Keep Silence With God
In order to hear the voice of God, one has to have silence in one's soul and to keep silence;not a gloomy silence, but an interior silence; that is to say, recollection in God. One can speak a great deal without breaking silence; and, on the contrary, one can speak little and be constantly breaking silence.
~Saint Faustina Kawalska~
A call to silence. Hmmm, this is something I have not been able to achieve. I think I love to hear the sound of my own voice. I have so much to say, and I have to admit, little of it is of value. I think I must be that gong that makes no music in the midst of the music made by the glorious voice of God. And perhaps I have this need to avoid silence because I fear God's voice. What will he ask me to do!?! And again, working to achieve silence requires effort. I am LAZY! I do need help and the assistance can only come from God in whom I MUST rely! I must rely on the Holy Spirit to achieve this and again I must practice it. It seems in this quote by Saint Faustina I have found another call to try again!
