“The Lord is in His holy temple, let all the earth keep silence before Him” Habakkuk 2:20
God cannot be found in noise and agitation. His true power and love are revealed in what is hardly perceptible, in gentle breeze that requires stillness and quiet to detect. In silence, God listens to us. In silence, listen to Him. In silence, God speaks to our souls and the power of His word is enough to transform our very being. We cannot speak to God and to the world at the same time. We need the sacred space that silence creates in order to turn our undivided attention toward God even if it is only for a few precious moments of our day.

“Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me.
This is our Eucharistic connection to our Lord. Without him we can do nothing.
May we find that sacred space of silence we need to be with our Lord today.
