Silence: The Language of God

Silence is truly a virtue when practiced for God. In developing a love for silence, you will learn a deeper wisdom, a broader outlook on everyday life, and a brighter vision of God's nearness and love. In human conversations, you will listen more and talk less, you will learn more and make fewer mistakes. People will respect your judgments more because you will think before speaking. Each time you open your mouth, you will do so for a definite purpose, a good purpose. God's wisdom will take the place of your human folly, and your words will help those who hear you.
Dear reader, may these last days of your Lenten journey teach you the profound importance of silence, the language of God. ~Friar Rex
