Default "Talk to Jesus but also listen to Him"

In a conversation with Jesus we can ask Him as friends do, but also we have to be receptive to His answers. We can do so in silence, in adoration.

Pope Francis says:

Quote:
"Listening to and recognizing [Jesus'] voice implies intimacy with him, which is consolidated in prayer, in the meeting heart to heart with the divine Master and Shepherd of our souls," he said May 12.

"This intimacy with Jesus, this being open, talking with Jesus, strengthens in us the desire to follow him," the pope continued, "to come out of the labyrinth of wrong paths, to abandon selfish behaviors, to set out on the new paths of fraternity and the gift of ourselves, in imitation of Him."
