginning of a new term and how we should take time out to listen:
“Teach me to listen, O God, to those nearest me, my family, my friends, my co-workers.
Help me to be aware that no matter what words I hear, the message is, “Accept the person I am. Listen to me.”
Teach me to listen, my caring God, to those far from me– the whisper of the hopeless, the plea of the forgotten, the cry of the anguished.
Teach me to listen, O God my Mother, to myself. Help me to be less afraid to trust the voice inside — in the deepest part of me.
Teach me to listen, Holy Spirit, for your voice — in busyness and in boredom, in certainty and doubt, in noise and in silence.
Teach me, Lord, to listen. Amen.”
