In Silence Christ Shall Speak

Many saints have avoided the company of other people whenever possible in order to enjoy a closer union with Christ. One of them once remarked: 'As often as I have gone among men, I returned less a man.' Isn't this true of you when you talk too long? It is easier to keep silence altogether than to stop talking when you should. 

In silence Christ shall speak to you with less interruptions. His words will come in the form of ideas, desires, intentions, and resolutions which arise in your soul. You will hear His voice with less distraction. Love silence and learn to use it well. Then will you draw closer to Christ, as He is close to you.
Dear Reader, may your Lenten journey take you into silence where you can hear Christ speaking within your heart. ~Friar Rex
