Catholic devotional DAILY DEVOTIONS: 'Hearing the Cries'
Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
I have waited, waited for the LORD,
and he stooped toward me and heard my cry.
And he put a new song into my mouth,
a hymn to our God.
Psalm 40:2, 4
Like most parents, my early days of fatherhood were difficult. For, without their ability to use words, how was I to know what my child needed? And yet, with time I learned the different cries of my children; I grew to distinguish hunger from discomfort from just a need to be held.

We grow in faith in much the same way. We cry out and the Father hears us, discerning our needs and giving what is necessary. Eventually, our cries are replaced by words, and those words become a song of praise, an offering back to the provider of comfort and daily bread.
Hear my cries, even now, O Lord.
