What need there is for silence in our world. We are engulfed by sounds without relief. How shall we ever hear the whisperings of the Spirit amidst the noise... the clamor without and within. Silence is one of those riches that cannot bought with coin...but only by willingness. This willingness to silence and solitude will be received by the Lord as a prayer in itself. It says to Him 'Here I am, Lord.' What good things will occur when we learn to 'be still' in His Presence? Thomas Merton on silence: "If you love truth, be a lover of silence. Silence, like the sunlight, will illuminate you in God...Silence will unite you to God."
