solitary silent moments


a place where we are freed from the victimizing compulsions of the world
a place of great struggle and great encounter

solitude does not mean privacy
but a quality of the heart that cannot be disturbed
by the needs of others
an infinite space into which anyone can be invited

silence makes solitude a reality

words should be born out of silence
and lead deeper into silence

the Word of God
born out of the eternal silence of God

the Word of God does not break the silence of God
but rather unfolds the immeasurable richness of His silence

silence teaches us to speak

much can be said
without much being spoken
