Be silent, still, aware
for there, within your heart,
the Spirit is at prayer.
Open and find
heart-wisdom.
Christ.

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness.
God is the friend of silence.
See how nature -- trees, flowers, grass -- grows in silence;
see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence.
We need silence to be able to touch souls.
- S. Teresa of Calcutta
