Day of Prayer and Reflection

November 12, 2019 @ 12:00 am

Today is a day of Prayer and Reflection, when the Sisters keep silence except for prayer. In silence God speaks to the heart and heals trauma inflicted on it by failing to live according to the Gospel. It is a day of restoration, rest, and renewal.

“One of the greatest attacks of the enemy is to make you busy, to make you hurried, to make you noisy, to make you distracted, to fill the people of God and the Church of God with so much noise and activity that there is no room for prayer. There is no room for being alone with God. There is no room for silence. There is no room for meditation.”  (Paul Washer)

“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.”  (Saint Teresa of Calcutta)

“Listen carefully, my child, to your master's precepts, and incline the ear of your heart. Receive willingly and carry out effectively your loving father's advice, that by the labor of obedience you may return to Him from whom you had departed by the sloth of disobedience.”
–St. Benedict of Nursia, The Rule of Saint Benedict
